French.png French text

Je suis déshéritée,
Puisque j’ai perdu mon ami.
Seulett' il m’a laissée,
Pleine de pleurs et de souci.
Rossignol du bois joli,
Sans point faire demeurée,
Va t‘en dire à mon ami
Que pour lui suis tourmentée.

English.png English translation

I am dispossessed
Since I have lost my sweetheart.
He has left me alone
Full of sorrow and care.
Pretty nightingale of the woods,
Without further demur
Go and tell my sweetheart
That I yearn for him.
