about

Traditional song from Epiros.

lyrics

Young lady, your face, round like the moon, daughter of the sun,
You enticed me to disown both mother and father for you.
Go and tell your mother to bear another like you,
To burn the hearts of others like you have burned mine.
Ah, black eyes you have, daughter. You are from Zagori.
I cannot continue. Love is torture. My back is to the wall.
With luck, our paths will cross.

Κόρη φεγγαροπρόσωπη, του ήλιου θυγατέρα αμάν αμάν
Αμάν άμαν αχ για σένα νε

Συ μ' έκαμες κι αρνήθηκα και μάνα και πατέρα αμάν αμάν
Αμάν άμαν αχ για σένα νε

Σύρε να πεις της μάνας σου να κάμει κι άλλη γέννα αμάν αμάν
Αμάν άμαν αχ για σένα νε

Να κάψει κι αλλωνών καρδιές, πώς έκαψε κι εμένα αμάν αμάν
Αμάν άμαν αχ για σένα νε

Αχ μαύρα μάτια που ΄χεις κόρη
φαίνετ' είσαι απ' το Ζαγόρι

Έρχομαι το φράχτη φράχτη
βάσανα που' χεις αγάπη

Έρχομαι τον τοίχο τοίχο
χαλασιά σ' κι αν σε πετύχω.
