English Translation
An old maid lost her lover
To get another one was her plan
But there wasn't one of the village boys
Who wanted to marry Lisa fach yr Hendre

So the old maid keeps on trying
All dolled up in satin lace and make-up
But eventhough every raven finds his mate somewhere
There's no one for Lisa fach yr Hendre

The old maid's heart is nearly broken
Everyone of her lovers has married
There'll be new potatoes on apple trees
Before Lisa fach yr Hendre will marry

The old maid went to the the Bala Fair
Saw Sin Prys a cute lad
A word he said as he went home
Lisa fach yr Hendre's heavy heart was lightened
