Si vous navez aultre desir
sans avoir mal desplaisir
puisqu'en avez la volunte
et que cest pour vostre santé
faire'en povez vostre plaisir

Modern French

Si vous n'avez autre désir
sans nul problème
puisque vous en avez l'envie
et que c'est pour votre santé.
Vous pouvez en faire votre plaisir.

English.png English translation

If this is your only wish
then make nothing of it
and go ahead with your desire.
Since it will benefit your health,
enjoy it as much as you like.

Note: This chanson is a "chanson réponce" or musical answer to an earlier chanson by Josquin, where the main character complains that he dare not indulge in any pleasures.
