The great poet Garcia Jimenez writes a memorable set of verses using card game terminology and jargon to describe the scars left by life experiences on a man who resents hearing his hard earned wisdom called pure, insane luck.
CASTELLANO
ENGLISH
En el naipe del vivir
suelo acertar la carta de la boca,
y a mi lado oigo decir
que es porque estoy con una suerte loca.
Al saber le llaman suerte..!
Yo aprendí viendo trampearme,
y ahora sólo han de coparme
cuando banquen con la Muerte.
En el naipe del vivir,
para ganar, primero perdí.

Yo también entré a jugar
confiado en la ceguera del azar
y luego vi que todo era mentir
y el capital en manos del más vil…
No me creés…¡Te pierde el corazón!
¡Qué fe tenés!…¿No ves que no acertás?
¿Que si apuntás a cartas de ilusión
son de dolor las cartas que se dan?

No me envidies si me ves
acertador, pues soy el Desengaño…
Y si ciego así perdés,
es que tenés los lindos veinte años…
El tapete es la esperanza
y, a pesar de lo aprendido,
si me dan lo que he perdido
vuelve a hundirme la confianza…
¡Suerte loca es conservar
una ilusión en tanto penar!

In the card game of life
I often choose the right words out of my mouth,
and I hear say around me
that’s because I’ve an insane luck.
To knowing, they call it luck ..!
I learned by watching them trick me,
and now they’re only going to beat me
when they use Death as the dealer.
In the card game of life,
to win, first I lost.

I also got in the game
trusting in the blindness of chance
and then I saw that all was about lying
and the capital was in the hands of the most vile …
Don’t you believe me … your heart is failing you!
How certain you are! … Can’t you see you got it wrong?
That if you seek illusion cards
they deal cards of pain?

Don’t envy me if you see me
being right, for I am the Heartbreak …
And if you lose so blind,
is because you’re a cute twenty years old …
The card table is hope
and, despite of what’s been learned,
if you give me what I lost
confidence sinks me again…
Insane luck is to keep
an illusion among so much suffering

CASTELLANO
ENGLISH
Conozco muchos que después de criticar
se fueron a clavar en un cariño
y esos, después de reír,
los he visto sufrir
y llorar como niños…
Ahí nadie puede guapear
porque he visto aflojar
hasta el más sobrador.
Si no querés pifiar
tendrás que caminar
con cuidado en el amor.Llorar,
llorar por una mujer
es quererla
y no tenerla.
Llorar,
Llorar por una mujer
es muy hondo padecer.
Vos, que pa’l amor
fuiste retobao,
hoy tu pena es fuerte
y te tiene arrinconcao,
y hoy que no la ves
y que la querés
se te achica el alma,
y recién sabés
lo que es:
Llorar,
llorar por una mujer.

Muchachos, ya lo ven,
al potro del amor
no hay gaucho domador que lo domine.
Cuando nos entra a tallar
una pena de amar,
el varón se define…
Ahí comprobamos lo que es
ese fiero revés
que nos hace llorar…
Conozco muchos que
después de criticar
los he ido a consolar.

I know many who after criticizing
ended up stuck in an romance
and them, after having laughed,
I have seen them suffering
and crying like children…
There nobody can bluff
because I have seen weakened
even the most conceited.
If you don’t want to fail
you will have to thread
with care in matters of love.To cry,
to cry for a woman
is to want her
and not to have her.
To cry,
To cry for a woman
is very deep suffering
You, who, for love
were cunning,
today your heartache is strong
and it has you cornered
and today that you can’t see her
and that you want her
your soul shrinks
and now you know
what is like
To cry,
to cry for a woman.

Guys, so you see,
for the colt of love
there is no horse breaker gaucho to dominate it.
When we start being annoyed
by a heartache of love,
the man defines himself…
There we verify what it is
that fierce misfortune
that makes us cry…
I know many that
after criticizing
I have gone to console them.
