MALDONADO lyrics

LYRICS: Alberto Vacarezza
MUSIC: Raúl de los Hoyos


Salud, mi arroyo del Maldonado,
mi viejo amigo del arrabal.
Hoy que estoy triste vengo a tu lado
para cantarte todo mi mal.
Desde cachorro jugué en tus aguas
y fue en tu barro que yo me crié
y me perdieron unas enaguas
del mismo barro que yo amasé.

Siguiendo solo mi metedura
sin pena alguna te abandoné
y enceguecido por su hermosura
por darle lujos hasta robé.
Como en el tiempo de mi condena
jamás la ingrata me vino a ver,
en tus orillas, como alma en pena,
busco el olvido de esa mujer.

Vos que en silencio fuiste testigo
de mil tragedias de odio y amor,
decime donde, mi viejo amigo,
se halla la causa de mi dolor.
Decime, arroyo, porque este carro
de mi existencia me ha hecho saber
que aquel que un día dejó tu barro
tarde o temprano te viene a ver.

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
