The 4th Man Tango
-The Last Tanguero-
The story of this Russian beauty will long be told
...for no greater love story could ever unfold.
She left her Mother Russia in search of love and gold
"You must learn to tango," a wise woman said.
"You will find a new truth in this dance," the beautiful lady was told.
"How can the Tango reveal truth in a man?"
She met handsome tangueros from far and near.
The first tanguero stepped up to try his hand.
He danced his dance as best he could
The second tanguero stood up to take the floor
Then came the third tanguero who danced straight to her heart.
...but just when the connection felt so right
"That's it! No more!" ...and she hung up her shoes.
In time there came a 4th man to tango and the connection felt great.
She put on her shoes and they sparkled with light.
They held each other closely as the Tango wailed on
Whenever you see them you will hear their loving laughter

The Lady from Russia
...because of the connection, her smile and her eyes.
