Piraeus' Chlidren (Children who come from Pireaus) [ Ta pedia tou Pirea | Τα Παιδιά Του Πειραιά ]

English translation

Piraeus' Chlidren (Children who come from Pireaus)

Versions: #1#2
I am near my window and I am sending from there one, two and
three and four kisses
And they go until the port
One, and two, and three and four birds
How would I want to have one and two
And three and four children
And when they grow up they will be
Stalwart boys for Pireaus' grace
 
As much as I look for it
I can't find another port
To make me as crazy as Pireaus' port does
Which when night comes,
Fills with songs
And it changes its songs
It is becoming full with people
 
When I get out of my door
I love them all
And as I sleep at night
I know that, I know that
I will dream of him
I put jewel on my neck
And a, and a
And a bead for charm
Because at nights as I go to the port
I am waiting to find an unknown person
 
As much as I look for it
I can't find another port
To make me as crazy as Pireaus' port does
Which when night comes,
Fills with songs
And it changes its songs
It is becoming full with people
 
I would like so much to have one, and two, and three
and four children
My country, in which I was born
I never denied of you
 
Home, sweet home
My love
What if I travelled all over the world
I came back to you

Ta pedia tou Pirea | Τα Παιδιά Του Πειραιά

Aπ' το παράθυρό μου στέλνω
ένα δύο και τρία και τέσσερα φιλιά
που φτάνουν στο λιμάνι
ένα και δύο και τρία και τέσσερα πουλιά
 
Πώς ήθελα να είχα ένα και δύο
και τρία και τέσσερα παιδιά
που σαν θα μεγαλώσουν όλα

There is a very beautiful french version of this song(not a literal translation) named" Les enfants du Pyrée", performed by Dalida, at http://lyricstranslate.com/en/dalida-les-enfants-du-pir%C3%A9e-lyrics.html
