Original text and translations

French.png French text

Fiez-vous y si vous voulez,
Si la prenez, cocu serez.

Je vous dirai, je ne ments point,
si la prenez, cocu serez.

Car de plaisir, il n'en a point :
si la prenez, cocu serez.

Femme venuste, c'est une fuste d'ondes agitée,
tant évollée qu'elle est foulée.

Translation by Peter Rottländer

Vertraut ihr, wenn ihr wollt,
wenn ihr sie nehmt, betrügt sie euch.

Ich sage es euch, ich lüge nicht,
denn es ist kein Vergnügen.

Eine schöne Frau ist wie ein Schiff auf wogender See,
wird so emporgehoben wie niedergeworfen.

English.png English translation

If it’s what you want, go on and flee,
But go with her, a cuckold you’ll be

I tell you true, I shall not lie,
You go with her, a cuckold you’ll be

You please me not, I can’t deny:
You go with her, a cuckold you’ll be

A woman of beauty is as a galley on the storm-tossed sea,
Sails away soon as she’s free.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
