about

Traditional kalamatianos dance/song from the Peloponnese.

lyrics

I will fill in the blue sea and pave it with marble
So I might cross it and reunite with you.
Were but the sea, land, that I could walk over it.
Oh swallow, flying low, if you see my love, say hello.
South wind, blow ... and echo my voice.
Send greetings and well wishes to my child.


Τη θάλασσα τη γαλανή θα την (ε)χαλικώσω,
θα την (ε)στρώσω μάρμαρα να ‘ρθω να σ’ ανταμώσω,
θα την (ε)στρώσω μάρμαρα να ‘ρθω να σ’ ανταμώσω.

Ας ήταν το ριζάμενο κι ας ήταν να μπορούσα,
να ‘ταν η θάλασσα στεριά να την (ε)περπατούσα,
να ‘ταν η θάλασσα στεριά να την (ε)περπατούσα.

Χεληδονάκια και πουλιά που χαμηλοπετάτε,
αν δείτε την αγάπη μου να μου τη χαιρετάτε,
αν δείτε την αγάπη μου να μου τη χαιρετάτε.

Φύσα Μαϊστρουλάκι μου και πάρε τη φωνή μου,
να πας τα χαιρετίσματα που στέλνω στο παιδί μου,
να πας τα χαιρετίσματα που στέλνω στο παιδί μου.
