about

Kitro in greek means "Citrus" which is like the father of bitter fruits. It is also a Greek liquor. It symbolizes the bitter things we have to swallow in order to cure ourselves. Like a medicine has strong bitter taste but it makes you feel better once you are past that part. In other words you have to swallow the bitter situations so you can move past them and cure yourself.

lyrics

Kitro

Κιτριά φρουτοκοιλάδα
Φυλλωσιά ηχώ σαν άρπα
Άρωμα οξύ υγρό αγέρι
Ομορφιά κυκλαδική
Λεμονιά ψηλή μακριά να βλέπει
Πέλαγα να νοσταλγεί

Και να, κίτρο να πιεις και να μεθύσεις
Και να, κίτρο να πιεις και να τσουγκρίσεις

Κίτρινα φρουτολιβάδια
Όξινα γλυκοπικρά
Άρωμα οξύ υγρό αγέρι
Ομορφιά κυκλαδική
Λεμονιά ψηλή μακριά να βλέπει
Πέλαγα να νοσταλγεί

Και να, κίτρο να πιεις και να μεθύσεις
Και να, κίτρο να πιεις και να τσουγκρίσεις
Και να, στα χίλια μύρια να βαδίσεις
Και να, κίτρο να πιεις να μη γυρίσεις

------------------------------------------------------

Citron, fruit valley
Leaves echoing like harp
Aroma sharp, wet wind
Cycladic beauty
Lemon tree tall to see far
Nostalgic of seas

Drink Kitro and get drunk
Drink Kitro and toast

Yellow fruit meadows
Sour and bittersweet
Aroma sharp, wet wind
Cycladic beauty
Lemon tree tall to see far
Nostalgic of seas

Drink Kitro and get drunk
Drink Kitro and toast
Walk a thousand miles
Drink Kitro and don’t return
