Hault et bas la cheminée,
Crioit Gingin un iour parmi la ruë.
Et Marion, plus viste que le pas,
vient droit a luy, humblement la salue :
Hé, mon amy, ne vous plairoit il pas
venir avec gaigner vostre iournée ?
Ouy, dit il, Ie ne m’y feindray pas
a ramonner hault et bas la cheminée.

German.png German translation

Rauf und runter den Kamin,
rief Gingin eines Tages mitten auf der Straße.
Und Marion, so schnell es ging,
geht direkt zu ihm, bescheiden grüßt sie:
He, mein Freund, gefiele es dir nicht,
mitzukommen, um deinen Tagelohn zu verdienen?
Ja, sagt er, ich hätte keine Bedenken,
den Kamin rauf und runter zu fegen.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Up and down the chimney,
cried Gingin one day in the street.
And Marion, as fast as possible,
goes straight to him, humbly she greets:
Hey, my friend, would you not like
to come with me to earn your day-wage?
Yes, he says, I would not scruple
to sweep the chimney up and down.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
