Un avocat dit à sa femme :
« Sus, m’amie, que jouerons-nous ? »
– « Si je gagne, ce dit la dame,
Vous le me ferez quatre coups. »
– « Quatre coups, c’est couché trop gros
Comment serait jeu sans pitié ? »
– « Non, non, maître, tenez-le tout,
Dit le clerc, j’en suis de moitié. »

A lawyer said unto his wife:
-"Well, lady, what shall we play?"
-"If I win, say the lady,
I'll get it four times."
-"Four times, no less, that is hard work,
do you have no mercy upon me?"
-"Do not worry, master," say the clerk,
"I have done half the job for you."
