Version en castellano English translation
Llegando la noche
recien te levantas
y sales ufano a buscar un beguen.
Lucis con orgullo tu estampa elegante
sentado muy muelle
en tu regia baque.

Paseas por Corrientes
paseas por Florida
te das una vida
mejor que un pacha.
De regios programas tenes a montones
Con clase y dinero
de todo tendras.

Pero yo se que metido
vivis penando un querer,
que queres hallar olvido
cambiando tanta mujer
Yo se que en las madrugadas
cuando las farras dejas,
sentis tu pecho oprimido
por un recuerdo querido
y te pones a llorar.

Con tanta aventura
con toda tu andanza
llevaste tu vida
tan solo al placer.
Con todo el dinero
que siempre has tenido
todos tus caprichos
lograstes vencer.

Pensar que ese brillo
que facil ostentas
no sabe la gente que es puro disfraz.
Tu orgullo de necio
muy bien los engaña
No quieres que nadie
lo sepa jamás.
At night fall
you're just getting out of bed
and go out proud looking for casual love.
You show off with pride your elegant appearance
seated very comfortable  in your magnificent car.

You stroll through Corrientes (Ave.)
you stroll through Florida (St.)
you live a life
that's better than a Persian king.
You have lots of smashing dates
With social status and money
you'll have everything.

But I know that withdrawn
you live suffering for a love,
that you want to forget
going from women to women.
I know that late in the night
when you are done with your binge,
you feel sick in your heart
by a dear memory
and start crying.

With so many affairs
with all your going around
you led your life
only to pleasure.
With all the money
that you've always had
all your whims
you managed to win.

To think that that distinction
that you so casually flaunt
people don't know that it is purely a disguise.
Your foolish pride
deceives them very well.
You don't want anybody
ever to know.
