Ayios Vasilis erhete
Ke den mas katadehete
Apo, apo tin kesaria.
Sis arhon sis arhondissa Kiria!
Vastari penna ke harti
Harti, harti ke kalamari
Des eme, des eme, to pallikari!
To kalamari egrafe
Ti mira toy tin elege
Ke to, ke to harti omili.
To hriso, to hriso mas kaiofili!
Psili mou dendrolivania,
Ke arhi, ke arhi kalos mas hronos.
Eklisia, eklisia, me tayio thronos!
Arhi pou vgiken o Hristos
Ayios ke Pnevmatikos,
Sti gi, gi na perpatisi
Ke na mas, ke na mas kalokardisi!
In English Translation
Saint Basil comes,
And does not acknowledge us
You are, you are the mistress of the house!
He holds a pen and paper
And leavened sweets
