Reiouyssons nous a ceste heure,
en ce ioly moys de may
le rossignol demeure au bois
chantant si gay
sans quelque lay
liray ouyr chanter e veoir la belle figure
que je veulx aymer.

Modern French
Réjouissons-nous à cette heure
en ce joli mois de mai.
Le rossignol demeure au bois,
chantant si gaiement, sans quelque retenue.
J'irai ouir chanter et voir
la belle figure que je veux aimer.

Let us be joyful in this hour
in this merry month of May.
The nightingale lives in the woods
and sings cheerfullly without any shame.
I'll go listen and see
that beautiful figure I would want to love.
