Original text and translations

French.png French text

Vous ne l’aurez pas si je puis
Ce que m’avez requis d’avoir
Et eussiez-vous autant d’avoir
Qu’il en pourrait dedans un puits.
Note: The Susato 1545 edition has "porroit", probably from "pourrir", to rot.

English.png English translation

You will not have it if I can help it,
that which you demand from me.
And should you have as much as you desire,
may it rot deep down in a hole in the ground.
