MARÍA lyrics

LYRICS: Enrique Cadícamo
MUSIC: Anselmo Aieta


Fue por los Corrales Viejos
y en un revuelo 'e poyeras
que nació una flor reseca
más pulida que un espejo...
A esta flor de meta y ponga
la bautizó la acordeona
y por guapa y comadrona
la llamó María Milonga.

Fue el piropo del resero
colorao como las tejas
y hasta el cornetín
del Mayoral
la acarició por las orejas.
Con percal y Agua Florida
y un malvón en la cadera
no había payador
que a improvisar
se detuviera
su gran amor.
Pero nadie entregó, la
rosa milagrosa de su corazón.

Por valiente y por bizarra
los más pesaos de Corrales
en payadas desiguales
"Hastiyaron" sus guitarras.
Había que ver la chinonga
entre la luz de los chaires
fué de todos y de nadie
pa' el amor, María Milonga.

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
