SAN BENITO DE PALERMO lyrics

LYRICS: Carlos Angel Pesce
MUSIC: Juan Francisco Noli


San Benito de Palermo
por la Virgen y el Señor,
pedile a Don Juan Manuel
que me salve de este horror,
San Benito de Palermo
ayudame por favor,
que ya me llevan para el banquillo
a los redobles del tambor.
Ya están, Señor...
de frente los Mazorqueros
que me van a fusilar,
vendrá mi amor?
a darme el adiós postrero
en mi triste agonizar.
San Benito de Palermo
ya no tengo salvación,
se oye el toque del clarín
y está listo el pelotón,
San Benito de Palermo
muero por la libertad,
y ya que nadie escuchó mi ruego,
que me fusilen sin piedad.

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
