Quand l'ennuy facheux vous prend
N'attendez point qu'il entame
Votre beauté dont despend
Le plaisir plus doux que basme.

Venez, et je soys infame
S'en riant ne vous guéris.
J'ay du passetems, madame,
pour dix.

If you feel the sorrow setting in,
do not wait for it to overcome
your beauty, which is the source
of pleasure sweeter than balm.

Come to me, and I'll be damned
if I do not cure your sorrow with a laugh.
I have tricks up my sleeve, my lady,
that would cure ten like you.
