Le Roi a fait battre Tambour


The King had the drums beat

The King had the drums beat
To see all his ladies
And the first he saw
Delighted his soul2

Marquis tell me do you know her ?
Marquis tell me do you know her ?
Who is this pretty lady ?
And the marquis answered
Lord king it is my wife

Marquis you are happier than me
Marquis you are happier than me
To have a wife so beautiful
If you would grant her to me
I would take care of her

My Lord if you weren’t the king
My Lord if you weren’t the king
I would exert vengeance
But since you are the king
To your obedience

Marquis do not get angry
Marquis do not get angry
You will have your reward
I will make you in my armies
Good marshall of France

Farewell my love, farewell my heart
Farewell my love, farewell my heart
Farewell my hope
Since you have to serve the king
Let’s separate from our union

The king took her by the hand
The king took her by the hand
And led her to his chambers
The beauty rising the steps
Tried to defend herself

Marquise do not weep so
Marquise do not weep so
I will make you a princess
Of all my gold and silver
You will be the mistress

Keep your gold and silver
Keep your gold and silver
They only belong to the queen
I will love better my sweet marquis
Than all of your riches

The queen had a bouquet made
The queen had a bouquet made
Of beautiful lillies flowers
But the scent of that bouquet
Caused the marquise to die

The King had the drums beat
The King had the drums beat
To see all his ladies
And the first he saw
Delighted his soul
