Dejate de locuras, muchacho,
pensa bien lo que haces.
Me han dicho que te han visto borracho
llorando una mujer…

¡ Como el dolor te ha cambiado!
que ya no sos el de ayer.
Volve pa’ la milonga,
que un fueye rezonga
como llamandote.

Al compas de un tango la habras de olvidar
con una pebeta que sepa bailar,
una piba buena, que al mirar tus ojos,
comprenda la pena de tu corazon.

Al compas de un tango habras de encontrar
a esa mujercita sincera y leal,
y veras que un dia, lleno de alegria
a la que lloraste ni recordaras.

Dejate de locuras, muchacho,
tenes que reaccionar
El hombre debe ser de quebracho
pa’ resistir el mal.

Si esa mujer te ha hecho daño
perderla ha sido mejor.
Volve pa’ la milonga,
que un fueye rezonga,
pa’ darte mas valor.

Stop the madness, guy,
think well what you do.
They told me that they’ve seen you drunk
crying for a woman…

How the pain has changed you!
that you’re no longer the one of yore.
Come back to the dance hall,
that a bellow is grumbling
as if it was calling you…

To the beat of a tango you’ll forget her
with a lass that knows how to dance,
with a good girl, who when watching your eyes,
understands the pain of your heart.

To the beat of a tango you’ll find
that sincere and loyal woman,
and you’ll see that a day, full of joy
the one you cried for, you won’t remember.

Stop the madness, guy,
you have to react.
The man must be strong
to resist what is bad.

If that woman has harmed you
losing her it is for the better.
Come back to the dance hall,
that a bellow is grumbling,
to give you more courage.

CASTELLANO
ENGLISH
Cuando un viejo se enamora
anda el pobre en un revuelo,
con betún para el bigote
y tinturitas pa’l pelo.

Cuando un viejo se enamora
anda todo alborotado
y pa’ que ella no se avive,
ni lo tome por un pibe,
hasta duerme encorsetao.

De regreso de la cita
de una tarde venturosa,
a ponerse en la camita,
a tomar las pildoritas
y aplicarse las ventosas.

¡A la brisa no lo expongas…!
Porque se siente engripao
y si baila alguna conga,
o un foxtrot o una milonga
queda todo desarmado…

Cuando un viejo se enamora
pierde toda su carpeta
y hay que ver los papelones
que hace ver a su pebeta.

Frente a aquella que lo hechiza
le palpita el corazón
y ni larga una sonrisa
por temor que la postiza
se le piante del buzón.

¡A la brisa no lo expongas…!
Porque se siente engripao
y si baila alguna conga,
o un foxtrot o una milonga
queda todo desarmado…

When an old man falls in love
the poor one is in an uproar,
with polish for the mustache
and color dyes for the hair.

When an old man falls in love
he acts very agitated,
and so she will not wise up,
and mistake him for a boy,
he sleeps wearing a corset.

Back from the date
of an adventurous afternoon,
get in the bed,
take the little pills
and apply suction therapy.

Don’t expose him to the draft…!
Because he gets the flu
and if he dances a conga,
or a foxtrot or a milonga
he ends up all dismantled…

When an old man falls in love
he loses all his marbles
and what about all the embarrassment
that he makes his girl friend see.

Facing the one who bewitches him
his heart palpitates
and he avoids having a smile
for fear that his dentures
fly off his mouth.

Don’t expose him to the draft…!
Because he gets the flu
and if he dances a conga,
or a foxtrot or a milonga
he ends up all dismantled…
