LYRICS: Ivo Pelay
MUSIC: Francisco Canaro

¡Mi Buenos Aires!
¡Mi Patria chica!
Vengo de lejos,
tierra querida...
Llego en tu busca,
ríncón en que nací,
rincón en que viví,
¡toda mi vida!

De tierra extraña,
de lejos vengo
y el alma grita
vibrando: ¡Te quiero!
Mi Buenos Aires...
¡Yo soy aquel de ayer!
¡Cielo querido,
por fin te vuelvo a ver!

Mi Buenos Aires,
¡suelo porteño!
Cómo han cambiado
tus casas y calles,
¡por otra de ensueño!
Con diagonales
y rascacielos
vas ya vestido
hoy de largo,
¡lo mismo que yo!

¡Mi Buenos Aires,
crisol de razas!
De los que llegan,
¡dulce esperanza!
Tu aspecto cambian,
pero no cambiarán
¡tu corazón jamás!

¡Ciudad adorada!
Hay en tu entraña
venas de acero
que serpentean,
gritando: ¡Progreso!
Mi Buenos Aires,
¡ciudad de mi sentir!
Cielo querido,
¡no me verás partir!

Tango is a dance in which is it easy to become obsessed with perfection. The taste of heaven that is found within tango may encourage some to seek perfection. Others may bring their own perfectionism to tango. But we should never confuse heaven and perfection. They are very different. The path of perfectionism often leads away from heaven as we find ourselves accompanied and driven forward by demons that become all too familiar. If we pursue perfection in our practice, we are likely developing the demons that seek to keep us from effective dancing.
In tango, heaven is found through the simple gift of grace. That comes from getting out on the dance floor with the person that happens to be right for the moment, opening one's heart and falling in love again. The times that this happens, one is just happy to be in the arms of another at the end of the tanda. -Stephen Brown
