Original underlay
Ung iour Colin la collecte s'accula
en luy disant or mectez le cul là,
puis de si pres se print à la coler,
que la colant qu'en bricolant
la goute fist couler,
et pour culer iamais ne recula.

Modern French version
Un jour, Colin accula la Collette,
en disant:
"Mettez le cul là!"
Puis, de si près,
se prit à la coller
en se livrant aux pratiques de l'amour,
fit couler la goute
et jamais ne recula.

English.png English translation

One day, Colin pushed Collette into a corner,
telling her: "Get your a** over there!"
And then, right close to her, started doing her,
perfecting the art of love-making
till the very last drop,
as he never shied away from a good time.
