Original text and translations

French.png French text

Allons, allons gay, gaiement, ma mignonne, vous et moi.
Mon père a fait faire un château, d'or et d'argent sont les carreaux.
Le roi n'en a pas de plus beau, allons, gay, ma mignonne,
vous et moi.

Come gaily, gaily, my pretty one, you and I.
My father’s built a castle, with bricks of gold and silver.
The king has not one so fair, come gaily my beauty,
you and I.
