Ela eepne moo

Ela eepne moo, pare to
Ke ame seerianisse to
Stis polis tin Aya Sofia
Stis Chios ta perivolia
Ke yemisse toos korfoos too
Triandafeela ke rodha

"e" like in "red"
"ch" like in German "ich"
"dh" like in "the"

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