Bonjour mon cœur

Language: French (Français)

Bonjour mon cœur
Bonjour mon cœur,
Bonjour ma douce vie,
Bonjour mon œil
Bonjour ma chere amie!

Hé! bonjour, ma toute belle,
Ma mignardise,
Bonjour, mes délices,
Mon amour,
Mon doux printemps,
Ma douce fleur nouvelle,
Mon doux plaisir,
Ma douce colombelle,
Mon passereau, ma gente tourterelle!
Bonjour ma douce rebelle.

Je veux mourir 
Si plus on me reproche
Que mon service
Est plus froid qu'une roche,

De t'avoir laissé maistresse
Pour aller suivre le roy
[Et chercher]1 je ne sçay quoy
Que le vulgaire
Appelle une largesse.
Plustoste perisse honneur,
Cour et richesse,
Que pour les biens
Jamais je te relaisse,
Ma douce et belle deesse.
