Si vous la baisez comptez quinze,
Si vous touchez le tétin, trente.
Si vous avez la motte prise,
Quarante cinq lors se présente.
Mais si vous mettez en la fente,
C'est de quoy la dame à mestier :
Vous gagnez le jeu tout entier.

Translation by Edward Tambling
If you kiss her, count fifteen,
If you touch her nipple, thirty.
If you have mounted her,
Forty-five becomes the score.
But if you put it in her slot,
This is what the lady does for a living:
You win the entire game.
