Hob Y Derry Dando


Wyt ti'n hoffi dyri, Derwydd?
Hob y deri dando
Unwaith oerais i o'th herwydd
Dyna ganu eto
Ym mhob ardal y mae brydôn
Canig hen y co'
Pwy na allant ddweud penillion
Hen gân co'
Canig hen y co'
Hob y deri dan y to.

Buom unwaith yn gariadon
Hob y deri dando
Ti a geisiasist dorri 'nghalon
Dyna ganu eto
Am funudyn pwy fu'n
Hidio druan am dy dro?
Deri dando, wyt ti'n gwrando
Hen gân co'?
Canig hen y co'
Hob y deri dan y to.














Joy upon Thy Bright Cheek Dances


Low the hills in the ocean lie
Hob y derry dando
That hide Meirion from my eye
Hob y derry dando
One fond view, oh let me take
Down derry down
Ere my longing heart will break
Down, down, hie derry down
My darling Mary do not frown
Down, down, hie derry down
My darling Mary do not frown.

O'er the seas hath flown my heart
Hob y derry dando
O'er the seas my sighs depart
Hob y derry dando
O'er the seas must she be sought
Down derry down
Who lives always in my thought
Down, down, hie derry down
My darling Mary do not frown
Down, down, hie derry down
My darling Mary do not frown.

A comely youth I once caressed
Hob y derry dando
Another fair, his heart possessed
Hob y derry dando
But hers, already given, he lost
Down derry down
Were ever three so sadly crossed
Down, down, hie derry down
My darling Mary do not frown
Down, down, hie derry down
My darling Mary do not frown.
