This is a song about Lisa fach yr Hendre (Little Lisa of Hendre) who loses her lover and tries find another.

Hen Ferchetan

Hen ferchetan wedi colli'i chariad
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro
Cael un arall, dyna oedd ei bwriad
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro
Ond nid oedd un o lanciau'r pentre
Ffol-di rol-dol-di rol-di ro
Am briodi Lisa fach yr Hendre
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro

Hen ferchetan sydd yn dal i dreio
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro
Gwisgo lasys sidan ac ymbincio
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro
Ond er bod brân i bob brân yn rhywle
Ffol-di rol-dol-di rol-di ro
Nid oes neb i Lisa fach yr Hendre
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro

Hen ferchetan bron â thori'i chalon
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro
Mynd i'r llan mae pawb o'i hen gariadon
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro
Bydd tatws newydd ar bren 'falau
Ffol-di rol-dol-di rol-di ro
Cyn priodith Lisa fach yr Hendre
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro

Hen ferchetan aeth i Ffair y Bala
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro
Gweld Siôn Prys yn fachgen digon smala
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro
Gair a ddywedodd wrth fynd adre'
Ffol-di rol-dol-di rol-di ro
Gododd galon Lisa fach yr Hendre
Ffol-di rol-di rol-lol ffol-di rol-di ro

Hen Ferchetan

An old maid lost her lover
To get another one, that was her plan
But not one of the village lads
wanted to marry Little Lisa of Hendre

The old maid keeps on trying
Wearing satin laces and make-up
But while there's a crow for every crow somewhere
There's no one for Little Lisa of Hendre

The old maid's heart is nearly broken
All her former lovers are getting married
There'll be new potatoes on apple trees
Before Lisa fach yr Little Lisa of Hendre

The old maid went to Bala Fair
Saw Siôn Prys, quite a droll lad
A word he said as he went home
Raised the heart of Little Lisa of Hendre
