Lyrics Direct Translation Poetic Translation
Robins m'aime, Robins m'a, Robin loves me, Robin has me, Robin loves me; we're a pair.
Robins m'a demandée, Robin has asked me, Robin asked me so sweetly
Si m'ara. if he will have me. If I care.
Robins m'cata cotele Robin bought me a robe Robin gave me so discreetly
D'escarlate bone et bele, Of beautiful, superior quality cloth, Clothes made of fine cloth completely,
Souskanie et chainturele, A smooth and a narrow girtle. Smocks and belts that fasten neatly:
A leur I va. For them I consent. [lit., I go for that!] For that I'm there!
Robins m'aime, Robins m'a, Robin loves me, Robin has me, Robin loves me; we're a pair.
Robins m'a demandée, Robin has asked me, Robin asked me so sweetly
Si m'ara. if he will have me. If I care.
