    LYRICS - Goldfinger:
    Goldfinger 
    He's the man, the man with the Midas touch 
    A spider's touch 
    Such a cold finger 
    Beckons you to enter his web of sin 
    But don't go in 
    
    Golden words he will pour in your ear 
    But his lies can't disguise what you fear 
    For a golden girl knows when he's kissed her 
    It's the kiss of death ... 
    
    From Mister Goldfinger 
    Pretty girl, beware of his heart of gold 
    This heart is cold 
    
    Golden words he will pour in your ear 
    But his lies can't disguise what you fear 
    For a golden girl knows when he's kissed her 
    It's the kiss of death ... 
    
    From Mister Goldfinger 
    Pretty girl, beware of his heart of gold 
    This heart is cold 
    He loves only gold 
    Only gold 
    He loves gold 
    He loves only gold 
    Only gold 
    He loves gold
    
    LYRICS:
    Diamonds are forever 
    They are all I need to please me 
    They can stimulate and tease me 
    They won't leave in the night, I've no fear that they might desert me 
    Diamonds are forever 
    Hold one up and then caress it 
    Touch it, stroke it and undress it 
    I can see every part, nothing hides in the heart to hurt me 
    
    I don't need love 
    For what good will love do me? 
    Diamonds never lie to me 
    For when love's gone 
    They'll lustre on 
    
    Diamonds are forever 
    Sparkling round my little finger 
    Unlike men, the diamonds linger 
    Men are mere mortals who are not worth going to your grave for 
    
    I don't need love 
    For what good will love do me? 
    Diamonds never lie to me 
    For when love's gone 
    They'll lustre on 
    
    Diamonds are forever, forever, forever 
    Diamonds are forever, forever, forever 
    Forever and ever
    
    LYRICS - Land of My Fathers (ENGLISH Translation)
    Note: The English translation does not rhyme with the musical lyrics....However, it gives one who speaks only English an idea of what the beautiful Wales Anthem words mean)
    
    This land of my fathers is dear to me
    Land of poets and singers, and people of stature
    Her brave warriors, fine patriots
    Shed their blood for freedom
    
    Land! Land! I am true to my land!
    As long as the sea serves as a wall for this pure, dear land
    May the language endure for ever.
    
    Old land of the mountains, paradise of the poets,
    Every valley, every cliff a beauty guards;
    Through love of my country, enchanting voices will be
    Her streams and rivers to me.
    
    Though the enemy have trampled my country underfoot,
    The old language of the Welsh knows no retreat,
    The spirit is not hindered by the treacherous hand
    Nor silenced the sweet harp of my land.

    1. OPINION:

      IT SEEMS THAT THE WELSH LANGUAGE SEEMS TO HAVE A TENDENCY TO PRODUCE A POWERFULLY BEAUTIFUL TONE OF VOICE.

      IT REMINDS ONE OF THAT OF RICHARD BURTON'S.

      WELSH LANGUAGE: POWERFUL AND SOLID, AND TUNEFUL MOLD OF SOUND OF VOICE.
