The rex public [ O Afentis Laos (Ο Αφέντης λαός) ]

Tradução para Inglês

The rex public

We’re the ones struggling for years and years
for a porch, and a shack in Kokkinia*;
we’re the ones curing the swallows
and the sparrows frozen by the blizzard
We’re the rex public
we’re the light of the world
we’re the salt of the Earth
as Christ put it
Let the thunderbolt flash and rumble
let the ocean froth and rage
we are the river of gold
that flows, that flows always forth
We carried a cross on our shoulders
we watered the soil you step on
we paved new paths
for you to be able to walk free
(Repeat 2nd-3rd-3rd-2nd-3rd verses)

O Afentis Laos (Ο Αφέντης λαός)

Εμείς παλεύουμε χρόνια και χρόνια
για μια αυλή, για μια γωνιά στην Κοκκινιάˑ
εμείς γιατρεύουμε τα χελιδόνια
και τα σπουργίτια που παγώνουν στο χιονιά
Εμείς είμαστε ο αφέντης λαός,
εμείς είμαστε του κόσμου το φως,
εμείς είμαστε τ' αλάτι της γης
