"La Calesita" lyrics

Llora la calesita
de la esquinita sombría
y hace sangrar las cosas
que fueron rosas un día…
Mozos de punta y hacha
y una muchacha que me quería;
tango varón y entero,
más orillero que el alma mía…
Sigue llorando el fango
y en la esquinita palpita
con su dolor de tango
la calesita…

La Calesita, is a milonga held outdoors on the grounds of the sports club "ObsBA" (time ago called "I.M.O.S.") which is in the Avenue Comodoro Rivadavia at number 1350. It is located in Nuñez, a suburb of Buenos Aires, near the 8000 of the "Liberatador" Avenue. The organizer is Julio Mendez, a tango dancer and teacher, who spends much of his time teaching in Europe.

La Calesita (The Carousel) is also a Tango song by Catulo Castillo and Mariano Mores, who were inspired in the old Carousel located lot of time ago in the square "1º de Mayo".

La Calesita is finally also a Tango step which defines a move in which the follower is drawn to lean forward balanced on one foot while the leader walks, forwards or backwards, in a tight circle around her.
