Lyrics: Emilio Fresedo
Translation: Felipe & Ayano
Music: Osvaldo Fresedo
Recorded by Osvaldo Fresedo with Roberto Ray in 1935

Español

Si busca consuelo no vaya a llorar,
aprenda a ser fuerte y mate el pesar.
Sonría llevando a su boca el licor,
que anime su almita esperando un amor.

El humo de un puro, la luz del lugar,
las notas que vagan le harán olvidar.
Quién sabe a su lado los que irán así
con los corazones para divertir.

(Instrumental)

English

If you look for consolation you won’t cry,
learn to be strong and kill the heaviness.
Smile taking to your mouth the liquor,
that would cheer your soul waiting for a love.

The smoke of a cigar, the light of the place,
the notes that wander will make him forget.
Who knows at his side those who will go like this
with the hearts to have fun.

(Instrumental)
