MALENA lyrics

LYRICS: Homero Manzi
MUSIC: Lucio Demare


Malena canta el tango
como ninguna
y en cada verso pone
su corazón;
a yuyo del suburbio
su voz perfuma,
Malena tiene pena
de bandoneón.
Tal vez alla en la infancia
su voz de alondra
tomo ese tono oscuro
del callejon,
o acaso aquel romance
que solo nombra
cuando se pone triste
con el alcohol.
Malena canta el tango
con voz de sombra,
Malena tiene pena
de bandoneón.

Tu canción
tiene el frio del último encuentro,
tu canción
se hace amarga en la sal del recuerdo.
Yo no se
si tu voz es la flor de una pena,
solo se
que al rumor de tus tangos, Malena,
te siento más buena
mas buena que yo.

Tus ojos son oscuros
como el olvido,
tus labios apretados
como el rencor,
tus manos, dos palomas
que sienten frio,
tus venas tienen sangre
de bandoneón.
Tus tangos son criaturas
abandonadas
que cruzan sobre el barro
del callejon
cuando todas las puertas
estan cerradas
y ladran los fantasmas
de la canción.
Malena canta el tango
con voz quebrada;
Malena tiene pena
de bandoneón.

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
