about

Traditional syngathistos dance/song from Greek Thrace.

lyrics

My dear mother, I was walking in the foreign lands
And spied the beautiful women.
I spied the girls with their laughter and caresses.
The young lady dressed in sea blue captured my heart.
But, I cannot entice her to hold my hand.

Γω στα ξε-, καλή μου μάνα, γω στα ξένα περπατούσα
Γω στα ξένα περπατούσα, τς όμορφες παρατηρούσα

Όλα τα, καλή μου μάνα, όλα τα κορίτσια τα 'ηδα
Όλα τα κορίτσια τα 'ηδα, με τα γέλια και τα χάδια

Μια γαλα-, καλή μου μάνα, μια γαλαζιοφορεμένη
Μια γαλαζιοφορεμένη, την καρδιά μου έχει καμένη

Δεν μπορώ, καλή μου μάνα, δεν μπορώ να τη γελάσω
Δεν μπορώ να τη γελάσω, το χεράκι της να πιάσω
