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.

Tango is a dance in which is it easy to become obsessed with perfection. The taste of heaven that is found within tango may encourage some to seek perfection. Others may bring their own perfectionism to tango. But we should never confuse heaven and perfection. They are very different. The path of perfectionism often leads away from heaven as we find ourselves accompanied and driven forward by demons that become all too familiar. If we pursue perfection in our practice, we are likely developing the demons that seek to keep us from effective dancing.
In tango, heaven is found through the simple gift of grace. That comes from getting out on the dance floor with the person that happens to be right for the moment, opening one's heart and falling in love again. The times that this happens, one is just happy to be in the arms of another at the end of the tanda. -Stephen Brown
