Original text and translations

French.png French text

Quand mon mary vient de dehors,
Ma rente est d’estre battue :
Il prend la cuillier du pot
À la teste il me la rue.

J’ay grand peur qu’il ne me tue.
C’est un faux vilain, jaloux
C’est un vilain, rioteux, grommeleux.
Je suis jeune et il est vieux.

English.png English translation

When my old man comes home from work
My sad fate is to be whipped:
He grabs a spoon from the pot
And on the head I get clipped.

I fear he’ll put me in the crypt
He’s a lying, jealous rogue
He’s such a rogue, a brawler, uncontrolled,
But I’m young and he is old.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
