Réveille-toi, réveille-toi, perdrix mignonne,
Ouvre au matin tes ailes.
Trois grains de beauté,
mon cœur en est brûlé!

Vois le ruban d'or que je t'apporte,
Pour le nouer autour de tes cheveux.
Si tu veux, ma belle, viens nous marier!
Dans nos deux familles, tous sont alliés!

El sueño de la novia
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the French (Français) 
Despiértate, preciosa perdiz,
Abre tus alas a la mañana,
Tres lunares, 
mi corazón arde por ellos.

Mira la cinta de oro que te traigo
Para anudarla alrededor de tus cabellos.
¡Si quieres, hermosa mía, ven a casarte conmigo!
En nuestras familias todos son aliados.
