Je me complains piteusement
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG ENG
Je me complains piteusement
A moi tout seul plus qu'a nullui,
De la griesté, paine e tourment,
Que je souffre plus que ne di.
Dangier me tient en tel soussi
Qu'eschever ne puis sa rudesse,
Et Fortune le veult aussi,
  Mais, par ma foy, ce fait Jonesse.

I complain piteously
Language: English  after the French (Français) 
I complain piteously
To myself alone more than to anyone else
Of the grief, pain and torment
I suffer more than I can say.
The Pain of Love keeps me so worried
That I cannot escape its brutality
And Fortune wishes it so too
   But by my faith, this is what Youth does!
