Can Someone Help Jog a Memory of a Song Sung in Greek School ?

I think it was some kind of political song the 2nd graders sang. It is from many years ago and the song went something like this (very loosely phonetic)…

Eme na zakou tharo zoe ros po i

Pia no ti zulia proi ollo proko pi

My Greek is pretty horrible, and I remember even then as we sang it, lots of people thought it didn’t make much senseā€¦ Does it sound like any old song you may have heard of? Any information would be great!

If anyone can help out with this song, please comment below or email me.

Thanks!

    Hi Lisa

    I saw this in your site. I don’t know the song but i tried to correct it phonetically and i think it is like that:

    Eme na zakou tharo zoe ros po i / im’ ena pedaki tharo zoero poli

    Pia no ti zulia proi ollo proko pi / piano ti doulia proi olo prokopi

    It doesn’t sound political. Rather like a children’s song. It means:

    I’m a very lively little kid
    I start working in the morning; a lot of diligence.

    I tried to find sth in the net but wasn’t lucky.
