Hola mi gente! Today we are going to read and listen the famous tango song " Por una cabeza " by Carlos Gardel from Argentina. The name of the song in English is " By a head ". It is the most popular tango song in Spanish. The song is known for its instrumental in a lot of films like " Scent of a Woman " with Al Pacino and also the movie " Easy Virtue " . I must say that there is a movie that Carlos Gardel sings this song, the name is " Tango Bar (1935) " and a lot of people don't know that this song has lyrics and today we are going to translate.

I will be reading the song in Spanish very slowly and you will try to understand word by word. You will be learning some interesting words and new vocabulary and also you will be improving your listening skills in Spanish. I will translate the song in English and then read in Spanish again in a normal speed but explaining some words at the same time.. 

Here is the song by Carlos Gardel:

Por una cabeza, de un noble potrillo
Que justo en la raya, afloja al llegar
Y que al regresar, parece decir
No olvides, hermano
Vos sabes, no hay que jugar

Por una cabeza, metejón de un día
De aquella coqueta y risueña mujer
Que al jurar sonriendo el amor que está mintiendo
Quema en una hoguera
Todo mi querer

Por una cabeza, todas las locuras
Su boca que besa
Borra la tristeza
Calma la amargura

Por una cabeza
Si ella me olvida
Qué importa perderme
Mil veces la vida
Para qué vivir

Cuántos desengaños, por una cabeza
Yo juré mil veces no vuelvo a insistir
Pero si un mirar me hiere al pasar
Su boca de fuego
Otra vez quiero besar

Basta de carreras, se acabo la timba
Un final reñido ya no vuelvo a ver
Pero si algún pingo llega a ser fija el domingo
Yo me juego entero
Qué le voy a hacer

Por una cabeza, todas las locuras
Su boca que besa
Borra la tristeza
Calma la amargura

Por una cabeza
Si ella me olvida
Qué importa perderme
Mil veces la vida
Para qué vivir
