THALASSAKI

Greek Folk Music

LYRICS:

Thalassa, thalassa, tous
Thalassinous, thalassaki mou
Mi tous thalassodernis,
Thalassonoume
Yia sena ksimeronoume.

Thalassa kialmiro nero
Na se ksehaso den boro.

Rodostamo, rodostamo
Na ginese, och! aman, aman,
Tin porta tous na renis
Thalassaki mou,
Ke fere to poulaki mou.

REFRAIN

Thalassa, thalassa, pou
Ton epnikses, och! aman, aman,
Tis kopellias ton andra,
Thalassaki mou,
Ke fere to poulaki mou.

REFRAIN

Ki kopellia, ki kopellia
Ine mikri, och! aman, aman,
Ke den tis pan ta mavra,
Thalassaki mou,
Ke fere to poulaki mou.

TRANSLATION:

Sea, sea, the
sea-faring ones , my little sea
Do not be turbulent for them.
We become sea-bound;
for you, we stay awake.

Sea and salt water, I am unable to forget you.

Rose water, rose water
will you become, oh! alas, alas,
in order to sprinkle their door,
my little sea,
and to bring my little bird to me.

Sea, sea which
has drowned, oh! alas, alas,
the young girl’s girl’s husband,
my little sea,
and bring my little bird to me.

And the girl, and the girl
is young, oh! alas, alas,
and black, does not become her,
my little sea,
and bring my little bird to me.
