The Wiktionary has αβγό. Is there a preferred form?

I got this sentence immediately after από πού είναι αυτοί; which is very amusing

a really strange sentence

"Bedoin tribes ascending
From the egg into the flower
Alpha information sending
States within the heaven shower
From disciples, the unending
Subtleties of river power
They slip inside this house as they pass by"

    Google tells me these are the opening lyrics from 13th Floor Elevators' 'Slip Inside This House' song. :) (But it's 'Bedouin'.)

    You're right! According to the lyrics sheet it's "Bedoin" (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-25xhB5jEAE0/VAgyZzhguUI/AAAAAAAAHH8/TMJ_1yIDFkQ/s1600/CCF04092014_00001.jpg) probably they misslepped it or Tommy Hall inveted this word for his philosophy :)

    Yes, as D_. said it's from "Slip Inside This House" by the 13th Floor Elevators :)

    Where does a chick come from? From an egg.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Daniel147471

    The chicken is falling out of the egg.

    Not so strange at all if you put it in a larger sentence.

    "Το κοτόπουλο πέφτει από ένα αυγό"

    What about: "out of an egg""? It says "wrong"...

    ...and where is the egg coming from? ;P XD
