EL CHOCLO lyrics

LYRICS: Enrique Santos Discépolo
MUSIC: Ángel Gregorio Villoldo


Con este tango que es burlon y compadrito
se ato dos alas la ambición de mi suburbio;
con este tango nacio el tango y como un grito
salio del sordido barrial buscando el cielo;

Conjuro extraño de un amor hecho cadencia
que abrio caminos sin más luz que la esperanza,
mezcla de rabia de dolor, de fe, de ausencia
llorando en la inocencia de un ritmo jugueton.

Por tu milagro de notas agoreras,
nacieron sin pensarlo, las paicas y las grelas,
luna de charcos, canyengue en las caderas,
y un ansia fiera en la manera de querer...

Al evocarte, tango querido,
siento que tiemblan las baldosas de un bailongo
y oigo el rezongo de mi pasado...

Hoy, que no tengo más a mi madre,
siento que llega en punta'e pie para besarme
cuando tu canto nace al son de un bandoneón...

Carancanfunfa se hizo al mar con tu bandera
y en un 'pernó' mezclo a Paris con Puente Alsina,
triste compadre del gavion y de la mina
y hasta comadre del bacan y la pebeta.

Por vos shusheta, cana, reo y mishiadura
se hicieron voces al nacer con tu destino...
Misa de faldas, querosen, tajo y cuchillo,
que ardio en los conventillos y ardio en mi corazón!

In tango, the relationship between lead and follower, man and woman, is so intense and all consuming, that there is simply no time for small talk. The last man I danced with, I know more intricately in many ways than his lover: I know that he perspires in a tiny spot above his brow; that when the dance slows and our connection is tight, his breathing almost stops; that when my leg sweeps his, he arches his neck imperceptibly upwards; that when another couple got too close he subconsciously enclosed me in a protective embrace; and that his hand rested so delicately on the flesh of my back. Yet all I know about him are his name and his country of origin. Small talk is a luxury not afforded to us tango addicts. - Anastasia Demaggio
