Mi welais Jac y do
I Saw a Jackdaw
Children's Song
(Welsh)
Children's Song
(English)

Mi welais Jac y do
Yn eistedd ar ben to,
Het wen ar ei ben
A dwy goes bren,
ho ho ho ho ho ho!

I saw a jackdaw
Sitting on a roof top
A white hat on his head
And two wooden legs
Ho ho ho ho ho ho!

Notes

Here's a slightly different translation:

I saw Jack Daw
Sitting on the roof
White hat on his head
And two wooden legs
Hohohoho!
