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.

I think there always has to be an evolving development of any art form, because society is changing. First one has to cultivate the roots so that later you can give it your own evolution criteria, which is what sometimes doesn't happen because they start off directly with what is new tango. That's why people often aren't aware of what is a milonga-style or salon-style tango, or canyengue, the same as they don't have any idea if it's D'Agostino playing or Pugliese or D'Arienzo. The essence is lost if one doesn't have the basic grounding, and then it turns into something hollow, empty, going beyond the development they want to make. -Horacio Godoy
