E per jelós irritar — eyaAnd annoy the jealous ones, eya,
Vòl la regina mostrarLet us show the Queen some fun,
Qu'el'es si amorosaFor she is young and she's in love.
A la vi', a la via, jelós!On your way, on your way! Jealous ones,
Laissatz nos, laissatz nosLeave us, leave us
Balar entre nos, entre nos.To dance among ourselves, among ourselves.

Non sia jusqu'à la mar — eyaTo the sea, from here to there, eya,
Piucela ni bachalar — eyaBoys and girls both young and fair, eya,
Que tuit non vengan dançarShould abandon every care
En la dansa joiosa.And join us in a dance of joy.
