MADRESELVA lyrics

LYRICS: Luis César Amadorii
MUSIC: Francisco Canaro


Vieja pared del arrabal,
tu sombra fué mi compañera.
De mi niñez sin esplendor
la amiga fué tu madreselva.

Cuando, temblando, mi amor primero,
con su esperanza besó mi alma,
yo, junto a vos, pura y feliz,
cantaba así mi primera confesión:

Madreselvas en flor que me vieron nacer,
y en la vieja pared sorprendieron mi amor...

Tu humilde caricia es como el cariño
primero y querido que siento por él!
Madreselvas en flor, que trepándose van,
es su abrazo tenaz y dulzón como aquel...

Si todos los años tus flores renacen
hacé que no muera mi primer amor!

Pasaron los años, y mil desengaños
yo vengo a contarte, mi vieja pared...

Así aprendí que hay qué fingir
para vivir decentemente.
Que amor y fe mentiras son,
y del dolor se ríe la gente.

Hoy que la vida me ha castigado
y me ha enseñado su credo amargo,
Vieja pared, con emoción
me acerco a vos, y te digo como ayer:

Madreselvas en flor, que me vieron nacer,
y en la vieja pared sorprendieron mi amor:

Tu humilde caricia es como el cariño
primero y querido que nunca olvidé.
Madreselvas en flor, que trepandose van,
es tu abrazo tenaz y dulzón como aquel.

Si todos los años tus flores renacen
hacé que no muera mi primer amor....

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
