La Cumparsita

Si supieras...
que aún dentro de mi alma
conservo aquel cariño
que tuve para ti...!
Quién sabe, si supieras
que nunca te he olvidado!
volviendo a tu pasado
te acordarás de mí...

Los amigos ya no vienen
ni siquiera a saludarme,
nadie viene a consolarme
en mi aflicción;
desde el día en que te fuiste
tengo angustias en mi pecho;
decí, percanta, qué has hecho
de mi pobre corazón!

Al cotorro abandonado
ya ni el sol de la mañana
asoma por la ventana,
como cuando estabas vos
y aquel perrito compañero
que por tu ausencia no comía
al verme solo, el otro día,
también me dejo.

Si supieras...
que aún dentro de mi alma
conservo aquel cariño
que tuve para ti...!
Quién sabe, si supieras
que nunca te he olvidado!
volviendo a tu pasado
te acordarás de mí...

Gerardo Matos Rodríguez

La Cumparsita

If you knew ...
that still within my soul
I keep that love
that I had for you ...!
Who knows, if you knew
that I never forgot you!
back to your past
you will remember me ...

Friends don't come anymore
not even to say hello,
No one comes to comfort me
in my affliction;
from the day you left
I have anguish in my chest;
said, woman what did you do
of my poor heart!

To the left parrot
not even the morning sun
looks out the window
like when you were here
and that companion dog
it didn't eat because your absence
when see me alone, the other day,
It also leave.

If you knew ...
that still within my soul
I keep that love
that I had for you ...!
Who knows, if you knew
that I never forgot you!
back to your past
you will remember me ...

Gerardo Matos Rodríguez
