Sing along with ROBERTO GOYENECHE with ORQUESTA ANIBAL TROILO

DEAR ALBERTO: Firstly I have only now discovered your site and I would like to congratulate you on an excellent site and such well presented Lyrics in English and Spanish.
As a dedicated tango dancer, having just returned from three months in Argentina dancing Tango, together with my passion for learning Castellano your translation is invaluable to me.
I am searching for the lyrics of Lo Que Vos Te Mereces as it is a Tango that I love to dance to and I would like to feel the words in addition to the music.
It was recorded by Anibal Troilo y his orquesta tipica. Title of CD – From Argentina to the World EMI 4 94432 2
Vocals by Roberto Goyeneche.
Thank you again for your dedication and the richness of your site .
Good luck and best regards.
Roger Pointon-Bell
CASTELLANO

¡Que querés, no te esperaba!
Perdoname la franqueza
porque desde que te fuiste
no pensaba verte más.
Y hoy que honrás con tu presencia
la miseria de esta pieza
la sorpresa del encuentro
la podés imaginar…

Perdoná, no me di cuenta,
casi ni te di la mano.
Si querés quedarte un rato
sin ninguna pretensión…
Poco tengo a ofrecerte,
no sabés como he quedado,
si estoy dando lo que he dado
p’a pagar mi metejón

Y vos, estoy seguro
que habrás echado buena
y que te dio vergüenza
entrar en el bulín.
Ya no andarás golpeándole
al hambre y a la pena.
Tu vida noche y día
será un solo festín

Me alegro que hayas vuelto
después de todo un año
con ese vestidito
que yo te regalé.
Tu lujo, tus alhajas,
me hubieran hecho daño..
¡Que bien que te has portado,
volviendo como ayer!

¿Que tenés? ¿Estás llorando?
No te pongas de ese modo.
Si no vas a consolarme
con tenerme compasión
No fue sólo por tu culpa
que he perdido todo, todo.
Es que entonces yo tenía
un otario corazón

¿Que decís? ¿Que te engañaron
con un mundo de promesas?
¿Que volvés arrepentida?
¿Que hoy recién me comprendés…?
¡Que querés si se acabaron
tus delirios de grandeza!
Hoy tenés de recompensa
lo que vos te merecés.

Y vos, estoy seguro
que habrás echado buena
y que te dio vergüenza
entrar en el bulín
Ya no andarás golpeándole
al hambre y a la pena.
Tu vida noche y dia
será un solo festín

Me alegro que hayas vuelto
después de todo un año
con ese vestidito
que yo te regalé
Tus lujos, tus alhajas,
me hubieran hecho daño..
¡Ay! ¡Que bien que te has portado,
volviendo como ayer!

What do you want, I wasn’t expecting you!
Forgive me the plain talk
because since you left
I thought I never see you again.
And today that you honor with your presence
the misery of this room,
the surprise of this encounter
you can imagine…

Sorry, I did not realize,
that I barely shook hands.
If you want to stay a while
without any pretension…
I have little to offer you,
you don’t know how I have been,
I’m giving what I’ve had
to pay for my infatuation.

And you, I am sure
that you have done well
and that you felt ashamed
to walk into the place.
You are no longer being hit
by hunger and pain.
Your life, night and day
must be a continuous feast.

I am glad that you’ve returned
after an entire year
wearing that little dress
that I gave you.
Your luxury, your jewels,
would have hurt me,
How well you have behaved,
returning like yesterday!

What happens? Are you crying?
Don’t be that way.
You are not going to console me
by showing me compassion.
It wasn’t all your fault
that I lost everything, everything.
It is that then,
I had a stupid heart.

What say you? They misled you
with a world of promises?
That you are returning repentant?
That now you understand me…?
What do you expect if it’s all over
for your delusions of grandeur!!
Today you have the reward
of what you deserve.

And you, I am sure
that you have done well
and that you felt ashamed
to walk into the place.
You are no longer being hit
by hunger and pain.
Your life, night and day
must be a continuous feast.

I am glad that you’ve returned
after an entire year
wearing that little dress
that I gave you.
Your luxury, your jewels,
would have hurt me,
How well you have behaved,
returning like yesterday!
