Original text and translations

French.png French text

Damours me vient tout a rebours
ja ne fault que cela mente.
Iay refus en lieu de secours.
Mamye rit e ie lamente.
Cest la cause pour quoy ie chante.
Damours me vient tout a rebours.

Modern French
D'amour me vient à contresens,
il ne faut que cela mente.
J'ai refus au lieu de secours.
Mon amie rit et je lamente.
C'est la cause pourquoi je chante.
D'amour me vient à contresens.

English.png English translation

Love has turned its back on me,
there's no denying in that.
I've found refusal instead of solace.
My friend is laughing while I weep.
Hence this song of mine:
Love has turned its back on me.
