Two traditional baidouska songs from Greek Thrace.


Mia Kali Gitonopoula:

The girl next door—beautiful and elegant.
How my heart burns for her.
As she passes through my garden,
The flowers shrivel and my senses flee.
With concealed desire, I admire her and wilt from love.

Barba Kyriakos:

It's how it is, Uncle Kiryiakou,
You don't smash the eggs,
You crack 'em and fry 'em.
He's off early to plow the fields
But has forgotten his plow at home ...

Μιά καλή γειτονοπούλα:

Μιά καλή γειτονοπούλα,
όμορφη κι αρχοντοπούλα, μ' έχει κάψει τήν καρδούλα

Στό μπαχτσέ μου μπαίνει βγαίνει
τά λουλούδια μέ μαραίνει καί τά λογικά μού παίρνει

Στά κρυφά τήν καμαρώνω,
τόν καϋμό μ' δέν φανερώνω κι άπ' αγάπη μαραζώνω


Έτσ’ είνι μπάρμπα-Κυργιάκου, ντίλι-ντίλι μαυρομάτα μου
Τά αὺγά δέν τ’ ὰλωνίζουν
τά τσακί’ν’ τά τιγανίζουν

Σηκώνεται ταχειά-ταχειά , ντίλι-ντίλι μαυρομάτα μου
Στού χουράφι πάει να ’ργώσει
τού ὰλέτρι σπίτ’ τ’ ὰστόϊσι
