Old French
Ie suis deseritee
puisque iay perdu mon amy
seulette il ma laissee
pleine de pleurs et de souci

rossignol du bois ioly
sans point fere demeuree
va ten dire a mon amy
que pour lui suis tormentee

Modern French
Je suis déshéritée
puisque j'ai perdu mon ami,
seulette il m'a laissée,
pleine de pleurs et de soucis.

Rossignol du bois joli,
me voici demeurée sans rien faire,
va t'en dire à mon ami
qu'à cause de lui je suis tourmentée.

I am bereft since I have lost my friend
he left me all alone
filled with tears and anguish.
Nightingale, who lives in this pretty forest,
look how I remain so inept and lame
take this message to my friend
how much I suffer because of him.
