Original text and translations

French.png French text

Souvent je m'esbas et mon cueur est marry,
et vis en dueil et en grand desplaisance
tout te les fois que j'ay en souvenance
de la belle qui vers moy a failly.

Modern French
Souvent je m’ébats
et mon cœur est marri.
Je vis en deuil et en déplaisir
toutes les fois que je me rappelle
la belle qui a manqué à son devoir envers moi.

English.png English translation

I often frolic
with a merry heart.
But I mourn and suffer
each time I have to remember
the beautiful girl that didn't live up
to what she owed me.
