Quand mon mari vient de dehors

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Quand mon mari vient de dehors
Ma rente est d'etre battue ;
Il prend la cuillier du pot,
A la tête il me la rue,
J'ai grand peur qu'il ne me tue ;
C'est un faux villain jaloux
C'est un villain rioteux, gromeleux ;
Je suis jeune et il est vieux.

Translation(s): DUT ENG

Old French version:

 Quand mon mary vient de dehors
 Ma rente est d'estre batue,
 Il prend la cuillier du pot,
 A la teste il me la rue,
 J'ay grand peur qu'il ne me tue,
 C'est vn faux villain jaloux
 C'est vn villain rioteux, grommeleux :
 Je suis jeune & il est vieux.
