Η Εμορφη Ατταλεια

Here’s a great traditional tune extolling the virtues of Attaleia (modern Antalya), on the southern coast of Turkey, which, in times past, hosted a sizable Greek community.

I want to travel, ox, aman, aman
to the waters of Attaleia.
ax, the waters of Attaleia.

Which has beautiful girls,
and dashing young guys,
and immortal wine…..
