Original text and translations

French.png French text

Puisque vertu en amour n'a plus lieu
et qu'on n'y tient vérité ni promesse,
contrainct je suis de venir dire adieu,
à vous qui fûtes autrefois ma maîtresse.

Il m'en déplait mais j'ay moindre tristesse
quand je comprends que viendrez à sentir
combien valait à servir mon adresse ;
alors sera trop tard le repentir.

Modern French
Puisque vertu en amour n’a plus lieu
et qu’on n’y tient vérité ni promesse,
je suis contraint de venir dire adieu
à vous qui fûtes ma maîtresse.
Il m’en deplaît, mais j’ai moindre tristesse
quand je comprend que (vous) viendrez à sentir
combien valait à servir mon adresse,
mais alors le repentir sera trop tard.

English.png English translation

Since virtue has no more place in love
and truth and promise have been forlorn
I have no choice but to take my leave from you
who were my mistress.
It is with heavy heart, but for the best.
No doubt I'll hear that you have come
to value my services to you,
yet your repentance will come too late.
