Original text and translations

À ce matin ce seroit bonne estreine,
De desjeuner le bon jambon salé,
Et de bon vin la grand bouteille pleine
Car doucement est de moy avallé,
Avoir bon feu le pein blanc chappellé
Accompagné de la belle au cors gent,
Mais toutefois avoir beu et gallé :
Le principal c’est d’avoir de l’argent.
 

English.png English translation

This morning I would dearly love to dine
On salted ham, a dish on which I dote,
To wash it down, a flagon full of wine,
With greatest ease would slide through my dry throat,
Beside a hearty fire, and with good bread,
A lovely girl – the rest remains unsaid.
And so each appetite would then be sated.
But all in vain: to penury I’m fated.
