Despite its title this song is not about football.

I knew that in a general way but the lyrics are very difficult (I used to think that Τα κατά Μάρκον had the hardest lyrics in the Dalaras discography - until I started on Ανεμολόγιο: since then I know it's Συγγνώμη για την άμυνα ) and this seemed the occasion to find out.

The chorus didn't make any sense at all till I went to check the lyrics on the LP cover and found that in the site, they have lost some essential punctuation. So I made the correction here.

I am not at all sure I understood this correctly and mr Tripolitis definitely deserves to be heard, so, παιδιά, HELP!

1-0 || 1-0

Μουσική: Θάνος Μικρούτσικος || Music: Thanos Mikroutsikos

Στίχοι: Κώστας Τριπολίτης || Lyrics: Kostas Tripolitis

Ωραίο πράγμα ο έρωτας || Love is a wonderful thing

μόνο που έχει μια δυσκολία || except that is has one difficulty

χρειάζονται το λιγότερο δύο || it takes at least two

στη φαντασία του ενός || in the imagination of the single one

Έτσι που το ένα-μηδέν του άλλου || The way in which the 1-0 of the other

να 'ναι μηδέν-μηδέν του... μηδενός || will mean the 0-0 of ... nobody.

Μεγάλο πράγμα το αίσθημα || Feeling is a great thing

μα έλα που έχει και λίγο ζόρι || but come, it also has its little demands

χρειάζεται το λιγότερο έναν || it takes a least one being

για να υπάρξει γενικώς || for it to exist at all

Έτσι που το ένα-μηδέν του άλλου || The way in which the 1-0 of the other

να 'ναι μηδέν-μηδέν του... μηδενός || will mean the 0-0 of ... nobody.

I knew I wouldn't ask in vain :) - thanks Christo and Pavlo for your answers.

I've amended the original instead of re-posting, to keep it more legible.

I didn't mean you Pano - I meant Christos-regnis and Astron, who contributed by PM, but I called them by their ordinary name instead of their nick. Compliments are nice but they don't count as "help" (but thank you nonetheless).

And I've changed my mind again overnight about λίγο ζόρι - see the edited first post.
