Janeta ount anirem gardar,
Qu'ajam boun tems un'oura? Lan la !
Aval, aval, al prat barrat;
la de tan belas oumbras ! Lan la!

Lou pastour quita soun mantel,
Per far siere Janetan Lan la !
Janeta a talamen jougat,
Que se ies oublidada, Lan la !

Note: the dialect of Occitan here is Limousin (or Lemousin, in that language)
Modern French version:
Jeanneton où irons-nous garder,
Qu'ayons bon temps une heure ? Lan la !
Là-bas, là-bas, au pré barré ;
Y'a de tant belles ombres ! Lan la !

Le pastour quitte son manteau,
Et fait seoir Jeannette Lan la !
Jeannette a tellement joué,
Que s'y est oubliée, Lan la !
