Si par trop boire lendemain
Vous tremble teste pied ou main,
Prenez bien tost sans contredict
Du poil du chien que vous mordict.

French.png French text

Si par trop boire lendemain
Vous tremble tête pied ou main,
Prenez bientôt sans contredit
Du poil du chien que vous mordit.

English.png English translation

If, through too much drink, next day
You tremble in head, foot or hand,
Immediately, without quibbling, take
An hair of the dog that bit you
