Petite nymphe folastre,
Nymphette que j'idolastre,
Ma mignonne dont les yeulx
Logent mon pis et mon mieux
Ma doulcette ma succrée,
Ma grace, ma citherée,
Tu me doibs, pour m'appaiser,
Mille fois le jour baiser.

English.png English translation

Pretty nymph, wanton and pert,
Thing I worship, little flirt,
My lovely delight whose eyes
Witness my lows and my highs,
My sugarplum, my sweetie,
My blessing, my deity,
To keep me pleased, you must pay
A thousand kisses a day.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
