“La vida es una milonga” by Pedro Laurenz y su Orquesta Típica with Martín Podestá in vocals (1941)

Milongueando. Argentine Tango dance.Todo el mundo está esperando
Mejorar su situación,
Todos viven suspirando
Con razón o sin razón.

Todo el mundo se lamenta
Si en la buena ya no están,
Nadie aguanta la tormenta
Si la contra se le da.

La vida es una milonga
Y hay que saberla bailar,
En la pista está sobrando
El que pierde su compás.

La vida es una milonga
Y hay que saberla bailar,
Porque es triste estar sentado
Mientras bailan los demás.

Music and lyrics: Fernando Jose Juan Montoni and Rodolfo Pascual Sciammarella.
Recorded by Pedro Laurenz y su Orquesta Típica, singing Martín Podestá, in May 1941.

(“Life is a milonga”

Everyone is waiting
Improve their situation,
All live sighing
Rightly or wrongly.

Everyone regrets
If in the good they are no longer,
No one can stand the storm
If the “contra” is given.

Life is a milonga
And you ought to know how to dance it,
The one who loses his rhythm
Is one too many on the dance floor.

Life is a milonga
And you ought to know how to dance it,
Because it’s sad to be sitting
While the others dance.)

I was born in Argentina. Through my family and the community that saw my upbringing, I have been intimately involved with the culture of Tango all my life, and have been an Argentine Tango dance performer, choreographer and instructor for over 30 years. I profoundly love Tango dancing, music, and culture, particularly that of the Golden Era. I am a milonguero.
