Original text and translations

French.png French text

M'amie a eu de dieu le don,
Que de beauté elle rien n'attache:
Les deux yeux blancs comme un charbon,
Les tétins ronds comme une vache.
Au jeu d'amours elle n'est point lâche,
A tous les coups je suis vaincu.
Je veux bien hardiment qu'on sache
Que je n'ai peur d'etre cocu.

English.png English translation

My g.f. has had the gift of god;
looks-wise she's all there:
Her two peepers like nutty slack,
Round nipples like a cow's.
She's no slouch when it comes to nookie:
I come off second best every time.
I really want folks to know
That I don't have a fear of being cuckolded.

(Trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
