Lyrics:
What will you give me?
Say the sad bells of Rhymney
Is there hope for the future?
Say the brown bells of Merthyr
Who made the mine open?
Say the black bells of Rhondda
And who killed the miner?
Say the grim bells of Blaina

Who defends us in court?
Say the bells of Newport
All will be well if if if...
Say the green bells of Cardiff
Why so worried, sister, why?
Say the silver bells of Wye
What will you give me?
Say the sad bells of Rhymney

Oh what will you give me?
Say the sad bells of Rhymney
Is there hope for the future
Say the brown bells of Merthyr
Who made the mine open?
Say the black bells of Rhondda
And who killed the miner?
Say the black bells of Blaina

Ahhh
