Bonjour mon coeur, bonjour ma douce vie
Bonjour mon oeil, bonjour ma chère amie!
Hé! Bonjour ma toute belle,
Ma mignardise, bonjour
Mes délices, mon amour,
Mon doux printemps, ma douce fleur nouvelle,
Mon doux plaisir, ma douce colombelle,
Mon passereau, ma gente tourterelle!
Bonjour ma douce rebelle.

The following verse translation, by Miriam Chase, was placed on the Internet by 'Vivace!'
It is quite free, but conveys the general idea of the poem.

Good day, dear heart!
Good day, my charming maiden!
Good day, my own!
Good day, my flower, love laden!
Ah, good day, my gentle sweetheart,
My nymph enchanting, good day,
Mine eyes' delight, my dear love.
My tender bud, my fresh and gentle spring flower,
My singing bird, my turtle dove in rose bower,
My winsome maid, my heart's delight and longing.
Good day, my sweet, my tyrant love.
