Music: Armando Acquarone. Lyrics: Enrique Gaudino.

I’m sorry to see you today, Flores neighborhood,
corner of my games, cordial and happy.
Dear memories, love story
evoking a romance of endless bliss.

I was born in that neighborhood, I grew up on its sidewalks,
one day I took flight dreaming of success;
and today, poor and defeated, loaded with sorrows,
I have returned tired from so much wandering …

Happiness and fortune eluded me,
shreds of scattered reveries I left;
and in the midst of so many misfortunes and sorrows,
the blessed desire to see you again …
In strange lands I fought with luck
straight forward and direct I did not know how to lie,
and seeing me overwhelmed, poorer than ever,
I returned to my love looking to die.

I’d better never think about the return
if when I saw you again I started to cry.
My lips said trembling in prayer:
This is not my neighborhood, it changed places! …
I’d rather, to stay, die on the trail,
if I have lost everything, neighborhood and home …
Another wound does not make a dent,
it will be my destiny to roll and roll …

Music: Osvaldo Donato. Lyrics: Sandalio Gómez.

Sharpen this milonga
That has already started.
I felt that those bellows that grumble
From the heart.

And the girls have come
in “true Vuitton”.
Tango flatters life
And in his notes he scatters
his love.

Cute tango from the suburb
That I,
I haven’t seen him pass out
Triumphed!

Cute tango that when singing
Overturned,
His faith, his love.
A man you have to be.

“Bohardilla” by Miguel Caló y su Orquesta Típica with Raúl Iriarte in vocals, 1944.

Music: Rodolfo Blasi. Lyrics: Horacio Sanguinetti.

“Joyful garret of Paris,
old memory and something gray
of those student years,
of dreamer and wanderer.

Who knows today where they will be
the companions of that yesterday
and that girlfriend of mine…
Strange memory…
the years go by
and I never forgot them.

An attic that was a poem
facing the waters of the Seine.
The snow that fell incessantly
painted a sad picture in the city.

And there, in the Latin Quarter,
the voice of an Argentine tango…
and those sad eyes of Mimi
crying the day I left.

That garret in Paris
it’s an old gray picture
that with pain I am looking,
because it is fading…

Those verses to Mimi,
sun and an April sky,
I keep remembering them…
Golden hair and blue eyes,
unforgettable for me.”

“Demasiado tarde” by Ángel D’Agostino y su Orquesta Típica with Ángel Vargas in vocals, 1946.

Music: Francisco Troppoli. Lyrics: Agustín Horacio Delamónica.

“It’s all the same, nothing has changed:
the same patio, the same sun,
the same ivy, which like my hope
kept growing in my absence
staying green as ever…

It’s just me who’s come back changed,
carrying all my life’s suffering.
I feel the stab of disillusionment in my chest
as my pained heart bleeds with suffering…

My darling…talk to me!
At least tell me that you hate me.
But don’t just stand there silent and indifferent,
because your frigidity is killing me…

Tell me all your woes—
come on, don’t harbor such resentment for me!
I need the warmth of your endearments,
of your caresses, of your love.

I’ve come back too late
to be able to comfort you.
I’m carrying this weight on my conscience:
knowing that you’ve never
been able to forgive me…

Only now do I understand all the pain
that my abandonment caused you…
You have suffered so much! The wrinkles drawn
on your face are the traces
of your weeping and your sorrow.”

Translation: Derrick Del Pilar.

"Danza maligna", Argentine Tango music sheet cover.

“Danza maligna” by Enrique Rodríguez y su Orquesta Típica with Armando Moreno in vocals, 1940.

“Danza maligna” by Enrique Rodríguez y su Orquesta Típica with Armando Moreno in vocals, 1940.

Music: Fernando Randle. Lyrics: Claudio Frollo.

“Courageous compass measures are dragged
of the tango that shrinks and stretches …
His suffering music would seem
feel that a threat is coming.
We will both live the quarter of an hour
of the nostalgic and malignant dance.
Let’s hear the hearts beat
under the number of Venus Aphrodite.

The pleasure of the gods, perverse dancing,
Tango is a rite and is religion;
Criollas orchestras are their altars
and the priest, his bandoneon.

I want to feel trapped
as in the prison of my pain,
keep silent, half my soul
that there is a secret between the two.

Courageous compass measures are dragged
of the tango that takes over the fibers.
The game of your curlers in my temples
will be the extreme unction of my agony.
I invite you to penetrate this temple
where love purifies it all.
We will both live the quarter of an hour
of nostalgic and evil dance!”
