French.png French text

Tant qu'en amours tu sera ma maistresse
et que mon cueur soubz ton povoir sera,
il languira et pour devis aura,
jamais joyeulx mais tousjours en tristesse.

Modern French
Tant qu’en amour tu seras ma maîtresse
et que mon coeur sera sous ton pouvoir,
il languira et jamais n’aura de souhait joyeux,
mais sera tousjours en tristesse.

As long as you will be my mistress in love
and my heart is under your command
it will suffer and never know joy
but it will always be sorrowful.
