Greek
Mas vrike i trikymia mesa stin Egnatia
Boforia mas travane sta anoichta
Sa lathos na ‘nai i rota, poios paizei me ta fota?
Ki i plori mas travaei gia Grevena

Se mia thalassa ouiski
Navagoi kai poios mas vriskei
Kai zalizetai treglizei, oli gi

Me kefali sourotiri
Kai t’ amaxi trechantiri
Poios tou evale pidalio kai pani?

Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol is free, alcohol is free

Kyma kai lyssomanaei
Ki i gorgona na rotaei
Ma o Alekos ta ‘chei piei, kali kyra

Mesopelaga fanari
Re mas pirane champari
Poios to pige to spitaki mou makria, makria?

Mas vrike i trikymia mesa stin Egnatia
Boforia mas travane sta anoichta
Sa lathos na ‘nai i rota, poios paizei me ta fota?
Ki i plori mas travaei gia Grevena

Mas vrike i trikymia mesa stin Egnatia
Boforia mas travane sta anoichta
Sa lathos na ‘nai i rota, poios paizei me ta fota?
Ki i plori mas travaei gia Grevena

De mas ‘ftaigan ta ouiskakia
Bompa itan ta pagakia
Kai to skafos echei rodes, telika

Alkotest kai trochonomos
Den epnai gpa mas o dromos
Katifora mes sti thalassa, archina

Greek script
Μας βρήκε η τρικυμία μέσα στην Εγνατία
Μποφόρια μας τραβάνε στα ανοιχτά
Σα λάθος να ‘ναι η ρότα, ποιος παίζει με τα φωτα;
Κι η πλώρη μας τραβάει για Γρεβενά

Σε μια θάλασσα ουίσκι
Ναυαγοί και ποιος μας βρήσκει
Και ζαλίζεται τρεγλίζει, όλη γη

Με κεφάλι σουρωτήρι
Και τ’ αμάξι τρεχαντήρι
Ποιος του έβαλε πηδάλιο και πανί;

Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol is free, alcohol is free

Κύμα και λυσσομανάει
Κι η γοργόνα να ρωτάει
Μα ο Αλέκος τα ‘χει πιει, καλή κυρά

Μεσοπέλαγα φανάρι
Ρε μας πήρανε χαμπάρι
Ποιος το πήγε το σπιτάκι μου μακριά, μακριά;

Μας βρήκε η τρικοιμία, μέσα στην εγνατία
Μποφόρια μας τραβάνε στα ανοιχτά
Σα λάθος να ‘ναι η ρότα, ποιος παίζει με τα φωτα;
Κι η πλώρη μας τραβάει για Γρεβενά

Μας βρήκε η τρικοιμία, μέσα στην εγνατία
Μποφόρια μας τραβάνε στα ανοιχτά
Σα λάθος να ‘ναι η ρότα, ποιος παίζει με τα φωτα;
Κι η πλώρη μας τραβάει για Γρεβενά

Δε μας ‘φταίγαν τα ουισκάκια
Μπόμπα ήταν τα παγάκια
Και το σκάφος έχει ρόδες, τελικά

Αλκοτέστ και τροχονόμος
Δεν είναι για μας ο δρόμος
Κατηφόρα μες στη θάλασσα, αρχηνά

Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free

Translation
The heavy storm found us on Egnatia Street
Beaufort forces take us on the open sea
The course might be a little wrong, who is playing with the lights?
And the ship’s fore pulls us towards Grevena

In a sea of whisky
Castaways and who can find us
And the whole earth gets dizzy, staggers

Someone with his head like a strainer
And the car like a fishing boat
Who has put the rudder and sail?

Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol is free, alcohol is free

There’s a wave and it’s raging
And the mermaid is asking
But Alekos is drunk, fair lady

There’s a lantern in the middle of the sea
Dude, we were found out
Who took my little house far away, far away?

