Refrain: Revecy venir du Printans.
L'amoureuz' et belle saizon.

Le courant des eaus recherchant,
Le canal d'été s'éclaircît:
Et la mer calme de ces flots,
Amolit le triste courrous:
Le Canard s'égay' se plonjant,
Et se lave coint dedans l'eau
Et la grû' qui fourche son vol,
Retraverse l'air et s'en va.

(Refrain)

Le Soleil éclaire luizant,
D'une plus sereine clairté:
Du nuage l'ombre s'enfuit,
Qui se ioû' et court et noircît
Et foretz et champs et coutaus,
Le labeur humain reverdît,
Et la prê' decouvre ses fleurs.

(Refrain)

De Venus le filz cupidon,
L'univers semant de ses trais,
De sa flamme va réchaufér.
Animaus, qui volet en l'air,
Animaus, qui rampet au chams
Animaus, qui naget auz eaus.
Ce qui mesmement ne sent pas,
Amoureux se fond de plaizir.

(Refrain)

Rion aussi nous: et cherchon
Les ébas et ieus du Printans
Toute chose rit de plaizir:
Sélebron la gaye saizon,

(Refrain)

Refrain: Schau auf die Ankunft des Frühlings.
Die verliebte und schöne Zeit.

Refrain: Here again comes the Spring,
the amorous and fair season.

The currents of water that seek
The canal in summer become clearer;
And the sea calms her waves,
Softens the sad anger.

The duck, elated, dives
 in,
And washes itself happily in the water.
And the crane breaks its path,
Crosses back and flies away.

(Refrain)

The sun shines brightly
With a most serene clarity:
From the cloud the shadow flies
And plays and runs and darkens
And forests and fields and hillsides,
Human labor makes green again,
And the prairie unveils its flowers.

(Refrain)

From Venus’ son, Cupid,
The universe is seeded in milk,
Is warmed by his flames.
Animals that fly in the air,
Animals that slither in the fields,
Animals that swim in the seas,
Even the unsentient ones,
Once in love, are melted by pleasure.

(Refrain)

So let us laugh: and let us seek out
The frolicking and the games of Spring
All the world laughs in pleasure:
Let us celebrate the happy season,

'(Refrain)
