Llew Tegid

Where have you been wand'ring,
Kind old man?
Kind old man, man, man
man, man, man, man.
The kindest man alive.
I went out a-fishin', boys.
Chorus:
Fal dee ree dee ri doh,
Fal dee ree dee riddle o,
fal dee ree dee ri doh.

2. What have you been getting,
Kind old man?
Kind old man, man, man
man, man, man, man.
The kindest man alive.
I caught two fine flatfish, boys.
Chorus:

3. Where had you a wetting,
Kind old man?
Kind old man, man, man
man, man, man, man.
The kindest man alive.
I fell in the river, boys.
Chorus:

4. What makes you shiver,
Kind old man?
Kind old man, man, man
man, man, man, man.
The kindest man alive.
A cold from the water, boys.
Chorus:

5. What if you were to die,
Kind old man?
Kind old man, man, man
man, man, man, man.
The kindest man alive.
O, then, you'll bury me, boys.
Chorus:

6. Where would you be buried,
Kind old man?
Kind old man, man, man
man, man, man, man.
The kindest man alive.
Beneath the old hearthstone, boys.
Chorus:

7. Why beneath the hearthstone,
Kind old man?
Kind old man, man, man
man, man, man, man.
The kindest man alive.
To hear the porridge, bubble, boys.
Chorus:
