Je ne fus jamais si aise
que j’ai été depuis trois jours,
j’ai dansé tout à mon aise,
au son des fifres et tambours.
Ah! Mon ami, et la la la,
que j’étais aise, que j’étais aise,
et la la la, et la la, que j’étais aise,
de danser ainsi tous ces jours,
au son des fifres et tambours!

English.png English translation

I never have enjoyed myself so much before
as in these past three days:
I have danced the time away
to the sound of fifes and drums.
Ah my friend, la la la,
what a time I have had,
la la la, and la la, what a time I have had,
dancing, dancing all these days
to the sound of fifes and drums.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank

Ich war noch nie so fröhlich
wie in den letzten drei Tagen.
Ich habe getanzt, ganz, wie ich es gern habe,
zum Klang der Pfeifen und Trommeln.
Ach, mein Freund, und la la la,
wie war ich froh, wie war ich froh,
la la la, und la la, wie war ich froh,
den ganzen Tag zu tanzen
zum Klang der Pfeifen und Trommeln.

Translation by Martin Schubert
