Si dessus voz leures de roses
Ie voy mes liesses descloses,
Mon esprit, ma vie & mon bien,
Vous ne pouez me le defendre:
Par tout le mien ie puis reprendre,
Il faut que chacun ait le sien.

German.png German translation

Wenn ich auf euren rosigen Lippen
meine Freuen dargeboten sehe,
mein Geist, mein Leben und mein Höchstes,
dann könnt ihr mir sie nicht verwehren:
überall kann ich mein Eigentum ergreifen,
ein jeder muss das Seine haben.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

If on your rosy lips
I see my happiness revealed,
my spirit, my life and my weal,
you cannot refuse them to me:
everywhere I may take what is mine,
everyone must have his own.