The heavy storm found us passing through Via Egnatia
Beaufort forces take us on the open sea
The course might be a little wrong, who is playing with the lights?
And the ship’s fore pulls us towards Grevena

The heavy storm found us passing through Via Egnatia
Beaufort forces take us on the open sea
The course might be a little wrong, who is playing with the lights?
And the ship’s fore pulls us towards Grevena

The whisky is not to blame
The ice cubes were bombs
Even the boat eventually has wheels

Breathalyser test and a traffic warden
The road wasn’t made for us
Downhill is starting in the sea

Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol is free, alcohol is free

Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol is free, alcohol is free

    We found the storm into the Egnatia
    Beaufort pulls us off

    And the bow pulls us for Grevena

    In a sea of whiskey

    The storm found us in Egnatia
    Beaufort pull us in shallow waters
    The course looks wrong, who is playing with the lights?
    And the bow is pulling us towards Grevena

    In a sea of whisky
    (we ‘re) castaways and who will find us?
    And the whole earth gets dizzy, staggers

    With a head like a strainer
    And the car like a fishing boat
    Who has put a rudder and sail on it?

    Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free (x3)
    Alcohol is free, alcohol is free

    (There’s) wave and it’s raging
    And the mermaid is asking
    But Alekos is drunk, fair lady

    (There’s a) traffic light in the midlle of the sea
    Dude, they are on us
    Who took my little house far, far away?

    The storm found us in Egnatia
    Beaufort pull us in shallow waters
    The course looks wrong, who is playing with the lights?
    And the bow is pulling us towards Grevena

    The storm found us in Egnatia

    The whisky is not to blame
    The ice cubes were bombs
    And the boat has wheels, eventually

    Alcotest and traffic cop
    they are not the terror for us
    A slope is starting in the sea

    Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free (x3)
    Alcohol is free, alcohol is free

  • you says:

    could someone help , there are so many different translations! which is right!?

  • YEP says:

    The first translation is total nonsense, probably by machine.

    The second is mostly correct. But the refrain should be AS FOLLOWS:

    The sea- storm found us in Egnatia [a motorway in Northern Greece]
    Heavy winds are pulling us to open water
    The course looks wrong, who is playing with the lights?
    And the bow is pulling us towards Grevena

    and “a slope is starting to the sea” should be “we start to slide downhill into the sea”

  • YEP says:

    All right, I found more things that can be improved so I might as well post the whole thing (like I said Nikoletta’s translation was good with siome exceptions):

    The sea- storm found us in Egnatia [a motorway in Northern Greece]
    Heavy winds are pulling us to open water
    The course looks wrong, who is playing with the lights?
    And the bow is pulling us towards Grevena

    In a sea of whisky
    (we ‘re) castaways and who will find us?
    And the whole earth gets dizzy, staggers

    With a head like a strainer
    And the car like a fishing boat
    Who has put a rudder and sail on it?

    The course looks wrong, who is playing with the lights?
    And the bow is pulling us towards Grevena

    The whisky is not to blame
    The ice cubes were adulterated
    And it turns out the boat has wheels

    Alcotest and traffic cop
    The road is not for us
    We are starting to slide downhil to the sea

    Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free (x3)
    Alcohol is free, alcohol is free

    Vollig unvorbereitet hat es uns Sturm auf der Egnatia Strasse getroffen.
    Wir wurden vor der Kueste des Meers von den wilden Wind gezogen.

    Es scheint wir haben den falschen Weg genommen, Vielleicht spielt es jemand mit das Licht?
    Und der Bug zieht uns nach GREVENA (eine Stadt in Nord Griechenland wo es ueberhaupt kein Meer oder See gibt!)
    In ein Meer voll von Whiskey
    (Wir sind) Schiffenruechige, und wer kann uns finden.
    Und er schwindligt und macht runden und die ganze Erde geht hin und her.
    Mit dem Kopf wie ein Sieb
    Und unser Wagen wie der Schiff
    Wer hat es mit einem Ruder gesetzt und es segelt?
    Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
    Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
    Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
    Alcohol is free, alcohol is free
    Es gibt Wellen die aus Tollwut schwindeln
    Und es gibt die Meerjungfrau die immer fragt (ob der Koenig Alexander noch immer lebt)
    Aber Alekos (Alexander) ist besoffen meine gute Frau
    In der Mitte des Meeres kann man ein Licht sehen.
    Die haben uns entdeckt (verstanden)
    Wer hat mein kleines Hauslein so weit enfernt gezogen, Aber so weit entfernt?
    Nein, das war nicht wegen des Whiskey
    Whiskey war ganz in Ordnung, Es waren die Eiswuerfel ins Whiskey die nicht gut waren!
    Und WIRKLICH, SO IST ES (!) das Schiff HAT wirklich Raeder!
    Lords und Polizisten,
    Der ist NICHT UNSER WEG
    Es hat der Abfahrt in der Mitte des Meeres angefangen
    Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
    Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
