Original text
Las, voles vous qu'une personne chante
a qui le Coeur ne fais que souspirer
laisses chanter celui que ce contente
et me laisses mon mal endurer.

Modern French
Hélas, voulez-vous qu'une personne chante
à qui le coeur ne fait que soupirer?
Laissez chanter celui qui est content
et laissez-moi endurer mon mal.

English.png English translation

Alas, why do you claim songs
from those whose heart is sighing?
Enjoy the singing by those who are content
and leave me to suffer my misfortune.
