Ο κυρ-Θάνος πέθανε παραπονεμένος
Mister Thanos died, under complain
ώρα δυο στο καπηλειό του Χατζηθωμά.
at 2 o' clock in Chatzithomas' tavern
Τελευταία πέρναγε φτώχειες ο καημένος
Lately, the poor man was facing financila difficulties
κι είχε βάλει ενέχυρο και τον μπαγλαμά.
and he had put in pledge even his baglama
Τον μπαγλαμά, τ' αδέρφι του
The baglama, his own brother
που τού 'φτιαχνε το κέφι του
the one that could cheer him up
ενέχυρο τον έδωσε
put it in pledge
και ο κυρ-Θάνος έσβησε.
and so mister Thanos died.
Κάποιος αν του πλήρωνε κάτι λίγα χρέη
If there was somenone, to pay for him, some small debts
θα 'χε τ' οργανάκι του, θα 'ταν στη ζωή.
he would have had his little instrument, he would have been alive
Μα κανείς δεν ρώτησε, τάχα γιατί κλαίει.
But noone asked, what's the reason he was crying
Τον καημό του αλλουνού ποιος τον εννοεί;
Which is the one to understand somebody's suffering?
Notice: In the following picture you can take a look at Baglamas and Bouzouki
"Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to?
You will never find that life for which you are looking.
When the gods created man they allotted to him death,
but life they retained in their own keeping"
