Español

En yunta con mi cigarro
y a los labios bien prendido,
te mueres mi viejo tango
con mi canto y mi silbido.

Y si oigo sonar tus fuelles
en él entreverado,
chispeando en el encerado
las cien quebradas de mi emoción.

Salir a bailar este tango
es empezar a quererte,
es mucho decir callando
dejando que hables, tan sólo vos.

Tu música es Buenos Aires
valor, guapeza y dolor,
ternura y pinta compadre
querido tango, ése sos vos.

(Instrumental)

Tu música es Buenos Aires
valor, guapeza y dolor,
ternura y pinta compadre
querido tango, ése sos vos.

English

Coupled with my cigarette
well lit to my lips,
you die, my old tango,
with my song and my whistle.

And if I hear your bellows (bandoneons)
intertwined in it,
spark on the wax coated floor
the hundred breaks of my emotion.

Going out to dance this tango
is starting to love you,
it’s a lot to say keeping quiet
letting you speak, just you.

Your music is Buenos Aires
courage, brag and sorrow,
tenderness and swagger look
dear tango, that is you.

(Instrumental)

Your music is Buenos Aires
courage, brag and sorrow,
tenderness and swagger look
dear tango, that is you.
