Argentine Tango School

"Que me quiten lo bailao" by Ricardo Tanturi y su Orquesta Típica with Alberto Castillo in vocals, 1943 (English translation).

Alberto Castillo, great Argentine Tango singer

"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!
