Rossignollet qui chante
Vat’en a mon amy dire,
qu’il se contente
& que c’est mon attente,
De mourir auec luy.

Nachtigall, die du da singst,
geh hin zu meinem Liebsten,
sage ihm, er solle sich begnügen,
und dass es meine Erwartung ist,
mit ihm zu sterben.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Nightingale singing,
go to my lover
to tell him to be content,
ant hat it is my expectaion
to die with him.
