    Mihalis Hatzigiannis – Parakseni giorti

    Ola kala
    Everything’s fine


    Ola kala ki ola orea
    Everything is fine and beautiful
    htes isoun m’ alone parea
    yesterday you were with someone else
    ke pou sokaki na tragoudisis
    and where (is) a street to song
    den epitreponte I anamnisis
    memories aren’t allowed

    Mila siga ke mi fonazis
    Speak calmly and don’t shout
    ime koutos ke me tromazis
    I’m silly and you scare me
    de thelo kosmo ke fasaria
    I don’t want people and noise
    avrio beno stin anergia
    tomorrow I go into unemployment

    Eho psihi, den eho vraho
    I have soul, not a rock
    pali me afises monaho
    you left me alone again
    ke mia simea s’ ena balcony
    and a flag on a balcony
    allazi hromata ke me skotoni
    changes colours and it kills me

    Ola kala ki ola orea
    Everything is fine and beautiful
    htes isoun m’ alone parea
    yesterday you were with someone else
    ke pou sokaki na tragoudisis
    and where (is) a street to song
    den epitreponte I anamnisis
    memories aren’t allowed
    Άνθρωποι τύχης είδωλον επλάσαντο, πρόφασιν ιδίης αβουλίης.

    Hi! I just found the lyrics of this... in Greek


    Εσύ φιγούρα καραβίσια
    Και εγώ μια θάλασσα που σε κυκλώνει
    Να μη μ' αφήνεις μόνη

    Εσύ ανοίγεις τα πανιά
    Και εγώ την αγκαλιά μου να αρμενίζεις
    Να φεύγεις να γυρίζεις

    Μες το Ζεϊμπέκικο κορμί σου
    Ταξιδεύεις όλα εκείνα που αγαπώ
    Κύμα η ψυχή μου και θυμήσου
    Για δρόμο δίχως γυρισμό
    ένα ταξίδι είμαι και εγώ
    Μες το Ζεϊμπέκικο κορμί σου

    Εσύ ανοίγεσαι βαθιά
    Και βρέχω χίλια χάδια στο σκαρί σου
    Σαν σπάω στο φιλί σου

    Τους καιρούς δεν τους φοβάσαι
    Σε λιμάνια δεν κοιμάσαι
    Έχεις λύσει τα σχοινιά
    Άγριο πράγμα η ομορφιά

    Μες το Ζεϊμπέκικο

    -----------------------

    and Greeklish

    Esi figoura karabisia
    Kai ego mia thalassa pou se kyklonei
    Na mi m' afineis moni

    Esi anoigeis ta pania
    Kai ego tin agkalia mou na armenizeis
    Na feygeis na gyrizeis


    Mes to Zeimpekiko kormi sou
    Taksideyeis ola ekeina pou agapo
    Kyma i psyhi moy kai thymisou
    Gia dromo dihos gyrismo
    ena taksidi eimai kai ego
    Mes to Zeimpekiko kormi sou



    Esi anoigesai bathia
    Kai breho hilia hadia sto skari sou
    San spao sto fili sou


    Tous kairoys den tous fobasai
    Se limania den koimasai
    Eheis lysei ta shoinia
    Agrio pragma i omorfia
    Mes to Zeimpekiko

    Poy na 'sai tora;



    Have courage Anna,
    fight with time
    My Anna, with different habits
    different moves
    You had very good manners
    It was obvious that you were coming from another world
    But you were doing everything you could
    in order not to show it
    You didn't contemn poorness
    but it didn't attract you as well
    Everything in you was different
    Your room with the rare objects
    the letters, the gifts
    You bet that you had a better taste than mine!
    You were coming to find me
    My bed, your breast...
    Anna, little dirty lady
    And outside (down) the windows, a wet road
    the sound of the train, the nightfall
    And my room, Anna
    hanged in the air
    like an orange
    Have courage Anna

    Who knows where you are now
    who knows how you are doing
    Who knows where you are now. How you can do
    without having what you love
    and without loving what you have...

    You know Anna, for the two of us,
    it was written (in the destiny) to meet
    What could others know? How could they know?
    My coetaneous, little lover
    Do you remember? Millions of moments
    moments that become fewer and fewer
    as some foray them
    in front of our eyes, every day
    Hopelessly I fight to keep them, hopelessly (! again)
    they trickle slow and they go
    towards the big sea
    So many years have passed
    I don't wear my student jacket anymore
    and I can hardly get used
    to this well needled costume
    I don't contemn money
    but it doesn't attract me so much
    .........................

    Tonight I will visit your first dream
    Don't get old Anna, don't get old
    Lie to your husband
    Rip the invitation, cancel the dinner
    Touch me, like that time, with your knee
    under the table
    Tonight, Anna
    In the best hotel
    Tonight
    In your first dream
    have courage Anna

    Who knows where you are now
    who knows how you are doing
    Who knows where you are now. How you can do
    without having what you love
    and without loving what you have...

    Don't get old Anna, don't get old
    because I won't have anybody and anything
    to keep me young
    I am alone, still insisting here
    although it has again started to rain
    as it always rains in the islands
    during October
    Remember?
    A sea made of lead and a sky of pines
    Remote, mixed voices
    The voice of the mother, of the friend, of the daughter,
    of the brother, of the lover
    of the siren of the ship
    White clothes, removed quickly
    just before the rain
    The light was lost with them
    A short walk
    still...there. Next to the sea
    And then...the end, the end
    Have courage Anna

    Who knows where you are now...

