Full and good looking was the gentleman,
Who waited for me in the lane !
I repent that I did not go with him.

A splendid gentleman was he,
Who waited for me in the hall !
I regret that I did not accompany him.

Over my embroidered upper robe, I have put on a [plain] single garment ;
Over my embroidered lower robe, I have done the same.
O Sir, O Sir,
Have your carriage ready to take me home with you.

Over my embroidered lower robe, I have put on a [plain] single garment ;
Over my embroidered upper robe, I have done the same.
O Sir, O Sir,
Have your carriage ready to take me home with you.

Legge 88

Ô toi, Seigneur de belle mine,
qui m'as attendue dans la rue !...
Hélas ! que ne t'ai-je suivi !...

Ô toi, Seigneur de belle taille,
Qui m'as attendue dans la salle !...
Hélas ! que ne t'ai-je suivi !...

En robe à fleurs, en robe simple,
en jupe à fleurs, en jupe simple,
Allons, messieurs ! allons, messieurs !
en char menez-moi avec vous !

En jupe à fleurs, en jupe simple,
en robe à fleurs, en robe simple,
Allons, messieurs ! allons, messieurs !
en char emmenez-moi chez vous !
