Lyrics

Spanish: Zorro plateado

Zorro plateao,
te defendés y ya tenés
cuarenta y cinco y un quemao.
Zorro plateao, todavía tallás
y trabajás de enamorao.
Zorro plateao,
si hay que correr en el campito del amor
de punta a punta, vos ganás.
Parecés el negro Acosta
por lo bien que te apilás.

Si vas siguiendo un tango rezongón
con una piba taura pa'bailar,
porque te sobra fibra y corazón,
rendida en tus brazos la llevás...
Y así bebiendo el último compás
del tango que se acaba en el salón,
zorro plateado, vas mintiendo otra ilusión...

Zorro plateado,
conozco bien la causa porque llegaste a solterón.
Zorro plateado, por un querer
hoy ha cerrado tu corazón...
Pero pa' vos
la vida está brindándote
siempre la última ilusión...
¡Zorro plateado!
¡Aunque también por dentro
vos llevés tu procesión!

English: Silver Fox

Silver fox,
you hold your own and you’re already
forty-five and a bit.
Silver fox, you still
and work as a man in love...
Silver fox,
if one must run the field of love
from edge to edge, you win.
You look like the “negro” Acosta
because of the way you apilás.

If you go on following a grumbling tango
with a girl who’s good at dancing,
because you have fiber and heart to spare,
you take her surrendered in your arms.
And thus, drinking the last beat
of the tango that ends in the room,
silver fox, you’re lying another illusion...

Silver fox,
I know well the cause you got to be a confirmed bachelor.
Silver fox, because of a love
your heart is locked today.
But to you,
life’s giving
always the last illusion.
Silver fox!
Even though inside
you carry your own procession!
