Con el codo en la mesa mugrienta
Y la vista clavada en un sueo,
Piensa el tano Domingo Polenta
En el drama de su inmigracin.

Y en la sucia cantina que canta
La nostalgia del viejo paese
Desafina su ronca garganta
Ya curtida de vino carlon.

E...! La Violeta, la va, la va, la va...
La va sul campo che lei si sognaba
Ch'era su gigin, que guardandola staba...
El tambin busca su soado bien
Desde aquel dia, tan lejano ya,
Que con su carga de ilusin saliera.

Como La Violeta que la va...la va...
Canzoneta de pago lejano
Que idealiza la sucia taberna
Y que brilla en los ojos del tano
Con la perla de algun lagrimon.

La aprendio cuando vino con otros
Encerrado en la panza de un buque,
Y es con ella, metiendo batuque,
Que consuela su desilusin.
