SOS was the Cypriot entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1991 in Rome performed by Elena Patroklou.

The song is an environmentally-themed plea to the people of the world. Patroklou sings about the damage humanity has caused to the planet and that the SOS of the title is from the earth itself. While such topics are relatively common in popular music, even though they had not been raised as frequently at the Contest.

It was performed 21st on the night, following the United Kingdom entry and preceding Italy. At the close of voting, it finished in 9th place with 60 points.

Lyrics

Edo, ston trito planiti̱
Pote den svisan oi foties
Pos moiazei me trelo komiti
Gemato me pyrinikes

Ton ilio kaname echthro mas
Pantou pli̱gosame ti gi
Molyname ton ourano mas
Kai richnei oxini vrochi

Edo planitis gi, edo planitis gi
SOS, SOS, SOS
Edo planitis gi, edo planitis gi
SOS, SOS, SOS

Trigyro ta poulia pethainoun
Ta psaria vgainoun sti steria
Pantou oi anthropoi so̱painoun
Den xeroun ti na kanoun pia

Edo planitis gi, edo planitis gi
SOS, SOS, SOS
Edo planitis gi, edo planitis gi
SOS, SOS, SOS

Edo planitis gi, edo planitis gi
SOS, SOS, SOS

SOS

Here, on the third planet
The fires have never died out
How it looks like a mad comet
Full of nuclear arms

We’ve made the sun our enemy
We’ve hurt the earth everywhere
We’ve polluted our sky
And acid rain is falling

Planet Earth calling, planet Earth calling
SOS, SOS, SOS
Planet Earth calling, planet Earth calling
SOS, SOS, SOS

The birds die around us
The fish get out on land
All people stay silent
I don’t know what to do anymore

Planet Earth calling, planet Earth calling
SOS, SOS, SOS
Planet Earth calling, planet Earth calling
SOS, SOS, SOS

Planet Earth calling, planet Earth calling
SOS, SOS, SOS

SOS
