My Yianni, why is your handkerchief so stained,
My dear Yianni, my brave young man?
It is stained from laboring in foreign lands,
In those cursed, forlorn places.
I washed it five times and fouled five rivers forever with its stain.

Γιάννη μου το, Γιάννη μου το, αϊντε
Γιάννη μου το μαντήλι σου, έλα
τι το ’χεις λερωμένο, βρε Γιαννή, Γιαννάκη μου
τι το ’χεις λερωμένο, βρε παλικαράκι μου

Το λέρωσε, το λέρωσε, αϊντε
το λέρωσε η ξενιτιά, έλα
τα έρημα τα ξένα, βρε Γιαννή, Γιαννάκη μου
τα έρημα τα ξένα, βρε παλικαράκι μου

Πέντε ποτά-, πέντε ποτά-, αϊντε
πέντε ποτάμια το ’πλενα (έπλυνα), έλα
και βάψαν και τα πέντε, βρε Γιαννή, Γιαννάκη μου
και βάψαν και τα πέντε, βρε παλικαράκι μου
