The lyrics of the song Hristougenna by Foivos Delivorias translated to English
Hristougenna - English lyrics
Yet I do not expect anything, anymore
Santa Claus’ name was simply “dad”
He is a former communist Greek.
He is a mortal one.
With his dream having no roof
And my mom being a girl of the spring
Being overwhelmed by the old recipe
The scents have a heavy odor
that we just do not want to open again.
My playmobils are missing limps because of me
Fireworks that are obliterated in champagne
For some probably is still a celebration
But who are they?
They live in incubators or in villages.
Anything I start is going wrong
It always leads me to the nails of
And now and then I use them as well
on another lamb
That’s how it’s always been and it’ll always be.
So what do you want out of my life once more?
With your lethal lights
And your kiss is always acceptable
How much do I hate you!
You always want to be the same and you want me
to keep changing
You want me to be your personal creator
Do not say that I look like Donald
In front of a spot light that is not enough
It is not my fault that if you are away
My life is thirsty.
The little donkey moves slowly ahead
Looking for 24 hour inn that is open
Or just a barn that can encompass the emptiness
Without it the New Year does not begin
I gather shepherds and magicians from distant lands
I celebrate so we can permanently change.
I do not pretend anymore…
