Original text and translations

Helas ne fringuerons, fringuerons nous,
Helas ne fringuerons nous jamais?
Et nostre chamberiere,
Au matin c'est levée,
A prins son seau a l'eau,
A l'eau s'en est allée:
«Qu'en puys-je donc mais.»
«Non, fay-je, pas moy.»
Helas ne fringuerons, fringuerons nous,
Helas ne fringuerons nous jamais?

English.png English translation

Alas, will we never frig, never frig?
Alas will we never frig at all?
You see we have this chambermaid,
Who every morning’s on the ball,
She takes her water pail
She takes it to the well:
“I can’t help it withal.”
“Not me, I don’t, at all.”
Alas, will we never frig, never frig?
Alas will we never frig at all?

Translation by Thomas Daughton
