Monique Lyr Add: Mudcat singaround songs NOT in English (127* d) RE: Lyr Add: Mudcat singaround songs NOT in English 02 Feb 21

(Trad. French XVth c., singing of Malicorne)

1. Je suis trop jeunette pour faire un ami
Mais je suis bien prête d’en faire un joli
S’il est à ma porte, il aura mon cœur
Je laisserai mon père, ma mère, mon frère, ma sœur

Et irai seulette au bois avec lui
Cueillir la violette pour passer l’ennui.

2. S’il veut me promettre de me tenir seule
Seule à être aimée et de tout son cœur
Jamais aurai autre, seulement que lui
Ni roi, prince, comte qui vive aujourd’hui

(Singable translation by Casey [Diplocase])

1. I am very young yet, for to have a love
Ready though I am, which know’th-God-above
If he come to see me, he will have my heart
From my sister, my brother, my father and mother depart

And alone together to the wood so fine
go a-picking violets for to pass the time

2. If he will but promise, and to me alone
Hold me to his heart, take no other one
I will have no lover, none but only he
No man, though King-prince-or-lord might he be
