Original text and translations

French.png French text

De tant aimer, mon coeur se lasse
par quoi il me convient que ce train là change
et que des dames tout m'écarte
car mon argent et mon corps s'épuisent.

English.png English translation

My heart grows weary of loving so much,
so I must change my ways
and be separated from these ladies:
for I am running out of money and my body is exhausted.
