Petros Gaitanos: Oso poulietai to fili

Ena karabi apo tin Xo me tis barkoules tou tis dio

Ena karabi apo tin Xo me tis barkoules tou tis dio

One ship from Ko with its two little boat

sstin Samo pige kai arakse kai ekatse kai logariase

went to Samos and anchored and sat down and evaluated

stin Samo pige kai arakse kai ekatse kai logariaseoso poulietai to fili stin disi stin anatoli

how much does a kiss cost in the west and in the eas

toso poulietai to fili stin disi stin anatoli tis pandremeneis tessera, tis xeiras dekatessera

the married’s four, the widow’s fourteen

 tis pandremeneis tessera, tis xeiras dekatesseratis lefthereis einai fthino to perneis me to xorato

the single’s is cheap, you take with little coinstis lefthereis einai fthino to perneis me to xorato 

kai ean se filisi mia fora allou trexei na brei xara

and if she kisses you once she goes somewhere else to get happy

kai ean se filisi mia fora allou trexei na brei xara

kai afou ksekinisane ton kosmo kai ean girisaneand once we’ve started and turned around the world

kai afou ksekinisamn ton kosmo kai ean girisane san tou nisiu tous ta filia allou den brikan pouthena

like their island’s kisses they didn’t find anywhere else

san tou nisiu tous ta filia allou den brikan pouthena
