CĀN Y MELINYDD (The Miller Song)

I have a golden pony,
The fleetest ever seen,
Whose flying feet are shod, love,
With shoes of silver sheen.

  Fal di ral lal di ridey ro
  Fal di ral lal di ridey ro
  Fal di ral, di ridey ro-o-o-o
  A-a-a-a, a-a, a-a.


Twelve pullets and a cockerel,
A score of brindled kine;
And fatter pigs than any -
Were never pigs like mine.

Off goes my flying filly
On flashing silver shoon
O'er river, field, and mountain
To bring you back the moon.

I'll travel through the valleys,
I'll travel through the hills,
I'll travel through the forests,
I'll go where'er you will.
