From Attaignant's fourth book of chansons, 1540.
Lyrics: Clément Marot

Frère Thibault séjourné, gros et gras,
Tirait de nuit une garce en chemise
Par le treillis de sa chambre où le bras
Elle passa puis la têste y a mise,
Et puis le sein: mais elle fut bien prise,
Car le fessier y passer ne peut onc:
Par la mort bieu (ce dit le moine adonc)
Il ne m'en chaut de bras, tétin, ni têum;te:
Passez le cul, où vous retirez donc:
Je ne saurais sans lui vous faire fête.

Friar Thibault, well fat and lardy, is pulling a hoe into his cell one night through the trellis;
Arms, chest, head, then she gets well stuck 'cause her booty won't go through.
"Sod it" says the monk, "arms, tits and head don't do it for me,
Get your arse in here or sod off. I don't know how to party without it".
