Can / Song: Mae'r Saesneg yn Esensial ("The English is Essential")
Canwr / Singer: Dafydd Iwan

Geiriau:
"O mae'r Saesneg yn esensial" meddan nhw,
"A'r heniaith yn ddymunol" meddan nhw.
Pa bynnag swydd a geisiwch,
Pa bynnag waith y dymunwch,
Yr unig gymhwyster cofiwch yw'r iaith fain.

Does neb yn eich rhwystro rhag siarad Cymraeg,
Mae hon yn wlad rhydd i bob gwr a phob gwraig,
A chyfraith Lloegr yw'r gyfraith orau'n bod...

Fe gewch ganmol y Gymraeg fel canmol jwg ar seld
Ond fe gewch hi'n hanfod, ac fe gewch chi weld
Fe gewch eich cosbi gan y 'Race Relations Board'

"O mae'r Saesneg yn Esensial" meddan nhw,
"A'r heniaith yn ddymunol" meddan nhw.
Pa bynnag swydd a geisiwch,
Pa bynnag waith y dymunwch,
Yr unig gymhwyster cofiwch yw'r iaith fain.

O mae'n rŵd dros ben i fynnu siarad eich iaith,
Yng ngwydd y Sais a ddaeth o bellter maith,
I leddfu di-boblogi ac i hybu economi'r fro.

Ac mae'n bryd i ni ddysgu mae ein fraint i gyd
Yw siarad yr iaith sy'n cael ei siarad drwy'r byd
Felly plygwn gyda'n gilydd i lyfu'i 'sgidiau fo!

"O mae'r Saesneg yn esensial" meddan nhw,
"A'r heniaith yn ddymunol" meddan nhw.
Pa bynnag swydd a geisiwch,
Pa bynnag waith y dymunwch,
Yr unig gymhwyster cofiwch yw'r iaith fain.

"Mae'r Saesneg yn esensial" meddan nhw,
"A'r heniaith yn desirable" meddan nhw.
Pa bynnag swydd a geisiwch,
Pa bynnag job y dymunwch,
Yr unig gymhwyster cofiwch,
Yr unig gymhwyster cofiwch,
Yr unig gymhwyster cofiwch, yw'r iaith fain.
Lyrics/English Translation:

"Oh the English is essential" or so they say,
"And the ancient language is pleasant" or so they say.
In any job you seek,
In any work you desire,
Remember, the only qualification needed is an English tongue.

Nobody's stopping you from speaking Welsh,
This is a free land for any woman or man,
And the laws of England are the best laws in the world...

You may praise the Welsh like praising a jug on a dresser
And if you find her essential and you will see
That you will be punished by the 'Race Relations Board'.

"Oh the English is essential" or so they say,
"And the ancient language is pleasant" or so they say.
In any job you seek,
In any work you desire,
The only qualification needed is an English tongue.

Oh it's a rude thing to insist on speaking your language,
In the eyes of the Englishman who came from so far,
To improve depopulation and to promote the local economy.

And it's time we all learnt that it's an honour and privilege
To speak the language that's spoken worldwide
So let's kneel together to lick his boots!

"Oh the English is essential" or so they say,
"And the ancient language is pleasant" or so they say.
In any job you seek,
In any work you desire,
The only qualification needed is an English tongue.

"Oh the English is essential" or so they say,
"And the ancient language is pleasant" or so they say.
In any job you seek,
In any work you desire,
The only qualification needed,
The only qualification needed,
The only qualification needed is an English tongue.
