μήλο μου κόκκινο

Μήλο μου κόκκινο, ρόιδο βαμμένο (x2)
Γιατί με μάρανες το πικραμένο

Παένω κ’ έρχομαι μα δεν βρίσκω (x2)
Βρίσκω την πόρτα σου μανταλομένη

Τα παραθυρούδια σου φεγγοβολούνε (x2)
Ρωτάω την πόρτα σου, που πάει η κυρά σου

Κυρά μ’ δεν είναι ‘δώ, πάησε στην βρύση (x2)
Πάησε να βρει νερό και να γεμίσει

My red apple, my scarlet pomegranate,
why have you made me wilted and bitter?

I come and go, but cannot find you
I try your door, and it's always locked.

Your windows are always lighted
I ask your door, "Where is your lady?"

"My lady is not here, she is at the wellspring
She's gone to bring water".
