Original text and translations

French.png French text

Baisez-moi tant, tant, fringuez-moi tant, tant,
je vous prie.
J'y serai votre amie.

Au joli bois je rencontrai mamie,
au beau vert bois je rencontrai mamie,
elle m'a dit tout bois en souriant:
"Baisez moi tant tant, fringuez moi tant tant,
mon amie je vous prie;
Baisez moi tant tant, fringuez moi tant tant,
si serai vôtre amie."

English.png English translation

"Kiss me lots, frisk me lots,
I beg you, love;
If I am to be your g.f".

In the delightful wood, the pleasant greenwood,
I meet my lover.
She says to me smiling
"Kiss me lots, frisk me lots,
I beg you, love;
Kiss me lots, frisk me lots
If I am to be your g.f".

(Trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
