about

Two traditional tsamikos dance/songs from the Peloponnese.

lyrics

Papa Lambrenas:

In the priest's garden people are gathering.
Do they come because his poor wife is sick and dying?
A tall thin girl is getting married to a gallant young man.

Itia:

Willow, the fragrance of your blossoms intoxicate me.
Tall willow in the creek, I swear my love to you.
Oh my willow, bend lower and let me pluck a blossom.

Παπαλάμπρενα:

Στου ΠαπαΛά-ΠαπαΛάμπρενα
Στου ΠαπαΛάμπρου την αυλή
Κόσμος είναι μαζεμένοι
ΠαπαΛάμπρενα καημένη

Μην ο παπάς ΠαπαΛάμπρενα
Μην ο παπάς είναι άρρωστος
Και η παπαδιά πεθαίνει
ΠαπαΛάμπρενα καημένη

Μια λυγερή παπαλάμπρενα
Μια λυγερή παντρεύεται
δεν και παίρνει 'να λεβέντη
παπαλάμπραινα καημένη

Ιτιά:

Ιτιά, ιτιά λουλουδιασμένη,
πώς μοσχο-βολάς καημένη

Ιτιά, ιτιά μέσα στο ρέμα,
πως σ’ αγαπώ δεν είναι ψέμα

Ιτιά μου σε παρακαλώ,
σκύψε να κόψω τον ανθό
