(στην Ασπασία)
ΕΓΩ ΑΛΛΟΥ ΧΡΩΣΤΑΩ

Εγώ αλλού χρωστάω κι' όχι της Μιχαλούς,
αυτήνε την αφήνω για πιο νορμάλ-τρελούς,
να διώξω απ' τη ζωή μου αυτό το ενέχυρο,
πρέπει να την χαρίσω σε νέο Ζέφυρο.

Γλυκό αγέρι φύσα και πάρε με απαλά,
ακούω την καρδιά μου σιγά να σου μιλά,
οι σκέψεις μου για σένα δεν είναι φρόνιμες,
στη νύχτα γίναν φλόγες που καίνε μόνιμες.

Εγώ αλλού χρωστάω κι' όχι της Μιχαλούς,
χρωστώ στον εαυτό μου δυό άγνωστους γιαλούς,
στα δυό σου ακρογιάλια χρωστώ τα χείλη μου,
μη με ακούς νηφάλια, σε θέλω φίλη μου.

I HAVE DEBTS TO SOMEONE ELSE

I have debts to someone else, but not to Michalou,
That one I leave for more normal madmen,
so as to repel from my life this pawn,
I must devoted it (my life) to a new Zephyr.

Sweet breeze blow and take me smoothly,
I can hear my heart speaking to you softly,
my thoughts for you are not cautious,
they became flames in the night that burn permanently.

I have debts to someone else, but not to Michalou,
I owe to myself two unknown sea shores,
to your twin beaches I owe my lips,
don’t listen to me serenely, I want you as my friend.



Michalou = From old Greek proverbial expression "I owe to Michalou", meaning, "I'm not in my right mind, I'm getting crazy".
Michalou was an old woman from Corinth, the owner of a taverna, and apparently the whole town used to owe money to her for allowing them to drink on "credit".
