Allons, allons gay, gaiement, ma mignonne, vous et moi.
Mon père a fait faire un château,
d'or et d'argent sont les carreaux.
Le roi n'en a pas de plus beau,
allons, gay, ma mignonne, vous et moi.

Come, come gaily, gaily, my pretty one, you and I.
My father’s built a castle,
with gold and silver stones.
The king has not one so fair,
come gaily, my beauty, you and I.