    To Zeimpekiko kormi sou
    The zeibekiko of your body


    Esi figoura karavisia
    You, a figure of ship
    Ke ego mia thalassa pou se kikloni
    And I, a sea that surrounds you
    Na mi m' afinis moni
    In order not to leave me alone

    Esi anigis ta pania
    You open the sails
    Ki ego tin agkalia mou na armenizis
    And I (open) my embrace for you to sail in ti
    Na feygeis na gyrizeis
    To go away and to return

    Mes to Zeimpekiko kormi sou
    In the zeibekiko of your body
    Taksidevis ola ekina pou agapo
    You travel all those that I love
    Kima i psihi mou ke thimisou
    My soul is wave and remember
    Gia dromo dihos girismo
    For a road without return
    ena taksidi ime ki ego
    I’m a travel too
    Mes to Zeimpekiko kormi sou
    In the zeibekiko of your body

    Esi anigese vathia
    You go to deep seas
    Ke vreho hilia hadia sto skari sou
    And I wet thousand caresses on your ship
    San spao sto fili sou
    When I break to your kiss

    Tous kairous den tous fobasai
    You’re not afraid of weather
    Se limania den kimase
    You don’t sleep to the ports
    Ehis lisi ta shinia
    You have untied the ropes
    Agrio pragma i omorfia
    Beauty is a wild thing
    Mes to Zeimpekiko
    In zeibekiko
    Άνθρωποι τύχης είδωλον επλάσαντο, πρόφασιν ιδίης αβουλίης.

    Teleftea fora
    Last time


    I teleftea mas fora
    Our last time (is)
    Doro Theou i simfora
    A gift from God or disaster
    De mou meni keros na se piso
    There isn’t time left to convince you
    Ke to soma afto perno piso
    And this body I take it back
    Stin adia thesi mou that vris
    In my empty position you’ll find
    Ena simioma vrohis
    A note of rain
    Ma sti thiela otan ksipnisis
    But when you wake up in the storm
    Na me dis ksana mi zitisis
    Don’t ask to see me again

    Se krato sfihta sta skotina
    I hold you tight in the dark
    Teleftea fora
    For the last time
    De tha po to s' agapo ksana
    I won’t say “I love you” again
    Tora tipota pia
    Now nothing more
    Se krato sfihta sta skotina
    I hold you tight in the dark
    Teleftea fora
    For the last time
    Se kito ke kati me pona
    I look at you and something hurts me
    Teleftea fora
    For the last time

    Pente ke misi
    It’s five thirty
    Se rotao siopila
    I ask you silently
    Pos ginan kommatia ekina ta filia
    How did these kisses break into pieces
    Pente ke misi
    It’s five thirty
    Onira kitas
    You watch dreams
    Teliose, teliose t' oniro gia mas
    It’s over, it’s over the dream for us

    Tin teleftea mas fora
    Our last time
    Vourkoni kapia diafora
    Some difference is weeping it
    Imoun moni ke to veveoni
    I was alone and it can assure it
    Dakri ipografi sto sentoni
    Tear, signature on the sheet
    Edo afino tin kardia
    I leave the heart here
    Sto maksilari ta klidia
    On the pillow the keys
    Dio filia sto hali na petaksis
    Throw two kisses on the carpet
    Ma de tha me vris, min psaksis
    But you won’t find me, don’t look for me
    Άνθρωποι τύχης είδωλον επλάσαντο, πρόφασιν ιδίης αβουλίης.

    Many thanks for your contribution. I send you kisses and best wishes for next year, Maria mou!

    P.S. How could you translate/explain "zeibekiko" ? Strong? Courageous? It's probably difficult to translate...

    Zeibekiko is a song that is written in 9/8 rythm.

    It's name comes from "zeibekis". Zeibekis was called a policeman or soldier of Ottoman empire that was Greek and Turks made him Muslim at his childhood - by force.

    According to a documentary i've watched recently, it was a dance of war. The dancer had his head facing down and his body ALWAYS stuck to earth (it meant that the ground gives the strength), but there were a few times during the song that dancer were looking high and opening his hands wide (it meant that he already had enough energy to get into the fight).

    It's the only dance that has NO steps, and nowadays represents the dance of a very sad man (that's why, it's extremely difficult to find a zeibekiko with happy lyrics).

    Finally i have to say that you can't dance zeibekiko (decently) anytime, it's a dance that you have to feel that music and lyrics suits you at that particular moment.

    I hope i helped...

    I'm not impressed if you make the other girls shiver
    I'm not impressed if they recognise you wherever you go
    nor if it is that you are the primeminister the very same
    or if you might be (Dionisis) Shoinas

    because you dont have... because you dont have...

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you
    oh oh oh... oh oh oh...

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you
    oh oh oh... oh oh oh...

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you

    I'm not impressed if you have lots of stength
    and if you have influence with the governors
    I'm not impressed if every night you go with a different girl
    and company of two mates

    I'm not impressed if an name in the city center
    and have strong wise investments
    I'm not impressed if you have toned arm muscles
    and an American Express card

    Since something is missing from you
    that I want to find
    but you dont have it at all
    and I am tired with you
    All the men the same facade
    pulling stars from the sky

    but noone has it
    that which I repeatedly ask for

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you
    oh oh oh... oh oh oh...

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you
    oh oh oh... oh oh oh...

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you

    that something, that something, that something,

    that something, that something, that something,

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you
    oh oh oh... oh oh oh...

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you
    oh oh oh... oh oh oh...

    that something that I want
    that will make me mad and want you

    that something, that something, that something,
    that something, that something, that something,
    that something, that something, that something,
    that something,

    hhe....
