Iay veu le cerf du bois sallir
et boire a la fontaine.
Ie bois a ty mon bel amy
et a ta souveraine.
Si tu ne fais ainsi que my,
tu pairas pinte plaine.
Iay veu le cerf du bois sallir
et boire' a la fontaine.

Modern French
J'ai vu le cerf sortir du bois
et boire à la fontaine.
Je bois à toi, mon bel ami
et à ta souveraine.
Si tu ne fais comme moi,
tu paieras une pinte pleine.
J'ai vu le cerf sortir du bois
et boire à la fontaine.

I have seen the deer come out of the woods
and drink at the fountain.
Here's to you, my dear friend
and to you sovereign lady.
If you don't join me in this toast,
the beer will be on you!
I have seen the deer come out of the woods
and drink at the fountain.
