Original text and translations

French.png French text

Il estoit une religieuse
De l’Ordre de l’Ave Maria
Qui d’un Pater estoit tant amoureuse
Que son gent corps avec le sien lya.

L’abesse vint demandant qu’il y a.
Lors respondirent l’un et l’autre
Le Pater et l’Ave Maria
Sont enfiléz en une Patenostre.

English.png English translation

In years gone by there was a holy nun
From the Order of Hail Mary
Whose love for a Father was so wanton
That the two to bed themselves did carry.

What’s up, the Abbess asked, her voice wary.
And they answered, all a-bother
The Father and the Hail Mary
Are joined together in one Our Father.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
