EL FIRULETE lyrics

LYRICS: Rodolfo M. Taboada
MUSIC: Maríano Mores


¿Quien fué el raro bicho
que te ha dicho, che pebete
que pasó el tiempo del firulete?
Por más que ronquen
los merengues y las congas
siempre fue tiempo para milonga.
Vos dejá nomás que algún chabón
chamuye al cuete y sacudile tu firulete
que desde el cerebro al alma
la milonga lo bordó.
Es el compás criollo y se acabó.
Pero escuchá, fijate bien,
prestale mucha atención
y ahora batí si hay algo igual
a este compás compadrón.
Bati, por Dios, si este compás
repicadito y dulzón
te burbujea en la piel
y te hace más querendón.
Pero escuchá...ja, ja... fijate bien,
prestale mucha atención.
Y ahora batí si este compás
no es un clavel reventón;
es el clavel, es el balcón,
es el percal, el arrabal,
el callejón, y es el loco firulete
de algun viejo metejón.

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
