LYRICS: Ivo Pelay
MUSIC: Francisco Canaro

Al son de tu majestad
hoy pasar te vi
por mi gran ciudad,
y en vos descurbí
que la copia sos
de una que olvidé,
y que, como vos,
porteña fue...

Sos la flor de Buenos Aires,
porteñita primorosa,
digna nieta de la bella
que paseaba majestuosa,
en aquella gran aldea
de ventanas coloniales
y patrullas federales.
Sos la flor de Buenos Aires
porteñita idolatrada,
copia fiel de aquella estampa
que hace tiempo que se fue.

Sos la flor de la ciudad
tu faz heredó
la serenidad
de la que pasó.
Vos me hacés volver
al pasado aquel
de mi amor de ayer,
sos copia fiel.

Tango Shoes

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
