<poem>Margot, labourez les vignes bientôt Vigne, vigne, vignolet, Margot, labourez les vignes bientôt. En revenant de Lorraine Margot, Rencontrai trois capitaines, Vigne, vigne, vignolet, Ils m’ont salué vilaine Margot, Je suis leurs fièvres quartaines, Vigne, vigne, vignolet, Margot, labourez les vignes bientôt.
