lyrics

(english translation below)

Το πρωί ξυπνά και ζητά φιλιά
λάγνες αγκαλιές με τις μυγδαλιές
Για την ευωδιά σφίγγει τη ροδιά
παίρνει αναπνοή απ’ τη βρεγμένη γη

Τραγουδάει σιγά σαν να κελαϊδά
λόγια της αυγής της βαθιάς πηγής
Μόνος στο σχονί χορεύει ακροβατεί
γυμνός ισορροπεί, ερωτοτροπεί
Είναι αυτός τρελλός, μάγος Βραχμανός
ή όλοι εμείς χαζοί, μαγκούφηδες σκυφτοί
Άνεμε σκαστέ κούρσεψε και με
στρόβιλος μουρλός να γυρίσω αλλιώς

Να τον βρω εκεί που πετούν αητοί
ήλιος να φιλά τα χρυσά μαλιά

=====

At daylight he rouses, asking for a kiss
And amorous cuddles with the almond trees
For a pleasant scent, the pomegranate he clasps
And from the wet soil, the sweet air he gasps

Softly he sings, chirping like a bird
The words of dawn, and of the deep spring
Alone he walks the tightrope
He dances and he twists
Naked he poises, flirting in the mist

Either he is a mad, Brahmin wizard,
Or we’re all mindless, solitary beasts
Powerful wind, take me with thee
I want to spin as a crazy whirlwind

To find him there where the eagles fly
Where the sun kisses his golden hair in the sky
