Original text and translations

French.png French text

Je suis déshéritée,
Puisque j’ai perdu mon ami.
Seulett' il m’a laissée,
Pleine de pleurs et de souci.
Rossignol du bois joli,
Sans point faire demeurée,
Va t‘en dire à mon ami
Que pour lui suis tourmentée.

English.png English translation

I'm broke,
because I lost my friend.
He left me, now I'm alone,
full of tears and sorrow.
Nightingale in the woods
go immediately
and tell my friend
that I'm tormented for his sake.

Translation by Dick Wursten
