Argentine Tango School

“La madrugada” by Pedro Laurenz y su Orquesta Típica with Carlos Bermúdez in vocals, 1944 (English translation).

Carlos Bermudez & Pedro Laurenz, Argentine Tango music.
Music: Ángel Maffia. Lyrics: Cátulo Castillo.

Turns the night on the schedule
of the sleepless and sad
bell tower clock.

The grief of a tram rolls,
that lonely wears
blue melancholy…
And a haze ghost
wraps thin
gloom over the café.
The night cries in its agony.
What am I looking for?… Where am I going?…
I do not know, I do not know…

Will it be the sad and distant
Margot, who was
like a light in my shadows?
Would it be her old window?
Would it be her voice that names me?
Would it be the defeated friend
that just yesterday
gave me a hug crying?

I don’t know what I’m looking for incessantly,
that I will find in your darkness…

I want to cross the dawn
searching through mists
the one that was not forgotten…
Old stars of ennui
the dawn light shines
dying inside me.
Spell with which ties me
the silver moon
and the murky coffee…
The night cries in the dew.
What am I looking for?… Who I am?…
I do not know, I do not know…
