3. Tango australiano (50/90)

This was also inspired by a Song skirmish prompt – accordion – but was decidedly not a one hour effort. Took me about two days of poking at it. Not actually speaking Spanish apart from that one semester I took a decade ago was a bit of a hindrance. I apologise for mangling the language (and the tango, come to think of it)! Lots of fun rolling my R’s and making the vocals as *d r a m a* as possible though. This also features a cello solo – been meaning to include cello but my skillz aren’t, um, that great. The lyrics are a tiny bit exaggerated but I do love Spanish and Latin American music in general. Sexy as hell.

Tango australiano

No hablo español pero me gusta mucho
Its rhythmic flow
Breathes romantic soul
Cantar el amor
Cantar el dolor
En español es mejor

Tango, tango
Tango de lejos
Tango, tango
Tango australiano

Mi corazon belongs in Argentina
Where the streets
Pulse with the tango beat
Vivir para ti
Cantar para ti
Bailar, baila para mi

Tango, tango
Tango de lejos
Tango, tango
Tango australiano

El accordéon está en mi alma
Bandonéon
Will stay when all is gone
Lo que es muy triste
Lo más cruel qu’existe
Es que soy, soy de Sydney

Tango, tango
Tango de lejos
Tango, tango
Tango australiano

[instrumental]

Tango, tango
Tango de lejos
Tango, tango
Tango australiano
