that is my least favorite tsamikos and least passonate one to dance to as the words have no meaning to me other than some eagle was sitting in the sun picking his toes...Imo there are about 10k better tsamikos with better words and with meaning...Vastate tourki ta aloga is 1# for me...funny thing is my mom and dads village is named Aetos and guess what song i hear at the paniyiri every time i am there...puke...

I agree, it is one of my least favorite tsamikos to either dance or listen to, but the same song, i.e. lyrics, as a kalamatiano is great. Takis Karnavas sings a version on an old Panvox label LP (now an MP label CD)

Re: Lyrics to Enas Aetos

Enas Aetos is the name and opening line from a pre-revolution (1821) Peloponissos Tsamiko. It is a thinly veiled mountain klepht (brigand) song encouraging the Greeks to rise up to destroy the Ottoman rule, to not let the small hit and run guerilla victories they had achieved stop there..

Roughly translated, with many slang intrusions, it says: "An Eagle sits, sits in the sun. You, Eagle, cleaning, cleaning your claws, sharpening your little claws. Don't let the Grouse you caught spoil, don't let it lie there too long..."

There are a group of klepht t's on this site: take a look. http://www.cafepress.com/enas_aetos.
