Kafenion Arachtopōleio in Avlemonas, 4 July 2017, Kytherians elders singing a sad song

Visting the land of my Grandfather, Nicholas Jerome Kasimatis (b. 1890) on 4 July 2017.  Having a drink at Arachtopōleio in Avlemonas to celebrate my 60th birthday.  A lovely group of elders sat at a table near us.  They were also celebrating some occasion with a dessert and drink when they began singing.  Not knowing Greek, I couldn't say what the words meant but I thought I recognized "Ameriki" and "Agapi"; so sad and beautiful.
