Voicy le bon temps que chascun s'apreste
D'aller sur les champs pour luy faire feste
Sur la gaye herbete en nous deduysant
d'une chansonnete faisons luy present.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
Fair weather smiles upon us this fine day,
The meadows beckon one and all away
To take their pleasure in a merry throng
And celebrate this season with a song.
