LIFE-LONG LOVE AFFAIR
(A Deal With Alex 1)
I went through this sometimes before
and so I know what to do,
what to expect, what to hope for,
any rebetiko will do.
I came to town for a drink,
"Doukiani" now has changed hands,
for every song I need a link,
I sing but no one understands.
What is rebetiko for me?
It is a life-long love affair,
thousands of miles by land and sea,
fighting the false and the unfair.
