Y Clychau

Ding ding dong dawe

(Y Clychau)
Ding ding dong dawe,
  Clych Abertawe;
Ding ding dong deilo,
  Clychau Llandeilo;
Ding ding dong deifi
  Clych Aberteifi;
Ding ding dong medd y gloch,
  Bu farw'r bachgen goch.
  Dowch gynta' galloch.

(The Bells)
Ding ding dong dawe,
  The bells of Swansea;
Ding ding dong deilo,
  The bells of Llandeilo;
Ding ding dong deifi
  The bells of Cardigan;
Ding ding dong says the bell,
  The red boy has died.
  Come as soon as you can.
tr. 2016 Richard B Gillion
