Le content est riche en ce monde
Et bien heureux en ce temps ci.
À cœur joyeux, liberté, monde,
vivre chez soi hors de souci.

Être amoureux non point transi.
Et à tous deuil clore les yeux.
Toujours, gaillards, faites ainsi
Et vous vivrez cent ans et mieux.

English.png English translation

The contented is rich in this world
and happy in this time.
With merry heart, free and pure,
he lives at home without concern.

Be in love but not lovesick.
And to all mourning close your eyes.
Always, fellows, do so
and you will live a hundred years and more.
