LYRICS

I trata mas i kourelou
I hiliobalomeni
Olo tin ebaloname
K'olo 'tan ksilomeni.

          Chorus:
          Evira mia sta pania
          Evira dhio sto horio
          Evira tris sto spiti tis.

'An to'ksere i mana mou
Pos thouleva stin trata
Tha mou'stelne ta rouha mou
Ke tin palia mou vraka.

Pigame ke tralarame
Kato sta dhio litskaria
Egemisen i trata mas
Soupies ke kalamaria.

Pigame ke tralarame
Kato i sto dhia podhi
Psaria pola epiasame
Mazi ke 'na htapodhi

Tin trata mou tin poulisa
Is tin Thessaloniki
Ke yirisa stin mana mou
Me thihos metaliki.
