Translation by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840 - 1893)

Tango vos, el mi pandero
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Tango vos, el mi pandero,
tango vos y pienso en al.

Si tu, pandero, supieses
mi dolor y le sintieses,
el sonido que hicieses
seria llorar mi mal.

Cuando taño este instrumento
es con fuerzsa de tormento,
por quitar del pensamiento
la memoria de este mal.

En mi corazon, Señores,
son continos los dolores,
los cantares son clamores:
tango vos y pienso en al.

Пандеро
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Ах, играй же мой пандеро, ах играй!
О любви я замечтал, о любви я замечтал.
Если б знал ты про терзанья,
про душевные страданья,
сердца тайные желанья,
ты б их в звуках выражал.
Я старался петь звончее,
в кастаньеты бью сильнее,
чтоб забыться поскорее,
чтобы горе заглушить.
Я пляшу смешно и дико,
чуть не рвется грудь от крика,
но терзанье так велико,
что его не заглушить.1

1 Rubinstein adds at the end a repetition of the first two lines, the first of which has been slightly modified: "Akh! Nu igraj, pandero, gromche, gromche!"
