Anthio - Bye

SONG: 

Sing along in Greek:

Palamakia peksete
Ke o babas too erhete
Ke too ferni katiti
Kooloorakia sto kharti

 Palamakia peksete
Ke i manoola erhete
Na to parei agalia
To mikrooli tis pedhia

 Palamakia, palamakia
Pezoon ola ta pedhakia
Palamakia ke khoro
dakh dirdi
ke dakh dirdo

English translation:

Clap your hands
His dad is coming
To bring him something,
Cookies in a paper.

Clap your hands
Mommy is coming
To take her little one
On her lap, children.

Clap, clap
All the children clap
Clapping and dancing
Dah dirdi and 
Dah dirdo*.
