Buenos Aires Silhouette

When you go by walking through the streets,
tapping your heels upon the sidewalk
you set the beat of the melodious lilt
of a playful milonga from the street.
 
And in your to-and-fro one'd think you were dancing to it
it's no matter if people look, let whomever look
because you carry with you the haughty self-respect
and the majestic sway of girls from Buenos Aires.
 
Little creole evening, of pristine skies
embroidered by clouds; you wear in your hair
the Argentine ardonement that is your pride
And how much sun there is in those eyes of yours!
 
The admiring compliments that the young men give you;
they are like flowers offered every step you take
you pick them up and tie them to your hair,
next to the adornement you use on your head.
 
Your body speaks of haughtiness and your rhythm
and your provocative heels upon the sidewalk
I am the Buenos Aires spirit turned into a silhouette
and they crown you the most good-looking girl, the girl who's most like Buenos Aires.
 
Little creole evening, of pristine skies
embroidered by clouds; you wear in your hair
the Argentine ardonement that is your pride
And how much sun there is in those eyes of yours!
 
Thanks!
