Ihr guten Herrn, ihr schönen Frauen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ihr guten Herrn, ihr schönen Frauen,
So wohlgetputzt und backenrot,
Belieb' es euch mich anzuschauen
Und seht und [mildert]1 meine Not!
Laßt hier mich nicht vergebens leiern!
Nur der ist froh, der geben mag.
Ein Tag, den alle Menschen feiern,
Er sei für mich ein Erntetag.

Mes bons seigneurs, mes belles dames

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

Mes bons seigneurs, mes belles dames,
Si bien vêtus et si joyeux,
Daignez, en passant, nobles âmes,
Sur mon malheur baisser les yeux !
À de bons cœurs comme les vôtres
Bien faire cause un doux émoi ;
Qu’un jour de fête pour tant d’autres
Soit un jour de moisson pour moi !
