Transliteration

Vrexe vrexe Panaya moo

Vrexe vrexe Panaya moo
Kame cheeoneea ke nera
Na vrakhoon t'ambeleea mas
Ke ta pereevoleea mas
Na vrakhoon ke ta lemoneea
Na ta tromen ton cheemona

"e" as in "red"
"ch" like in German "ich"
"kh" like Spanish "j" or German "ch" in Bach

We apologize for any errors in the modernized version and welcome corrections. Please email us with any modifications.
