From "Le premier livre de chansons.... ", 1564.
Lyrics: Clément Marot

Fleur de quinze ans (si Dieu vous sauve et gard),
J'ai en amour trouvé cinq points exprès.
Premierement il y a le regard,
Puis le devis et le baiser après;
L'atouchement le baiser suit de près
Et tous ceux là tendent au dernier point
Qui est je ne le dirai point.
Mais s'il vous plaît en ma chambre vous rendre,
Je me mettrai volontiers en pourpoint;
Voire tout nu pour le vous faire apprendre.

God save and protect you, petal; you're fifteen.
I have identified a five-point love plan.
First, there's a look, a summing-up, a kiss after,
Then post-kiss touching, all of which
Leads to the best bit,
Which I shall gloss over.
But if you care to present yourself
In my bedroom,
I will gladly provide myself in my suit
Or my birthday suit, to help you understand it.
