South East Crete GOING UPHILL
Get up, dress up, the day looks good,
to mountain villages we'll go,
up there we'll find some tasty food,
and look at nature in its glow.
And thus we took the road towards East,
four miles by the coast and then uphill,
the greenery fantastic, a soul's feast,
oh babe, I know you feel just like I feel.
Going up, I love your two sweet eyes,
going up, you love my careless heart,
you call it back, but still it flies,
you caught it! Girl, you are too smart!
And so, through all these gorges and ravines,
we drive to Skinokapsala at ease,
the roads are empty, lush are the evergreens,
autumnal mountain sides and pine trees.
We take a photo now and then,
we blow a kiss and carry on,
this seems to be an endless glen,
and we're in it, two souls alone.
You seem to be admiring every view,
you ask a thousand questions, then you smile,
look at it baby, smiling for me and you,
this magic world, befitting to your style.
