Adieu m'amour et mon desir,
De vous je prens departement;
Si je vous ay fait des plaisir,
Passant vostre commandement,
Pardonnez moi joyeusement:
J'ay mis mon cueur a si grant paine
A vous servir loyallement,
Helas, helas! J'ay bien perdu ma paine,
Helas, helas! J'ay bien perdu ma paine.

Farewell my love and my desire
Of you I take my leave;
If I have displeased you,
Failling[sic] your commands,
Pardon me happily I set my heart to serve you,
I set my heart to serve you,
Alas! Alas! I have truly wasted my labour.
