  Je vous pri, mon tres doulx ami
	   Ma tres douce amie
	 Tant que mon argent dura

A Je vous pri, mon tres doulx ami,
   Que briefment vuelliez revenir,
   Affin que tost voye advenir
   Ce que promis avés a mi.

B Ma tres douce amie!
   Mon cuer prent congiet
   Maintenant de vous.
   Belle, ce poise moy.

C Tant que mon argent dura,
	 Que tantost fauldra,
   Nous menrons joieuse vie,
   Or est mon argent fali.

	 Adieu, mon ami!
   Adieu ma tres douce amie!
	 Helas, mon ami!
   Et quant revenerés vous?
