Lyrics

Dw i'n eistedd yma
Ac dw i'n gwylio'r dŵr
Fel plentyn ro'n i'n nofio 'ma
Ond mae llawer o blastig yn llenwi y dŵr

Yn nyddiau fy nhaid
Tarddiad bywyd oedd dŵr yr afon
Roedd y dŵr i'w yfed ac yn llawn pysgod
Ond rŵan mae llawer o blastig yn y dŵr

Does dim byd y medra'i wneud
I atal hyn rhag digwydd?
Does dim byd y medra'i wneud
I arbed ein planed?

Medra i ond dechrau hefo mi fy hun
A cheisio wneud llai o'r pethau drwg dw i'n wneud
Ceisio ailgylchu a chodi sbwriel
Ac dw i'n ceisio helpu pawb

Dw i'n synnu os bydd ein plant
Yn gwylio'r dŵr 'ma
Ac dw i isio i ddŵr yr afon medru
Bod yn lân ac yn iach – eto!

English translation

Here I sit
And look across the water
I used to swim here as a child
But there's a lot of plastics filling the water

In the days of my forefathers
The water of the river was the source of life
The water was drinkable and full of fish
But nowadays the water of the river is filled with plastic.

Is there nothing I could do
To stop what's happening?
Is there nothing I could do
To save our planet?

The only thing I can do is to start with myself
And try to do less of the bad things that I do
Recycle, pick up litter and take care of what I can
And give everyone a helping hand

I wonder if our children
Will have a chance to see this water
And I deeply wish that the water of the river
could be pure and fresh – again!
