Lyrics – Transliteration

(Greek folk song)

Magapás Garifalia mou,
Magapás i me gelás
Magapás í me gelás
Ton keró sou na pernás

Sagapó Vasilikó mou
Sagapó de se geló
Sagapó de se geló
Ton keró mou na pernó

English Translation

Do you love me, my Carnation;
Do you love me or are you laughing at me
Do you love me or are you laughing at me
To pass the time?

I love you, my Basil
I love you, I don’t laugh at you
I love you, I don’t laugh at you
To pass the time

Greek – Η Γαρυφαλιά

Μ’ αγαπάς Γαρυφαλλιάμου
Μ’ αγαπάς η με γελάς
Μ’ αγαπάς ή με γελάς
τον καιρό σου να περνάς

Σ’ αγαπώ Βασιλικό μου
Σ’ αγαπώ δε σε γελώ
Σ’ αγαπώ, δε σε γελώ
τον καιρό μου να περνώ
