Re: Christmas songs (ΝΙΦΕΤΩ)

τὸ χεῖμα ἔξω δεινὸν δὴ,
ἀλλὰ τὸ πῦρ ἐντὸς ὡς ὠραῖον,
ἐπειδὴ ἡμᾶς ἔσω δεῖ μενεῖν
νιφέτω, ὦ νιφέτω, νιφέτω

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

παύεσθαι φαίνεται οὐδαμῶς δή
ἔφερόν τινα τοίνυν ὀπτᾶσθαι
τὰ λύχνία γε φθειρέτω
νιφέτω, ὦ νιφέτω, νιφέτω

It doesn't show signs of stopping
And I've brought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

καταφιλουμένων δὲ ἡμῶν
εἰς χειμώνα μισῶ ἰέναι·
ἀλλ' εἰ μενῶ ἐν σῷ κόλπῳ
οἴκαδ' ἰὼν θάλψομαι

When we finally kiss goodnight
How I hate going out in the storm
But if you really hold me tight
All the way home I'll be warm

τὸ πῦρ ἀποσβέννυται
καὶ χωριζόμεθα φιλῶς
ἐφ' ὅσον δ' ἐμὲ φιλεῖς
νιφέτω, ὦ νιφέτω, νιφέτω

The fire is slowly dying
And my dear we're still goodbye-ing
As long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

κατανείφοντ' οὐ δόκεῖ παύεσθαι
ἐκόμισ' ἀρἀ ψημένο καλαμπόκι
τὰς λαμπάδας μαυρῶμεν κάτω
νιφέτω, ὦ νιφέτω, νιφέτω

Oh, it doesn't show signs of stopping
And I've brought some corn for popping
and the lights are turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
OH... let it snow

οἴκαδ' ἰὼν θάλψομαι
οἴκαδ' ἰὼν θάλψομαι

All the way home I'll be warm
All the way home I'll be warm

τὸ πῦρ ἀποσβέννυται
καὶ φιλῶς ἔτι χωριζόμαι
ἐφ' ὅσον δ' ἐμὲ φιλεῖς
νιφέτω, ὦ νιφέτω, νιφέτω
νιφέτω, ὦ νιφέτω, νιφέτω
νιφέτω, ὦ νιφέτω, νιφέτω

The fire is slowly dying
And my dear I'm still goodbye-ing
As long you love me so
Let it snow, Let it Snow, Let it snow
Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow
Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow
