Rembetiko : Kaigomai-Kaigomai

A song scene from the 1983 Greek movie “Rembetiko” by Costas Ferris. More on Rembetika later.

English translation:
When a man is born, a sorrow is born
and when the war gets fierce, blood cannot be counted
(Chorus)
Burn, I burn, spill more oil on the fire…
Drown, I drown, throw me into a deep sea…
Burn, I burn, spill more oil on the fire…
Drown, I drown, throw me into a deep sea…
(Chorus)
I swore to your eyes, which were the Gospel to me
to turn the stab you gave me into laughter
Deep down in hell together, the chain break
and if you pull me by your side, blessed be you
