La maîtresse volage

Language: French (Français)

Ma maîtresse est volage,
Mon rival est heureux;
S'il a son pucellage,
C'est qu'elle en avait deux.
Et vogue la galère,
Tant qu'elle pourra voguer.

Die freizügige Geliebte

Language: German (Deutsch) after the French (Français)

Meine Herrin ist ständig am wandern,
mein Rivale kann sein Glück kaum ermessen:
Hat die Unschuld sie verloren beim andern,
dann hat sie wohl zwei besessen.
Komme, was da wolle,
solange sie es will.
