Frankosyriani
by Markos Vamvakaris.

Markos Vamvakaris, Rembetika singer-composerWhat a burst of flame I have in my heart,
As if you had cast a spell on me,
Sweet Frankosyriani,
As if you had cast a spell on me
Sweet Frankosyriani.

I will come to meet you again on the shore,
Id like you to fill me with caresses and kisses.
Id like you to fill me with caresses and kisses.

Im coming to take you to Finika, Parakopi,
Galitsa and Delagratsia,
Even if I get a heart attack.
Galitsa and Delagratsia

Even if I get a heart attack.

At Pateli, at Neohori,
Everything is really great,
And at the bishopric, everything is romantic,
My sweet Frankosyriani.
