Seren Cymru A’r Byd It is written in stone Seren Cymru A’r Byd; Memorial to a legend One so graced to succeed. That stone tells that very story How his world there was won; Treasured in the vaults of time now forever Port Talbot’s first son. Born of humble beginnings Richard Jenkins his name; With a voice so eloquently commanding Of one so destined for fame. The Spirit of Burton Roams this here fair land; Where the ghosts of a thousand Welsh choirs Make this their last stand. An acting sensation First prince of South Wales; From Pontrhydyfen, Cwmafan, and down through the valleys We shall speak of these tales. Richard Burton our proud Welsh legend That name speaks of fine wine; Seren Cymru A’r Byd Shines that star for all time.
