Adieu m'amour et mon désir,
de vous je prens departement.
Si je vous ay fait desplaisir,
passant vostre commandement,
pardonnez moi joyeusement:
j'ay mis mon cueur à si grant paine
à vous servir loyalement --
helas! helas! j'ay bien perdu ma paine. (2x)

English.png English translation

Farewell, my love and my desire;
of you I take my leave.
If I have displeased you,
disregarding (?) your commands,
pardon me happily:
I have put my heart at such pains
to serve you loyally --
alas! alas! -- I have well wasted my trouble.
