English Translation
Little chuckoo, aren’t you foolish
Sitting in the prickly gorse.
Go to fair Dolgellau
Where you’ll find green bushes.

Little cuckoo, fly at once
Towards the River Wnion,
Wait a second as you wing
Near where my love is.

Little cuckoo,if you see there
One who weeps salty water,
Sing the song of spring to him
A song of hope to comfort him.
