Cyfri'r Geifr (Trad. arr. Here Be Dragons)

I learned this traditional Welsh song in school. So long ago I can't remember when.

The band first played it at the Conwy Festival in 1997 and has become a favourite of the band's live set.

It's a song about counting goats.

Oes gafr eto?
Oes heb ei godro?
Ar y creigiau geirwon
Mae'r hen afr yn crwydro

Gafr wen, wen, wen
Ie, finwen, finwen, finwen
Foel gynffonwen, foelgynffonwen
Yslys wen a chynffon
wen, wen, wen

Ddu, finwddu, gynffonddu

Felyn, finwfelyn, gynffonfelyn

Goch, finwgoch, gynffongoch

las, finwlas, gynffonlas
