Papazoglou, 1935, Kalogria (“Nun”).

Βαρέθηκα τον κόσμο πιά, καλογριά θα γίνω,
και απάνω σε ψηλό βουνό, μονάχη μου θα μείνω.

I’m tired of this world, I’ll become a nun,
and go up to a tall mountain, where I’ll live alone.


Here’s a wonderful version sung by Eleftheria Arvanitaki in her younger years. The folk guitar in this recording is simply fantastic–what a sound.

And the original:
