Robin Ddiog

This is a Welsh nursery rhyme, and also a dance.

Tŷ bach twt

Mae gen i dipyn o dŷ bach twt
o dŷ bach twt, o dŷ bach twt
Mae gen i dipyn o dŷ bach twt
A'r gwynt i'r drws bob bore

Hey di ho di hey di hey di ho
A'r gwynt i'r drws bob bore

Agorwch dipyn o gil y drws
o gil y drws, o gil y drws
Agorwch dipyn o gil y drws
Cewch gweld y môr a'r tonnau.

Hey di ho di hey di hey di ho
Cewch gweld y môr a'r tonnau.

Ac yma byddaf yn llon fy myd
yn llon fy myd, yn llon fy myd
Ac yma byddaf yn llon fy myd
A'r gwynt i'r drws bob bore

Hey di ho di hey di hey di ho
A'r gwynt i'r drws bob bore

Lazy Robin

I have a little tidy house,
a tidy little house, a tidy little house,
I have a little tidy house,
With the wind blowing to its door each morning.

Hey di ho di hey di hey di ho
With the wind blowing to its door each morning.

Open the door a little bit,
a little bit, a little bit,
Open the door a little bit
So that I can see the sea and the waves.

Hey di ho di hey di hey di ho
So that I can see the sea and the waves.

And here I'll be happy and content
happy and content, happy and content,
And here I'll be happy and content
With the wind blowing to the door each morning.

Hey di ho di hey di hey di ho
With the wind blowing to its door each morning.
