Mon cœur est tout endormy

Language: French (Français)

Mon cœur est tout endormy,
Réveille moy, belle;
Mon cœur est tout endormy,
Réveille-le my!
Si mon cœur se trouve saisi
de quelque ennuyeuse tristesse,
tôt rends-le à grande liesse,
Réveille moy, belle,
Car tant de regards t'ai lancés
Que mes yeux en sont tous lassés!

Translation(s): ENG

My heart is drowsy

Language: English after the French (Français)

My heart is drowsy,
Wake me up, beauty;
My heart is drowsy,
Wake me up!
Although my heart is seized
by the same exhausting sadness,
it will soon give in to great jubilation,
Wake me up, beauty,
I have thrown you so many glances that
My eyes are worn out!
