Original text and translations
Good fellows must go learn to dance
The bridal is full near
There is a round come out of France,
The trimmest you saw two year.
For I must leap and you must hop
And we will turn all three:
the fourth must bounce it like a top
And so shall we agree.
I praye thee, minstrel, make no stop
For we must merry be.
