ALKO

Lo ani hu hamelech hagadol

az ech titni li lashevet letzidech
im ein li keter lasim lach beroshech

Alko zeh, ani ben ani'im

ein lo kesef velo sha'on zahav
alko zeh,
echad she'lo nechshav
ein lo kesef
ach yesh lo lev zahav.

ALKO

I am not the great king
I haven't got bread to eat with ease
so how will you let me settle by your side
if I have no crown to put on your head
Alko is, poor son of poor (people)
I don't have money,
my clothes are always worn out
Alko is one
who's not considered
he doesn't have money
or a gold watch
I am not the greak king
if only I could give everything to you
i'm Alko, just a greek kid
and Alexander - I certainly am not.

Alko is, poor son of poor (people)
I don't have money,
my clothes are always worn out
Alko is one
who's not considered
he doesn't have money or a gold watch
Alko is one
who's not considered
he doesn't have money
but he has a golden heart.
