I. La Maitresse volage
The Fickle Mistress
My mistress is fickle, my rival is happy,
If he has a suspicion, it is that she has two.
La, la, la, la, la.

II. Chanson a Boire
The kings of Egypt and Syria
Wanted their bodies embalmed
So that long after death they would last.

How sweet is the balm!
You are as beautiful as an angel,
Sweet as a little sheep:
There is no heart
Which does not rest beneath your rule;
Here’s what’s next.
