Au joli bois je m’en vais.
Mon père et ma mère ont leur foi juré
Que dans six semaines mariée serai
À un vieux bonhomme que je tromperai.
Droit en Cornouailles je l’envoyerai.

English.png English translation

To the lovely wood I go.
My father and mother have sworn in faith
That in six weeks I will be married.
To an old man, who I will deceive.
Straight to Cornwall I will send [him].
