Angela Maria - Tango pra Teresa (English translation)

English translation

Tango for Teresa

Today, someone put on
A Gardel1 record
In the apartment next door
It made me feel so sad
 
It was all my beautiful past
My younger days coming
To the wall2 , telling me
To suffer
 
My life now is calm
There's a tango inside my soul
The old story of a love
That got stuck in time
 
Waiter, put the beer on the table
Bandoneon3, play again because tonight
Teresa will be mine and will dance
So I can dream
 
The cabaret lights
Are already off in me
The tango in the phonograph
Also has come to an end
 
It seems to tell me
That the night has got old
That it's time to remember
And cry
 
My life now is calm
There's a tango inside my soul
The old story of a love
That got stuck in time
 
Waiter, put the beer on the table
Bandoneon3, play again because tonight
Teresa will be mine and will dance
So I can dream
 
The cabaret lights
Are already off in me
The tango in the phonograph
Also has come to an end
 
It seems to tell me
That the night has got old
That it's time to remember
And cry
