"The Bells of Rhymney" as written by and Idris Davies Pete Seeger....
Oh what will you give me
Say the sad bells of Rhymney
Is there hope for the future
Cry the brown bells of Merthyr
Who made the mine owner
Say the black bells of Rhondda
And who robbed the miner
Cry the grim bells of Blaina

They will plunder willy-nilly
Cry the cells of Caerphilly
They have fangs, they have teeth
Say the loud bells of Neathe
Even God is uneasy
Say the moist bells of Swansea
They will plunder willy-nilly
Cry the bells of Caerphilly
Put the vandals in court
Say the bells of Newport
All would be well if, if, if
Cry the green bells of Cardiff
Why so worried, sisters, why
Sang the silver bells of Wye
And what will you give me
Say the sad bells of Rhymney
