TA MAVRA RUKHA
Crete. Sometimes also called Oso Varun. Used for Syrtos Kritikos.
Oso varun ta sidhera aman aman
Varun ta mavra rukha.
Yiati ta foresa k'egho yiase mi mou
Ya myam aghapi pu 'kha.
Ikha kie isterithika kosme psefti
Thimoume ke stenazo.
Anikse yis mesa na vo, aman aman
Kosmo na mi kitazo.
Ach, as much as the irons ring, aman aman
so do the black clothes.
Ach, thus, I also wore them,
for a love I once had.
Ach, I had and I lost
I remember and I sigh.
Ach, open up, earth, so that I may enter, aman aman
so that I do not see the world.
