Pink Martini - Children of piraeus

Tekst piosenki:

(In Greek, translated to English)
   From my balcony I send
   One, two, three and four kisses to the world
   Over the docks of Piraeus fly
   One, two, three and four seagulls, I am told
   How much I’d love to have
   One, two, three and four boys, proud and fine
   And when one day they grow up
   They’ll be manly and strong
   For this precious port of mine
   And when I come out of my door
   There is no one in the world, there is
   No one I don’t love
   And every night I close my eyes and I
   Sleep and I know
   I’ll dream of them just like before
   Jewels around my neck
   A good-luck charm I carry
   Because the night falls and I long
   To find a perfect stranger
   And seduce him with my song
   So much I’ve tried
   I’ve never found a port
   To captivate my heart
   As Piraeus does
   And when the night falls
   The air is filled with songs
   With tunes and sounds and laughter
   Bursting with life and youthful calls
