Lyrics

Pernane ta hronia, i agapes ke hiona mas
Vriskune panda mazi
Perasame bores ke dhiskoles ores
Ma panda i agapi mas zi

Pote de thimame, anisihos na' me yiat'
Isuna panda esi
Pisti sindrofia mu, tragudhi hara mu
Agapi k' elpidha hrisi

Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni
Moni, Moni, Monika
Zis esi yia mena, zo ego yia sena
Ki ine ol' armonika

Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni
Moni, Moni, Monika
Zis esi yia mena, zo ego yia sena
Ki ine ol' armonika

Pote de thimame, anisihos na' me yiat'
Isuna panda esi
Pisti sindrofia mu, tragudhi hara mu
Agapi k' elpidha hrisi

Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni
Moni, Moni, Monika
Zis esi yia mena, zo ego yia sena
Ki ine ol' armonika

Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni
Moni, Moni, Monika
Zis esi yia mena, zo ego yia sena
Ki ine ol' armonika

Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni
Moni, Moni, Monika
Zis esi yia mena, zo ego yia sena
Ki ine ol' armonika
Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni
Moni, Moni, Monika
Zis esi yia mena, zo ego yia sena
Ki ine ol' armonika

But always our love remains

I never remember me being worried because
It was always you
My trusted company, my happy song

And everything is in harmony

It was always you
My trusted company, my happy song
My golden love and hope

Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni
Moni, Moni, Monica
You live for me, I live for you
And everything is in harmony

Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni
Moni, Moni, Monica
You live for me, I live for you
And everything is in harmon

Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni, Moni
