GRISETA lyrics

LYRICS: J. Gonzales Castillo
MUSIC: Enrique Delfino


Mezcla rara de Museta y de Mimí
con caricias de Rodolfo y de Schaunard,
era la flor de París,
que un sueño de novela,
trajo al arrabal.

Y en el loco divagar del cabaret
el arrullo de algún tango compadrón
alentaba una ilusión,
soñaba con Des Grieux
queria ser Manón.

Francesita
que trajiste pizpireta
sentimental y coqueta
la poesía de Quartier...
Quién diría
que tu poema de Griseta
sólo una estrofa tendría
la silenciosa agonía
de Margarita Gauthier.

Mas la fria sordidez del arrabal
agostando la pureza de su fe,
sin hallar a su Duval
secó su corazón lo mismo que un Muguet.
Y una noche de champán y de cocó
al arrullo funeral de un bandoneón,
pobrecita se durmió,
lo mismo que Mimí,
lo mismo que Manón.

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
