Original text and translations

French.png French text

Faute d'argent, c'est douleur non pareille.
Si je le dis, las, je sais bien pourquoi.
Sans de quibus (sans argent), il faut se tenir coi (tranquille).
Femme qui dort pour l'argent se réveille.

English.png English translation

Lack of money is sorrow unequalled.
If I say this, alas, I know what I am talking about.
Those who have no money must keep quiet.
A sleeping woman will awake for money.
