Markos wrote this song for a mystery woman who came every night to Votanikos just before the war broke out. ‘There were loads of other women who came just to hear me and see me. They really fancied me, you know what I mean? I was a pretty fit guy back then ... I could see her sitting there but I wasn’t going to tell her "I wrote it for you". I fancied her. I saw she was beautiful and I sang this whenever she came. Of course she would have guessed I’d written it for her. For sure that’s why she came, but she never even invited me to go sit at her table so she could offer me a drink. Maybe that’s because she didn’t come alone. She always had company but she came sure as clockwork ... '
A Crazy Blue-Eyed Blonde
A girl with blue eyes, crazy blonde
Who’s full of youth and beauty
Sits every night up front and makes
Me melt she’s such a cutie!
So slinky and provocative
She comes here every night.
Give up your tricks you naughty blonde
Embrace me hold me tight!
You’ve got me all confused and you
Don’t care I droop with pain.
You tease! I cannot bear it as
The pain I try to hide’s insane
Ξανθιά Τρελή Γαλανομάτα
Μια ξανθιά τρελή γαλανομάτα,
που `ναι όλο ομορφιά και νιάτα,
κάθε βράδυ κάθεται μπροστά μου
κι έλιωσε τα φύλλα της καρδιάςμου.
Κάθε βράδυ πάντα μ’ ανταμώνει,
με τα νάζια της πώς με πεισμώνει,
Άφησε ξανθιά την απονιά σου,
βάλε με μέσα στην αγκαλιά σου.
Μ’ έχεις μπερδεμένο δε σε νοιάζει,
Πώς πονώ για σε κι έχω μαράζι.
Δεν μπορώ ν’αντέξω παιχνιδιάρα,
κρύβω μέσα μου για σε λαχτάρα.
