French.png French text

Dictes pourquoy vostre amitie s'efface.
O cueur ingrat soubz angelique face.
Dictes le moy car scavoir ne le puis
tousjours loyal ay este et le suis.

Modern French
Dites pourquoi votre amitié s'efface.
O cœur ingrat sous angélique face.
Dites-le moi car je ne puis le savoir.
Toujours loyal j'ai été et le suis.

English.png English translation

Tell me why our friendship withers,
ungrateful heart underneath that angel face.
Tell me, since I do not know:
I have always been faithful to you, as I am now.
