"Ar C'horred" is a Breton song about Dwarves. Whenever you see the days of the week in the song, they're supposed to be sung by the dwarves. You can read a Breton tale about this song of the dwarves called, The Two Hunchbacks and The Korrigans.

This song comes from a book called Barzaz Breiz (nowadays spelled Barzhaz Breizh) which is the collection of popular Brittany songs.
