LAVRENTIS MAXAIRITSAS AX ELLADA S' AGAPW LYRICS

Best wishes to the Greek who forgets
and in the middle of Chicago lives in freedom
the one who does not know and does not love
- are you sure it isn't your fault as well, miserable wretch? -
and in Athens too, he lives in exile.

Ach, Greece, I love you
and deeply thank you,
because you taught me and I know
how to go on breathing wherever I happen to be
to die wherever I happen to step,
and not endure you.

Ach, Greece, let me tell you,
before you crow like a cock,
you deny me thirteen times.
You push me around, you bully me,
you kick me like a stray dog,
and you hang yourself above me.

The sweetest home
is the heart
- Odysseas, come back to me! -
whose holy soil
is pain and joy

Each single one is one [alone]
in his boundary of pain
and I am just a someone
who takes you for a walk.

Ach, Greece, I love you
and deeply thank you,
because you taught me and I know
how to go on breathing wherever I happen to be
to die wherever I happen to step,
and not endure you.

Ach, Greece, let me tell you,
before you crow like a cock,
you deny me thirteen times.
You push me around, you bully me,
you kick me like a stray dog,
and you hang yourself above me.
