Re-adaptation of Foridas/Hatzihristos song.
The song is a metaphora through the image of Ulysses tested by life to find back Ithaca.


Comme un étranger, sur sa propre terre
Comme Ulysse naviguant sur une embarcation sommaire
Xenos ici, Xenos là bas, psakhni yia patrida,
tora tha sas po tin istoria tou odyssea!

Gël Gël Kaiksis, Sirène chantez !
Gël Gël Kaiksis, Rameurs ramez !
Gël Gël Kaiksis, Sirines tragoudate!
Gël Gël Kaiksis, Kopilates sta koupia!

Trahi, trompé, désorienté,
En haillons retrouvé
Ce Roi, parti au combat
Qu'a t-il gagné, qu'a t-il perdu?
Tout! écoutez !

Güzel Khanum, la guerre, ses frères, son palais, son royaume
Güzel Khanum, Penelope tisse en l'attendant
Güzel Khanum, Ses prétendant font les princes charmants
Güzel Khanum, o ekdikitis o Telemakhos,
Son fils s'arme en prince vengeant !

Ithaque est dans ton coeur
Et si tu la trouves pauvre
Elle t'a donné le beau voyage
Dhen se yelase i Ithaki!

Lyrics: Ian Balzan Dorizas
Last verse inspired from "Ithaca" by Cavafy

ACROPOLIS BYE BYE results out of a need to get personally involved in a music that belongs to a specific place and time, so as to take it out of its borders and suit to the artist's realities.
