Tu as tout seul, [Jean-Jean]1, vignes et prés ;
Tu as tout seul ton cœur et ta pécune ;
Tu as tout seul deux logis diaprés,
Là où vivant ne prétend chose aucune ;
Tu as tout seul le fruit de ta fortune ;
Tu as tout seul ton boire et ton repas ;
Tu as tout seul toutes choses, fors d'une :
C'est que tout seul ta femme tu n'as pas.
