Twice a year the holly king and oak king battle for day and night....

Lyrics

All around this winter's town
The wind does blow, the wind does sound
Here beneath the bearded sky
The old man he does smile
The old man he does smile

Cysga di fy mhlentyn tlws
Cysga di fy mhlentyn tlws
Cysga di fy mhlentyn tlws
Cei gysgu tan y bore
Cei gysgu tan y bore
(Translation: Go to sleep my pretty child)
(Sleep until the morning)

Once twice born we're on our way
The days grow tall, the night wears away
And here i hold the flower maid
As if my own heart beating
As if my own heart beating

The Oak King and the Holly King
Once again are battling
The victor will restore the spring
But i still hear the wind whistling
I hear the wind whistling
