Mother Greece (Mana mou ellas)

English translation

Mother Greece

I have no home to go back to
Nor a bed to sleep with
I have no street, nor no neighborhood
In which to walk, on the first of May
 
Those fake and grand words
You fed me with your mother's milk
But now that the snakes are awake
You're wearing your ancient adornments
And you never weep, Mother Greece
Though you sell your children into slavery
 
Those fake and grand words
You fed me with your mother's milk
But when I was talking to my Fate
You were dressed in your ancient finery
And you took me to the market, you gypsy monkey
Greece, Greece, mother of suffering
 
Those fake and grand words
You fed me with your mother's milk
But now that the fire rages again
You look at your ancient beauty
And in the world's arena, mother Greece
You always carry the same lie
