Lyrics: Anon

Je n'ose être content de mon contentement,
Ne voulant désire plus grand aise en ma vie,
De peur de perdre plus que ce dont j'ai ennuie,
Car qui demande trop pour plaisir a tourment.

I dare not be satisfied with my contentment,
No longer wanting to wish for great ease in my life,
For fear of losing more than that which bores me,
Because he who insists overly on pleasure is tormented.
