Original text and translations

Adieu, mes amours,
Adieu, vous commande
Adieu, je vous dis,
Jusques au bon temps.

Je suis en soucy
De quoi je vivray.
La raison pourquoi,
Je la vous diray:

Je n’ai point d’argent.
Vivray-je du vent
Si l’argent du roy
ne vient plus souvent ?

English.png English translation

Adieu, my love,
Goodbye, I tell you
Farewell, I say,
Until the good times come again.

I'm worried
About how I shall live.
The reason why,
I will tell you:

I have no money.
Will I have to live on wind
If the royal money
Does not come more often?
Translation by James Gibb
