"La vida es una milonga" by Pedro Laurenz y su Orquesta Típica with Martín Podestá in vocals, 1941 (English translation of lyrics).

Marcelo Solis dancing Argentine Tango at a milonga in Buenos Aires.
Music and lyrics: Fernando Jose Juan Montoni and Rodolfo Sciammarella.

Everyone is waiting
Improving 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.
