Orsus a coup qu'on se resveille
veze ouir le chant melodieulx
du rossignol que ne sommeille
et va chantant son chant gratieulx
ung bon amy laultre veille.

Modern French
Aussi promptement qu'on se réveille,
venez écouter le chant mélodieux du rossignol
que ne dort pas et va chantant son chant gratieux.
Un bon ami pour l'autre veille.

English.png English translation

As soon as you wake up
come and hear the nightingale's beautiful song.
He doesn't sleep but sings his gracious song.
A good friend keeping watch over the other.
