He that has and a little tiny wit

Language: English

He that has and a little tiny wit --
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain, --
Must make content with his fortunes fit,
[For]1 the rain it raineth every day.

Celui qui a le plus léger bon sens

Language: French (Français) after the English

Celui qui a le plus léger bon sens,
Ô gué ! par la pluie et le vent,
Doit mesurer sa résignation à son sort,
Car la pluie tombe tous les jour.
