Η Μπαμπέσα
(στίχοι+μουσική: Α. Αντωνίου)

Μου φέρθηκες μπαμπέσικα σαν να 'σουν κάποια άλλη, μου έχωσες βαθιά τη μαχαιριά
Πισώπλατα με κάρφωσες σαν έβλεπα απ' την άλλη, δεν έχεις στο θεό σου ταπεινιά

Σβήνω σβήνω δεν βαστάω ντέρτι είναι ριζικό
το κρασί κι αν το ρουφάω δεν υπάρχει γιατρικό

Σαν έφυγα την σκάρωσες καλά την μπαμπεσιά σου το άλλοθι σκαρφίστηκες καιρό
Τον πήρες τον ξενάγησες τον έβαλες κοντά σου κ' έριξες την αγάπη στο μετρό

Να ξέρεις πως η εκδίκηση δεν σβήνει το φαρμάκι που πότισες τα στήθια μου μικρή
Μ' έριξες με τσαλάκωσες με γέμισες σαράκι, κάθε γουλιά μου είναι πια πικρή

--------------
Bambessa
(lyrics+music: A. Antoniou)

You deceived me as if you were someone else
You stuck the knife in too deep
You backstabbed me when I was looking the other way
You don’t have any humility

I’m fading away, I’m fainting, I can’t hold on
It’s an everlasting longing
I take down the wine, but there’s no cure

You schemed away your treachery, right after I was gone
You planned your alibi some time ago
You took him and showed him around, you drew him close to you
And you threw love on the rails

You know that revenge won’t wipe out the poison
That you poured into my chest, my little one
You brought me down, you crushed me, you plagued me
Every sip I take is now bitter
