Original text and translations

French.png French text

Et la, la, la
Faites-lui bonne chère.
Me levai par un matin
La fraîche matinée
M’en entrai en nos jardins
Pour cueillir giroflée.
Là trouvai le mien ami
Qui l’avait amassée.
Et la, la, la,
Faites-lui bonne chère
À la belle bergère.

English.png English translation

And la, la, la
Make sure to show all your charm.
One fine day when up I got
In morning‘s early hour
To the garden at a trot
I went to get my flower
And there I found my lover
Who’d plucked it in the bower
And la, la, la,
Make sure to show all your charm
To the maiden from the farm.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
