Toute seule passerai le vert boscage,
Puis que compagnie n'ai;
Se j'ai perdu mon ami par mon outrage,
Toute seule passerai le vert boscage.
Je li ferai à savoir par un message
Que je li amenderai.
Toute seule passerai le vert boscage,
Puis que compagnie n'ai.



English translation:
I will walk through the greenwood alone, for I have no one to go with me. If I lost my love through my own fault, I will walk through the greenwood alone. I will send message to let him know that I will make him amends. I will walk through the greenwood alone, for I hae no one to go with me.
