Español

Toda la calle Florida lo vio
con sus polainas, galera y bastón...

Dicen que fue, allá por su juventud,
un gran Don Juan del Buenos Aires de ayer.
Engalanó la puerta del Jockey Club
y en el ojal siempre llevaba un clavel.

Toda la calle Florida lo vio
con sus polainas, galera y bastón...

Apellido distinguido,
gran señor en las reuniones,
por las damas suspiraba
y conquistaba sus corazones.

Y en las tardes de Palermo
en su coche se paseaba
y en procura de un ensueño
iba el porteño conquistador.

Toda la calle Florida lo vio
con sus polainas, galera y bastón...

English

Everyone on Florida street saw him with his gaiters, top hat and cane...

They say that he was in his youth,
a great Don Juan of Buenos Aires of yesterday.
He stood out at the door of the Jockey Club
He always had a carnation in his buttonhole.

Everyone on Florida street saw him
with his gaiters, top hat and cane...

From a distinguished family,
a real gentleman in the social gatherings,
he sighed for the ladies
and he conquered their heart.

And in the afternoons in Palermo
drove around in his car
and looking for a fantasy,
there he goes, the playboy from Buenos Aires.

Everyone on Florida street saw him
with his gaiters, top hat and cane....
