Resveillez vous, cest trop dormy,
Faisons au dieu damours hommaige.
Nentendez vous point votre amy
Qui chante lamoureux ramaige?
Las il a bon jour ne demy,
Pour aymer vostre personnaige.

Réveillez-vous, c'est trop dormi,
Faisons au dieu d'amours hommage.
N'entendez-vous point votre ami
Qui chante l'amoureux ramage?
Las, il n'a bon jour ni demi,
Pour aimer votre personnage.

English.png English translation

Wake up, you've overslept.
Let us pay our respects to the god of love.
Don't you hear your friend at all,
Who sings sweet nothings?
There isn't, alas, a full day, nor even a half,
To adore your character.

(trans Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
