La la, maistre piere
la la, buvons don
en revenant de Nanterre
ie m'assis sur une piere
aupres de moy ung flacon
a ce flacon fit la guerre
en mangeant dung gras gambon
la la, maistre piere
la la, buvons don

Modern French

La la Maître Pierre,
La la, buvons donc.
En revenant de Nanterre,
Je m'assis sur une pierre,
Auprès de moi un flacon.
A ce flacon fis la guerre
En mangeant d'un gras jambon.
La la Maître Pierre,
La la, buvons donc.

English.png English translation

Master Peter, down the hatch!
Drain the cup with all despatch!
As I returned from Marylebone
I sat me down upon a stone,
A flagon for myself alone,
And with it, too, a ham to match,
The juiciest I've ever known.
Master Peter, down the hatch!
Drain the cup with all despatch!
