HAMBRE lyrics

LYRICS: Enrique Cadícamo
MUSIC: Juan Carlos Cobián

Andá a hacerle el cuento a otra, que conmigo has terminado.
Que te crees? Que porque aguanto, estoy en liquidación?
Voy a darte vacaciones por tiempo indeterminado,
pa que otra vez no confundas gordura con hinchazón.
Ya me tenes requeteharta con tanto grupo en almibar.
Me has hecho bajar seis kilos de un solo saque, traidor!
Vos me hacés ver la comida con catalejo'e Marína,
y después andas diciendo que estoy flaca por amor.

Che, Fresco de Goya,
sacudí el altiyo
Rey del Apoliyo,
y andá a trabajar...
Laburá de guarda,
hacete pequero,
chafe, pistolero,
o mozo de bar.
Basta de vigilias!
Se acabó el aguante!
Perdona el espiante!
Yo quiero vivir!
No yes que parezco
un cacho de alambre?
Que te aguante el hambre
la mujer fakir!

Tu tranquilidad pasmosa es lo que más me subleva:
vos no te hacés mala sangre de campanear cómo voy..
Me tenés en el trapecio de la vida haciendo pruebas...
Soy tu mujer? Soy un bulto? Al final, que es lo que soy?
No quiero correr más liebres; mi independencia ha llegado.
Te dejo un ramo de olivos y que seas muy feliz.
No vaya a ser todavia que por quedarme a tu lado,
de ayunar tan a menudo, se me piante hasta el chassis.

From Carole McCurdy: After that tanda, I found that every man I danced with that evening had something beautiful to offer, no matter their postural eccentricites or limitations of technique. In fact, their eccentricities and limitations were something to be respected and accorded a value, something that added rich flavor to the dance. If my partner is stiff as a board, well, it means that we begin the tanda by doing the 'stiff as a board' tango, which can offer some very creative moments of shared comedy, playing close to the edge of being off-balance. Whee-ha-ha. Maybe by the end of the tanda our dance will have expanded into something more soft and flexible and grounded, maybe not. The cortina has its own great value, after all.
I left the milonga that night feeling thrilled and humbled. How sorely I had underestimated these 'bad dancers,' how foolishly I had cheated myself out of the deeper pleasures of connecting in the dance. It wan't somebody else's fat ego getting in the way of dancing, it was my own.
Astrid responds: It works both ways. The great advantage (and burden) that women have in dancing the tango is that it enables them to experience a hundred different worlds, by dancing with different men and, if they are sensitive and intuitive enough, for a while becoming that man's creation to certain extent, for better or for worse...
It also works the other way round. One of the best dancers has told me that he dances in a different way with every woman, because she inspires him to do certain moves.
And the total is then always more than just the sum of its parts. Wish that in real life we also had some music to guide us to follow each other's steps...
