Las, que feray? ne que je devenray?
Est il nesun qui me puist consoler,
Ny aligier des maulx qu'ay a porter
Et nuit et jour, sans que deservy l'ay?

J'ay bien cause se je crye hahay,
Quant mon amy me veult abandoner.
  Las, que [feray? ne que je devenray?
  Est il nesun qui me puist consoler?]

Je l'ay amé leyaulment de cuer vray,
Mais cest amer me sera moult amer,
Car qui aime sans partye trouver,
En verité il n'est pas sans esmay.

  Las, que [feray? ne que je devenray?
  Est il nesun qui me puist consoler,
  Ny aligier des maulx qu'ay a porter
  Et nuit et jour, sans que deservy l'ay?]
