Let it Go (Disney’s Frozen) in Classical Greek (Contributed by Students of the University of Auckland)

This is a hilarious Greek take on the Disney song from Frozen by Classics students at the University of Auckland.



χιων λαμπει λευκη
ἐφ ὁρου
οὐ στιβος τις ἐστι που
ἐρημιας βασιλεια
δοκω δ’ εἰναι ποτνια

ψοφει ἀνεμος ὡσπερ φρην
οὐκ ἐδυνηθην
πειρουσ’ ἰσχειν περ

μη τους ἐα εἰσοραν δη
ἰσθι καλη ἡ κορη
ὡς ἀει
μη τους ἐα εἰδειν
νυν δ’ ᾿ισασιν

μεθες το, μεθες το
οὐ δυναμαι κατεχειν
μεθες το, μεθες το
στρεφυ και θυρας κλειε
οὐ μελει τουτων φησοντων μοι
θυετω ζαλη
του ψυχους γ᾿ οὐποτε μοι ἐμελε

τα παντα μεν ἀηθως
μειοῦται προσωθεν
οὐκετι δε φοβοι ἐμοι
κυριοι μου εἰσιν

χρη ὁτινα δυναμαι δραν
μ᾿ ἐξεταζειν και δη πειραν
οὐ νομοι μοι, ἐλευθερος

μεθες το, μεθες το
ἀνεμῳ δ̣’ οὐρανῳ συντετηκα
μεθες το, μεθες το
οὐποτε κλαυσομαι
ἱσταμαι και δευρο μενω
θυετω ζαλη
του ψυχους γ᾿ οὐποτε μοι ἐμελε

δ’ ἀερος εἰς χθονα κρατος
θυμος δε πανταχου ἐν νιφαδεσσι
πηγνυνται δ’ ἐννοι’ ἁμα πνοιης

οὐποθ’ ἐπανειμι
ταυτα προτετυκται

μεθες το, μεθες το
ὡς ἠως ἀναστησομαι
μεθες το, μεθες το
τηδ’ ἀριστη οἰχεται
ἱσταμαι ὑπο ἡλιῳ
θυετω ζαλη
του ψυχους γ’ οὐποτε μοι ἐμελε

The snow glows white
On the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
kingdom of isolation
And it looks like I’m the Queen

The wind is howling
Like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in
Heaven knows I tried…

Don’t let them in
Don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Don’t feel
Don’t let them know…
Well, now they know!

Let it go, let it go
an’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door!
I don’t care what they’re going to say
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway

It’s funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can’t get to me at all!

It’s time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong
No rules for me
I’m free!

Let it go! Let it go!
I am one with the wind and sky!
Let it go! Let it go!
You’ll never see me cry!
Here I stand and here I’ll stay
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway

My power flurries through the air
into the ground
My soul is spiralling in frozen fractals
all around
And one thought crystallizes
like an icy blast
I’m never going back
The past is in the past!

Let it go! Let it go!
And I’ll rise like the break of dawn!
Let it go! Let it go!
That perfect girl is gone!
Here I stand in the light of day…
Let the storm rage on!!!
The cold never bothered me anyway.

Translated into Greek by Robert Drummond and Luke Ellery
