My man is leaving (Andra mou pai)


Andra mou pai

Τέλω να μπριακεφτώ να μη πενσέφσω
να κλάφσω τσαι να γελάσω τέλω αρτε βράι.
Μα μάλι' αράτζια έβο ε' να κανταλίσω
στο φέγγο ε' να φωνάσω ο άντρα μου πάει,
ο άντρα μου πάει, ο άντρα μου πάει!
E οι αντρώποι στε μας πάνε στε ταράσσουνε
ντ'άρτει καλοί ους τωρούμε του σ'ένα χρόνου.
΄Ετο ε ζωή μα ε του, ε ζωή Κριστέ μου;
Μα πα τσαι στη Γκερμάνια κλαίοντα μα πόνο,
κλαίοντα μα πόνο, κλαίοντα μα πόνο!
-Τάτα γιατί εν να πάει, πε μα γιατί;
-Γιατί έτο έ'ναι ε ζωή μαρά παιδία
ο τεκούντη πολεμά τσε 'τρώνει να
λιπαριάσει ου πατρούνου μου τη φατία,
μου τη φατία, μου τη φατία!
Στε 'κούω τη μπάντα τσαι στε 'κούω ιττώ σόνο.
Στέω ετού μα σα τσαι στε, πένσεω στο τρένο.
Πένσεω στο σκοτεινό τσι τη μινιέρα
που πολεμώντα ετσεί πεθαίνει ο γένο.
πεθαίνει ο γένο, πεθαίνει ο γένο!

Telo na mbriakeftò na mi' ppensefso
na klafso ce na jelaso telo arte vrài;
ma mali rràggia evò e' nna kantalis

o andra mu pai! o andra mu pai!
E antròpi ste' mas pane, ste' ttaràssune!
N'arti kalì 'us torùme ettù s'ena chrono!

Mas pa' 'cì sti Germania klèonta ma pono,

-Tata, jatì e' nna pai? Pemma, jatì
-Jatì tui ene e zoì, mara pedìa:
O ttechùddhi polemà ce tronni

-Stekuo ti banda ce stekuo itto sono,

penseo sto skotinò ci ti miniera
pu polemònta ecì peseni o jeno,
peseni o jeno, peseni o jeno!

My man is leaving

I want to get drunk so I won’t think about it,
I want to cry and laugh this very night,
to sing with a a lot of rage
to shout to the moon: my man is leaving
my man is leaving, my man is leaving
Our men are leaving and going away
and if all goes well, we’ll meet in a year.
This is our life, sweet Jesus,
they're going to Germany crying and suffering
crying and suffering, crying and suffering
Daddy why do you have to go? Tell me why
Because that’s life, poor little children,
the poor guy is working and sweating
to fatten his bosses with his labour
with his labour, with his labour
I’m hearing the band, I’m hearing the music
I’m here with you but I pay heed to the train too
I’m thinking about the dark mine
by working there people are dying
people are dying, people are dying
