"International Velvet" as written by and Powell/richards/jones/matthews/roberts....
Deffrwch Cymry cysgld gwlad why gan
Dwfn yw'r gwendid
Bychan yw why fflam
Creulon yw'r cynhaeaf
Ond per yw'r don
â??Da' alaw'r alarch unig
yn fy mron
Everyday when I wake up
I thank the lord I'm Welsh
Gwledd o fedd gynhyrfodd Gymraes swil
Darganfyddais gwir baradwys Rhyl
Everyday when I wake up
I thank the lord I'm Welsh


(English translation)

Awaken sleepy Wales, land of song
Deep is the weakness, small is the flame
Cruel is the harvest, but fair is the tune
With the song of the lonely swan in my heart

Every day when I wake up I thank the Lord I'm Welsh

A feast of mead invigourated a shy Welshwoman
I discovered the true paradise of Rhyl

Every day when I wake up I thank the lord I'm Welsh

Awaken sleepy Wales, land of song
Deep is the weakness, small is the flame
