SOY UN PORTEÑO lyrics

LYRICS: Celedonio Esteban Flores
MUSIC: José Razzano


Soy un Porteño nacido
en el barrio que se cuadre,
niño bien, medio compadre,
sobrador y consentido.
Tengo fama de aburrido
y ando gualgueando la guita
pero guardo la infinita
nobleza del ser humano.
Si canto con "Mano a Mano"
lloro con "La Cumparsita".

Me hice una ley: ser derecho
en la mala y en la buena,
silbo y desato la pena
que se hizo nudo en mi pecho.
Guardo en mi alma en acecho
una pasión sin medida
y sé yugarme la vida
por un naipe y una dama!
Si me habrán dejao de cama
naipes, paicas y bebidas.

Me templé en los bodegones
sacando lustre al estaño,
vi hacer callo al desengaño
en corazón de varones;
pianto de los metejones
que trae el amor fulero,
pero soy bueno y sincero
cuando el amor me echa garra.
¡Yo soy como una guitarra:
canto y lloro cuando quiero!

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
