Au ioli bois sur la verdure
De mon ami ie fus troussée
D'en avoir regrets ie n'ay cure
De lui suis bien recompensée
Car pour abatre la rousée
En me faisant le joli sobre fault
Il est gaillard point ne suis abusée
Quand le bon vin point ne lui fault

Au joli bois, sur la verdure
De mon ami je fus troussée.
D'en avoir regrets je n'ai cure:
De lui suis bien recompensée ;
Car pour abattre la rosée,
En me faisant le joli soubresaut,
Il est gaillard, point ne suis abusée,
Quand le bon vin point ne lui faut.

English.png English translation

On the green sward in the picturesque wood
I was tumbled by my b.f.
Regrets? Too few to mention:
I am well pleased with him;
'Cause, when flattening the dew,
And me going great shakes,
He was a right toy-boy (unless I'm very much mistaken!)
And didn't need Dutch courage.

(trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
