Milonga
Lyrics: Enrique Cadícamo
Translation: Felipe & Ayano
Music: Charlo
Recorded by Francisco Canaro with Ernesto Famá in 1939*

Español

No hay tierra como la mía
y ésta milonga les canto,
y ésta milonga les canto,
y si alguien me desafía,
le juego dándole tantos.

Soy un criollo de avería
que el mundo fui recorriendo,
que el mundo fui recorriendo,
y al final vine diciendo
¡no hay tierra como la mía!

(Instrumental)

English

There’s no land like mine
and I am singing you this milonga,
and I am singing you this milonga,
and if someone challenges me
I will play giving you a headstart.

I am a shady criollo
who went all around the world,
who went all around the world,
and in the end I came saying
there’s nothing like my homeland!

(Instrumental)

Note: Francisco Lomuto also recorded this song with Fernando Díaz (singer) in 1939
