Original text and translations

French.png French text

À la fontaine du prés, Margot, Marguerite s’est baignée.
Son ami passait par là, qui la regarde, et hip !
« Belle, que faites-vous là, Margot, Marguerite ?
— J’arrose mon persinet [: persil] et ma souriette [: petite souris], et hip ! »

English.png English translation

At the fountain in the meadow, Margot, Marguérite was bathing.
Her lover passed there by, watching her, and hip!
“My beauty, what do you there, Margot, Marguérite?
— I’m washing my parsley, and my little mouse, and hip!”
