Hi,
Could anyone help me in the translation of this traditional Greek song into English please?
Many thanks

Μωρή κοντούλα λεμονιά
Μωρή κοντού-, μωρή κοντούλα λεμονιά
με τα πολλά λεμό-, λεμόνια.
Βησσανιώτισσα
σε φίλησα κι αρρώστησα
και το γιατρό δεν φώναξα.
Πότε μικρή, πότε μικρή μεγάλωσες
κι έγινες για στεφά-, στεφάνι;
Βησσανιώτισσα...
Χαμήλωσε, χαμήλωσε τους κλώνους σου
να κόψω ένα λεμό-, λεμόνι.
Βησσανιώτισσα...
Για να το στί-, για να το στύψω, να το πιω
να μου διαβούν οι πό-, οι πόνοι.
Βησσανιώτισσα...

Hi,
Thank you so much... For the perfect translation and for giving me the feeling of being a member of the great LT community.
This traditional song was the song his family and friend sang in Theo Angelopoulos’s funeral, which was held in Athens. He was my favorite director, therefore I wanted to learn the meaning of this song. Many thanks again...
