Δἑν ἀπορεῖ
Language: Greek (Ελληνικά) 
Απάνω ςὄρεο τὸ βουνὸ
Μαννα χαὶ θυγατέρα δυό.

Μἀζωναν τον ἀμάραντον
Καὶ τὸ μελισσοχόρταρον

Μἀχει ποὖ τὸ μαζὠνανε
Καὶ τὸ χεριοδιαλεγανε

Βρισχουνε χενα νεόγαμβρο
Χώρι ἀπὸ τὴν νυφοῦλά τον. --

"Μαννοῦλα μʹ ἂς τὸμ παρωμεν
Τὸν ξενο εις τὸ σπῆτι μας." --

Μώῥ ʹμεῖς ψωμὶ δὲν ἔχομεν
Τὸν ξένον τί τὸν θελομεν;" --

,Μάννα μʹ τὺ μερδιχυῦλί μου
Μὲ σώνʹ ἐμένʹ χαὶ χεινονε." --

"Μῶῤ 'μεἲς ϛρῶμα δὲν ἔχομεν'
Τὸν ξένον τι τὸν φελομεν;" --

"Μάννα μ' τὸ ϛρωματάχι μου 
Μὲ σώνʹ ἐμένʹ χαὶ χείνονε." --

Confirmed with Daniel H. Sanders, Das Volksleben der Neugriechen, Mannheim: Friedrich Bassermann, 1844. Appears in Romantische Lieder, pages 54-56.
