Ada Falcón

Falcón was born in Buenos Aires in 1905. She started acting in theatre as a little girl of only 11 years old. She was known as “la Joyita Argentina” (the Little Argentinian Jewel).
In 1925, she made her first tango recordings as a soloist with Osvaldo Fresedo’s orchestra, for Victor Records. She was a mezzo-soprano, an unusual register at that times for female tango singers, most of whom were sopranos.
Falcón reached national and international fame while singing with the orchestra of Francisco Canaro. Between 1930 and 1942 she was at the peak of her artistic life: she recorded more than 200 songs, and became a wealthy artist. More about Ada.

Fragment of movie “Yo no Sé que me Han Hecho Tus Ojos” 2003

Yo no sé qué me han hecho tus ojos Vals

LYRICS by: Francisco Canaro
MUSIC by: Francisco Canaro

Spanish

Yo no se si es cariño el que siento,
yo no se si será una pasión,
sólo se que al no verte, una pena
va rondando por mi corazón…
Yo no se que me han hecho tus ojos
que al mirarme me matan de amor,
yo no se que me han hecho tus labios
que al besar mis labios, se olvida el dolor.

Tus ojos para mi
son luces de ilusión,
que alumbra la pasión
que albergo para ti.
Tus ojos son destellos
que van reflejando
ternura y amor.
Tus ojos son divinos
y me tienen preso
en su alrededor.

Tus ojos para mí
son el reflejo fiel
de un alma que al querer
querrá con frenesí.
Tus ojos para mí serán
la luz de mi camino
que con fe me guiarán
por un sendero
de esperanzas y esplendor
porque sus ojos son, mi amor!

Yo no se cuántas noches de insomnio
en tus ojos pensando pasé;
pero se que al dormirme una noche
con tus ojos pensando soñé…
Yo no se que me han hecho tus ojos
que me embrujan con su resplandor,
sólo se que yo llevo en el alma
tu imagen marcada con el fuego de amor.

Tus ojos para mí
son luces de ilusión,
que alumbran la pasión
que albergo para ti.
Tus ojos son destellos
que van reflejando
ternura y amor.
Tus ojos son divinos
y me tienen preso
en su alrededor.

Tus ojos para mí
son el reflejo fiel
de un alma que al querer
querrá con frenesí.
Tus ojos para mí serán
la luz de mi camino
que con fe me guiarán
por un sendero
de esperanzas y esplendor
porque tus ojos son, mi amor!


English

I don’t know if it’s love what I feel,
I don’t know if it could be a passion,
I only know that when I don’t see you,
through my heart, sorrow prowls…
I don’t know what your eyes have done to me
that just by glancing, they kill me with love,
I don’t know what your lips have done to me
that when they kiss mine, one forgets grief.

Your eyes for me,
are lights of illussion
that brighten the passion
that I keep for you.
Your eyes are sparkles
that go reflecting
tenderness and love.
Your eyes are divine
and they have me imprisoned
in their rim..

Your eyes, for me,
are the true reflection
of a soul that, when loving,
will love deliriously.
Your eyes, for me, will be
the light in my way
that, faithfully,
will guide me
by a path of hope and splendor,
because your eyes are my love!

I don’t know how many sleepless nights
i spent thnking of your eyes,
but I know that, one night, falling sleep
about your eyes I dreamed…
I don’t know what your eyes have done to me
that they bewitch me with their radiance,
I only know that I carry your image in my soul
engraved with fire of love!

Your eyes for me,
are lights of illussion
that brighten the passion
that I keep for you.
Your eyes are sparkles
that go reflecting
tenderness and love.
Your eyes are divine
and they have me imprisoned
in their contour.

Your eyes, for me,
are the true reflection
of a soul that, when loving,
will love deliriously.
Your eyes, for me, will be
the light in my way
that, faithfully,
will guide me
by a path of hope and splendor,
because your eyes are my love!
