Amour amour tu es par trop cruelle
Quant tes amants il ne pensent qu'a bien
Tu ne sais rien mais mon coeur le sait bien
Amour me prend c'est chose naturelle

English.png English translation

O Love, o love, you are by far too cruel
For when your lovers think in love to dwell
You help them not, but my poor heart knows well
To fall in love is not to be a fool.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
