Geiriau:
Welis i 'rioed ddeigryn
ar rudd yr un forforwyn,
rwan dwi'n dallt
pam fod dwr y môr mor hallt.

Glywist ti 'rioed g'lana
yn torri ar y tonna?
Rwan ti'n dyst
pam fod swn y môr mor drist

Edrych di, edrych di,
o dan y dwr mawr du,
'nghariad i sydd yno'n huno
ar ei gefn, ar ei gefn
o dan y garreg lefn
o na bawn inna yno.

Deimlist ti 'rioed dywod
yn llithro drwy y gofod
rhwng dwy law,
a ma'r llanw mawr gerllaw?

Cod o dy wely,
anadla'r haul a'r heli,
rhwyfa'n gry
ar for dy fywyd di.

Edrych di, edrych di,
o dan y dwr mawr du,
'nghariad i sydd yno'n huno
ar ei gefn, ar ei gefn
o dan y garreg lefn
o na bawn inna yno.
o na bawn inna yno.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
I never once saw a tear
on the cheek of a mermaid,
now I understand
why the sea-water is so salty.

Have you ever heard the shore
breaking on the waves?
Now you are witness
as to why the sound of the sea is so sad.

Look you, look you,
under the deep black water,
there my lover slumbers
on his back, on his back
under the smooth stone
oh if only I could go there.

Have you ever felt sand
slipping through the space
between two hands
and the vast tide close by?

Arise from your bed,
breathe in the sun and salt water,
strongly row
on the sea of your life.

Look you, look you,
under the deep black water,
there my lover slumbers
on his back, on his back
under the smooth stone
oh if only I could go there.
oh if only I could go there.
