NB: Due to the spelling of the medieval J like I and U like V, we can read the first words (Iuuons beau ieu) as modern 'Jouons beau jeu' (Let's play fair play)

Jouons beau jeu tout en riant,
si faisons bonne chere,
Et si buvons le vin friant
Laissant melancholye,
Mais en buvant soyons dehet, (dehait)
Chantans la chansonette,
Disans par amourette
Jouons beau jeu tout en riant.
En courtinette.
