From the Mellange d'Orlande de Lassus, 1570.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Un advocat dit à sa femme "Sus, m'amie que jouerons nous?"
"Si je gaigne ce", dit la dame, "vous le me ferez quatre coups".
"Quatre coups c'est couché trop gros, comment serait jeu sans pitié".
"Non maître, tenez-le tout", dit le clerc, "je suis de moitié".

A lawyer says to his wife: "Sukey, dear, what shall we play?"
"If I win it" says his wife "you must bang me four times".
"Four times is too big a stake, it will be a merciless game".
"No master, suck it all up" says the clerk, "I'm on fifty per cent".
