This popular song uses  the rhythm of the pasodoble which was of Spanish origin.  The dance was very popular at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries and was played mainly in bands called canoneros.  The text depicts the society of the time when the young maids and men liked to buy imported clothes, but did not have enough money to pay for them.
