English Translation

I am a sturdy Cardiganshire man,
Just arrived from the country,
I’m a boss on the coal-face
Earning more than my dad.

Each to his own pleasure
And me happy and healthy
A drop, now and then
Of small yellow beer.

I have a good axe
Although it’s edge is blunt,
And a sledge and mandral
And four mandrals for cutting.

I can cut he coal exactly
I can cut badly
I can dig underneath
And fill four trams.

I am an old collier
Coming home so black
Using as much soap
As a housewife would wish.

I earn a fair sum of money
And all of which I store
And when the aplle-month comes
I head for the sea-water.
