Title: Two Pontian songs
Post by: Anastasios on December 31, 2008, 01:22:47 PM

1) The first song is a Christmas carol; does anyone know the name of it and if the lyrics are online?

2) Around 4:50 a man starts singing a song about how abroad he's considered a Greek but in Greece he is a foreigner (since Pontian refugees were not always treated right after the disaster of 1922). Does anyone know the name of this song and if the lyrics are online?

Thanks!

2) The song is Pente Spitia Ektisa "the 5 houses I built" by Stelios Kazantzidis. Sorry father I can't find the lyrics.

Πέντε οσπίτεα έχτισα,
Κι ας’ ολεα ξεσπιτούμαι,
Πρόσφυγας είμαι ασο κουνίμ’,
Θεέμ’ θα παλαλλούμε.

Πατρίδα μ’ αραεύω σε,
Άμον καταραμένος,
Σα ξένα είμαι Έλληνας,
Και σην Ελλάδαν ξένος.

Οσπίτεα εφέκα ανάμεσα,
Σ’ ορμήν και ποταμάκρή,
Πεγάδεα μαρμαρόχτιστα,
Νερόν άμον το δάκρυν.


Πατρίδα μ’ αραεύω σε,
Άμον καταραμένος,
Σα ξένα είμαι Έλληνας,
Και σην Ελλάδαν ξένος.


Κι ατώρα αδακές διψώ,
Νερόν να πίνω κ’ έχω,
Εντρέπουμαι να ψαλαφώ,
Τα χειλόπαμ’ να βρέχω.


Πατρίδα μ’ αραεύω σε,
Άμον καταραμένος,
Σα ξένα είμαι Έλληνας,
Και σην Ελλάδαν ξένος.
