Ung peu plus hault ung peu plus bas mon amy je vous prie
Laultrier iouer mal loye En nostre iardinet

Ung peu plus hault ung peu plus bas mon amy je vous prie

Un peu plus haut, un peu plus bas, mon ami je vous prie.
L'autre jour m'allaie en nostre jardinet;
Trouvai en mi ma voie Mon ami Robinet,
Lequel m'a pris à grand souhait sans nulle fâcherie.
Je lui ai dit de cœeur de hait: "Accollez vostre amie".
Un peu plus haut, un peu plus bas,mon ami je vous prie.

A bit higher, a bit lower, please mate.
So the other day I was going to our garden,
And on the way there, I bump into my mate Robbie,
(Who well excites me - no messing!).
Says to him leching: "Hook up with your g.f.".
A bit higher, a bit lower, please mate.
