Je fille quant Dieu my donne de quoy,
Je file ma quenoille o voy.
En no jardin men entray,
Je fille ...
Trois fleurs damours je trouvay,
Je vay, je vien, je tourne, je vire,
Je ferre, je taille, je tonds, je raiz,
Je saulte, je danse, je ris, je chante,
Je chaulfe mon four
Je garde mes ouailles et tout.
Je file ...

German.png German translation

Ich spinne, wenn man mir was zum Spinnen gibt,
ich spinne, mit meinem Rocken ?.
In einen Garten drang ich ein
Ich spinne...
Drei Blumen der Liebe fand ich dort,
ich gehe, ich komme, ich drehe mich, ich schwenke,
ich nagele, ich behaue, ich schneide, ich schere,
ich springe, ich tanze, ich lache, ich singe,
ich heize meinen Ofen,
ich bewahre meine Lämmer und alles.
Ich spinne…

I spin when given the means,
I spin with my distaff ?.
Into a garden I entered,
I spin…
Three flowers of love I found there,
I go, I come, I turn, I sway,
I nail, I cut, I shear, I shave,
I leap, I dance, I laugh, I sing,
I heat my oven,
I guard my sheep and all.
I spin...
