So long, Yannis

Leila calling Yannis
Yannis calling Marianthis
Marianthis calling dinner is ready
Yannis calling for Yannis
Tjeee tjeee tjeee tjeee
Yannis calling his sheep
Yannis drinking ouzo

We had great times together
Eating, drinking, you and Marianthis dancing
singing and laughing
talking about the good times

You taught me how to drink ouzo
sipping and raising the glass
again and again while eating feta,
sheepballs and great fish

Your last years were maybe not what you expected of life
suffering and staying home
away from your beloved mountains
the sheep and other animals

But now you are free again
to go climbing hills again
calling after your sheep
talking to your dogs

So long, Yannis
It was an honour knowing you
