English lyrics: Robert Bryan

Cuckoo dear, why art thou winging,
Fal de ral de roo, doo ree ri ti toh,
Hither o'er the heather singing,
Fal de ral de roo, doo ree ri ti toh!
To Dolgelly ere the morrow,
Fal de ral de roo, de ri ti yoh,
Wend thy way and soothe my sorrow,
Fal de ral de roo, de ri ti yoh!

2. Cuckoo dear, my heart's companion,
Fal de ral de roo, doo ree ri ti toh,
Fly from here across the Wnion,
Fal de ral de roo, doo ree ri ti toh!
There a moment lightly hover,
Fal de ral de roo, de ri ti yoh,
O'er the home of my true lover,
Fal de ral de roo, de ri ti yoh!

3. Cuckoo dear, if there you find him,
Fal de ral de roo, doo ree ri ti toh,
Sad of cheer, oh perch behind him,
Fal de ral de roo, doo ree ri ti toh!
Then a Springtide carol sing him,
Fal de ral de roo, de ri ti yoh,
That shall hope and comfort bring him,
Fal de ral de roo, de ri ti yoh!

Gwcw fach, ond wyf ti'n ffolog
Ffal di ral di rw dw ri ral tai to!
Canu 'mhlith yr eithin pigog
Ffal di ral di rw dw ri rai tai to,
Dos i blwy Dolgelle dirion,
Ffal dir ral di rw, di rai tai to.
Ti gei yno, lwyni gwryrddion
Ffal di ral di rw, dw ri rai tai to.

2. Gwcw fach ehed yn union
Ffal di ral di rw dw ri ral tai to!
Tau glan yr afon Wnion
Ffal di ral di rw dw ri rai tai to,
Ar dy aden aros ennyd
Ffal dir ral di rw, di rai tai to.
Wrth aneddle fy anwylyd
Ffal di ral di rw, dw ri rai tai to.

3. Gwcw fach, os yno gweli
Ffal di ral di rw dw ri ral tai to!
Rywun wyla'r dwr yn heli,
Ffal di ral di rw dw ri rai tai to,
Cana gān y gwanwyn iddo,
Ffal dir ral di rw, di rai tai to.
Cān o obaith i'w gysuro.
Ffal di ral di rw, dw ri rai tai to.
