The heavy sea found us (when we were passing) through Via Egnatia1
Beaufort forces take us on the open sea
The course might be a little wrong, who is playing with the lights?
And the (ship’s) fore is heading towards Grevena2

In a sea of whisky
(we ‘re) castaways and who can find us
And the whole earth gets dizzy, staggers

(Someone) with his head like a strainer
And the car like a fishing boat
Who has put it wheel and sail?

Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free (x3)
Alcohol is free, alcohol is free

(There’s) wave and it’s raging
And the mermaid is asking
But Alekos is drunk, fair lady

(There’s a) traffic light in the midlle of the sea
Dude, we were found out
Who took my little house far away, far away?

The heavy sea found us (when we were passing) through Via Egnatia
Beaufort forces take us on the open sea
The course might be a little wrong, who is playing with the lights?
And the (ship’s) fore is heading towards Grevena

The heavy sea found us (when we were passing) through Via Egnatia
Beaufort forces take us on the open sea
The course might be a little wrong, who is playing with the lights?
And the (ship’s) fore is heading towards Grevena

The whisky is not to blame
The ice cubes were bombs3
Even the boat eventually has wheels

Alcotest and traffic cop
The road wasn’t made for us
A downhill is starting in the sea

Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free (x3)
Alcohol is free, alcohol is free
