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!

I think there always has to be an evolving development of any art form, because society is changing. First one has to cultivate the roots so that later you can give it your own evolution criteria, which is what sometimes doesn't happen because they start off directly with what is new tango. That's why people often aren't aware of what is a milonga-style or salon-style tango, or canyengue, the same as they don't have any idea if it's D'Agostino playing or Pugliese or D'Arienzo. The essence is lost if one doesn't have the basic grounding, and then it turns into something hollow, empty, going beyond the development they want to make. -Horacio Godoy
