“Anselmo Acuña, the herdsman”

Music: Félix Laurenz / Pedro Casella. Lyrics: Luis Caruso.

Anselmo Acuña, the herdsman,
when he feel like a singer
in his humility as a sparrow,
he has the soul of a goldfinch.

Neither sluggish nor lazy
meek and strong as an ox
Anselmo Acuña, the herdsman,
he is a reliable man.

Herds, herds, herds,
don’t cry for her my heart …

Sibling of the stars
were her eyes,
two black silk braids,
crowned his head,
and her mouth was a breva fig
with a cherry wound.
Why increase sadness …
don’t cry her, my heart.

Listen to me Manón

Music: Francisco Pracánico. Lyrics: Roberto Chanel / Claudio Frollo.

When you know that my love is full of truth
your fear, your indifference will pass.
The love that I gave you nestled in my chest,
Don’t you fell sad it may die of pain?
Round my nights your wavy hair
and the sweetness of your voice caresses me.
While the light that is reflected in your pupils,
tells me: my heart is yours.

Listen to me Manón, and let yourself be loved,
remove your stubborn concern, your suffering.
The future is ours, I see it in your eyes,
I see my hopes of loving in you.

My dreams return, you appear, my life,
and reproaches me the sadness in your voice.
I feel in my soul the torture of jealousy
and my heart suffers a lot.

Story of a love

Music & Lyrics: Carlos Almarán.

You’re no longer by my side, sweetheart
I have only loneliness in my soul
and if I can’t see you anymore,
why God made me love you
to make me suffer more …

You were always the reason for my existence,
worshiping you for me was religion.
And in your kisses I found
the fire that gave me,
The love and the passion.

It is the story of a love,
as there is no other like it.
That made me understand,
all good and all evil
that turn on my life,
turning it off later.
Oh, what a dark life,
my sweetheart,
without your love I will not live!

“Try to get the dance out of me”

Music & Lyrics: Miguel Bucino.

Open hand with men, and rightful in any situation,
I have two brave passions: the gamble and the liquor …

I’m a dancer of the good school, there is no milonga where I am out of place.

Sometimes I’m penniless and other times I’m like a lord.
What do you want me to do, brother? If it is a gift from fate!
If the desire to save money has never been my virtue!
I am electrified by bubbles and feminine eyes
Since those sweet days of my joyous youth!

But i don’t regret
of those beautiful moments
that I fully committed myself in life.
I had everything I wanted …
and even what I didn’t want
the fact is that I enjoyed it.
My conduct was serene,
I was lavish in the good
and in the bad I cringed.
I was a tycoon and a tramp
and today I know the world so well
that I prefer to be like this.

What do you want me to do, brother, if I was born to die poor,
with a tango between the lips and in a card game entangled.
I play, sing, drink, laugh … and although I don’t have a copper left,
when the last hour rang … get the dance out of me!

“Déjame no quiero verte más” by Carlos Di Sarli y su Orquesta Típica with Alberto Podestá in vocals, 1947 (English translation).

Music: Francisco Canaro / Mariano Mores. Lyrics: Ivo Pelay.

Leave me, I don’t want to see you anymore,
let me try to live in peace.

Don’t say I’m already
drunk like yesterday,
more harm than alcohol
they made me the anxieties
and the sorrows of loving.
My glass is full
of oblivion and illusion
and in it I want to sink
my despair.

Leave me, seeing you hurts me,
leave me, I can no longer.

Dazzled I loved you
as you love once,
and your life and my love
in a dream I locked up.
And today you see,
but let me
I never want to see you again
let me try to live in peace.

The shadow of your eyes,
the red of your lips,
the fire from your arms
melt into wine
with flashes of dagger.
Useless is running away
of your fascination,
useless asking
my heart to forget.

Come here, I want to see you next to me,
kiss me, without you I don’t know how to live …
Kiss me heart, kiss me heart …
