Original text and translations

French.png French text

A qui me dois je bien retenir, puisque mon ami m’a laissée,
Nuit et jour ne fais que pleurer comme femme tant désolée,
Je puis maudire la journée, où une fois je l’ai aimé si fort,
Dont je vous promets qu’il a grand tort.

English.png English translation

What do I care, since my love has left me,
Night and day I but weep as a forlorn woman,
I can curse the day, that once I loved him so fiercely,
For which I promise he has made a grave mistake.

Translation by Michael Nick
