Will you buy any tape

Language: English

Will you buy any tape,
Or lace for your cape,
My dainty duck, my dear-a?
Any silk, any thread,
Any toys for your head,
Of the new'st and finest, finest wear-a?
Come to the pedlar;
Money's a medler.
That doth utter all men's ware-a.


Translation(s): FRE GER

Voulez‑vous acheter du ruban

Language: French (Français) after the English

Voulez-vous acheter du ruban,
Ou de la dentelle pour votre pèlerine,
Ma jolie poulette, ma mignonne ?
Ou de la soie, ou du fil,
Quelques jolis colifichets pour votre tête,
Des plus beaux, des plus nouveaux, des plus élégants ?
Venez au colporteur ;
L’argent est un touche à tout
Qui fait sortir les marchandises de tout le monde.
