Nana Mouskouri – The White Rose Of Athens lyrics

White rose of athens/ 1rst version xxxxx
(Hadjidakis / Newell / Bleyer)

So goodbye my love till then
Till the white rose blooms again

1-
The summer days are ending in the valley
And soon the time will come when we must be apart
Though you must start
You journey to the sailing
And leave me till another spring-time comes around

2-
Till the white rose blooms again
You must leave me, leave me lonely
So goodbye my love till then
Till the white rose blooms again
Bis

3-
The cotton leaves are falling in the valley
And soon the winter snow will lie on the ground
But like the rose that comes back with the springtime
You will return to me when springtime comes around

Repeat 1

Goodbye till then
Goodbye till then

White rose of athens / 2nd version
(Hadjidakis / N. Newell / A. Bleyer)

Chorus

Till the white rose blooms again
You must leave me, leave me lonely
So good-bye my love till then
Till the white rose blooms again

The summer days are ending in the valley
And soon the time will come when we must be apart
But like the rose that comes back with the spring time
You will return to me when spring-time comes around

Good-bye till then
Good-bye till then
Good-bye till then
