I DON'T WANT YOUR MONEY (P. Tounda), vocal: Roza Eskenazi
I don't want your money, stop loving me.
I don't want you, I've told you several times, you're a rich mangas*1.
I'm longing for a fish salesman in the market with a pair of scales2* and a teziaki*3.
When I love such a fine, handsome and brave man, how can I refuse him?
Cheers to fish sailsmen
I don't want your houses, your welfare and your comforts,
you can't convince me with your tricks, you're a rich mangas
Cheers to manges
*1 mangas , see post Saturday, April, 12, 2008
*2 pair of scales, old type of balance (weight) like the one you see at the photo
*3 teziaki, a small cupboard with a drawer where they put the change
