Trasnochando, como todo calavera 
que no ve lo que le espera 
que no sabe donde va,
rechazaba, tus consejos buen amigo, 
casi fuimos enemigos 
por decirme la verdad. 
Siempre fueron, mis mejores compañeros 
los muchachos milongueros, 
jugadores y algo mas; 
y con ellos, noche a noche derrochaba 
entre copas, baile y farras 
esta vida que se va. 

Trasnochando conoci 
el nombre que vos sabes, 
no quisiera repetir 
lo que anoche te conte. 
Todo todo lo perdi, 
solo de ella conserve 
esa foto que hay alli 
y que ya no quiero ver. 
Vos que todo lo sabes 
manana cuando venis 
esa foto la guardas 
la tiras o la rompes. 
Para mi lo mismo da, 
vos hace lo que queres 
no la quiero mas mirar 
ni pensar lo que ella fue.

Staying up all night , like a hollow-eyed skull
that does not see what's ahead
that does not know where he goes,
I rejected your advice good friend,
we almost were enemies
for you telling me the truth.
My best companions always were
the milongueros boys,
the gamblers and something else;
and with them, night after night I wasted ,
between drinks, dances and parties,
this life that is going away.

Staying up all night I met
the name that you know,
I would not want to repeat 
what I told you last night.
I lost everything,
I only kept of her
that photo over there
that I no longer want to see.
You who knows it all,
when you come back tomorrow
keep that photo,
throw it away or tear it apart.
To me it is the same,
you do what you want
I don't want to see her anymore
nor to think about who she was.
