Original text and translations

French.png French text

Orsus a coup qu'on se reveille
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 gracieux.
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.
