Original text and translations

Gens qui parlez mal de mon amie
en ne savez pas bien comment vous avez tort:
elle ne m'y tient aucun propos de vous
si je l'aime parfaitement,
pourquoi avez vous envie?
En dépit de vous, je la servirai loyalement toute ma vie.

English.png English translation

You wicked tongues who pass the time by railing
Against my sweetheart, what a wrong you do!
Do you suppose she speaks to me of you?
My love for her is true, it is unfailing.
No matter how you enviously endeavour,
I loyally shall serve my love for ever.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
