Βαρώσι μου - Παντελής Κακολής

Τες ομορκές που σου ’δωκεν ο πλάστης μου για προίκα

θυμούνται τζαι θαυμάζουσιν

τζαι τον Θεό δοξάζουσιν

οσοι τις εχαρήκαν

Τζαι αν σήμερα εγιούτησεν μακριά που σεν’να ζήσουν

εσένα πάντα σκέφτουνται!!

τζιμούνται τζι’ονειρέφκουνται

κοντάσου να γυρίσουν.

Καλλίττερην ’που λλόου σου πόλην εν θα γυρέψουν

τζαι μιαν ημέραν θα’ρτουσιν

τες ομορκιές σου να’βρουσιν

να τες νυκοτζυρέψουν.

Να ξανανοιώσουν την τιμήν τζαι την ελευθερίαν

’που την χαρά να κλάψουσιν

τζαι αλάθαστα να γράψουσιν

για σεν’ την ιστορίαν.

Αδέρκια Αμμοχωστιανοί, οι φυσικοί, οι νόμοι

μ’αλλάσσουν μ’ζαώννουσιν

είμαστεν κληρονόμοι.

Σ’εμας εν’ η κληρονομιά σ’ μας θα ξημερώσει

πιστέψετε θα φτάσουμεν

στο όμορφο ΒΑΡΩΣΙ
