LYRICS: Celedonio Esteban Flores
MUSIC: Pedro Maffia

No es que este arrepentido
de haberte querido tanto,
lo que me apena es tu olvido
y tu traición
me sume en amargo llanto;
si vieras, estoy tan triste
que canto por no llorar;
si para tu bien te fuiste,
para tu bien
yo te debo perdonar!

Aquella tarde que yo te vi
tu estampa me gusto,
pebeta de arrabal,
y sin saber por que te segui
y el corazón te di
y fue tan solo por mi mal.
Mira si fue sincero mi querer
que nunca imagine
la hiel de tu traición.
Que solo y triste me quede
sin amor y sin fe
y derrotado el corazón.

Despues de libar traidora
en el rosal de mi amor
te marchas engañadora
para buscar
el encanto de otra flor;
y buscando la más pura,
la más linda de color,
la ciegas con tu hermosura
para después
engañarla con tu amor.

Ten cuidado, mariposa,
de los sentidos amores,
no te cieguen los fulgores
de alguna falsa pasion,
porque entonces pagaras
toda tu maldad,
toda tu traición.

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...
