Please help correct lyrics I am writing in Welsh. Thank you!

Can I please get some help correcting lyrics I wrote? Someone was kind enough to correct them, however I checked multiple platforms and cannot seem to locate the corrections. (I also posted this question to Slack; this is a crosspost.) Diolch!

Audiovisual link to partial song (and cat video!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLLBJe0XmpU

Lyrics:
Dw i’n caru y ti
Dw i’n caru y ti
Dw i’n caru, Dw i’n caru, Dw i’n caru y ti

Dw i’n caru fy’n nhgath
Dw i’n caru fy’n nghath
Dw i’n caru, Dw i’n caru, Dw i’n caru fy’n nghath
Dw i’n caru, Dw i’n caru fy’n nghath Nicki.

Dw i’n caru y chi
Dw i’n caru y chi
Dw i’n caru, Dw i’n caru, Dw i’n caru y chi

Dw i’n caru Cymru
Dw i’n caru Cymru
Dw i’n caru, Dw i’n caru, Dw i’n caru Cymru

Dw i’n caru y ti
Dw i’n caru Nicki
Dw i’n caru Cymru
Dw i’n caru y chi

Translation:

(informal)
I love you
I love you
I love, I love, I love you.

I love my cat.
I love my cat.
I love, I love, I love my cat
I love, I love my cat Nicki.

I love Wales
I love Wales
I love, I love, I love Wales.

I love you (informal)
I love Nicki
I love Wales
I love you (all/formal)

I’ve also put this on your Slack post (I saw it there first), but I’ll post it again here for others that may be reading the thread.

Dw i’n caru y ti should be Dwi’n dy garu di.
Dw i’n caru fy’n nhgath should be Dwi’n caru fy nghath.
Dw i’n caru y chi (plural/formal) should be Dwi’n eich caru chi .

These may change the ‘scan’ of your song though, as the corrections have syllables and stresses in different places to the way you sang your words. Good luck with the project - I hope you can still make it work :slightly_smiling_face:

Diolch yn fawr Siaron. I looked all over for the corrections and did not think to check my IMs. I applied the corrections and re-recorded the song.
