L’ôlure avaou couorait.

 

Sources (English)

 

Setting off fervently from Fermain,

we then pass the Nez, with the Bec,

Moulin Huet, and then Saints;

the water was flowing down.

 

Waiting there, of fishing

and its old Nanny Goat we hear;

that’s great, let’s tell!

Myths were flowing down.

Partant avec ferveur de Fermain,

on passe donc le Nez, avec le Bec,

le Moulin Huet, puis Saints ;

l'eau coulait.

 

Attendant là, de la pêche

Et de sa vieille Chèvre nous entendons;

c'est génial, racontons!

Le mythe coulait.

Vol vuur vertrekken we vanuit Fermain,

we passeren dan de Nez, met de Bec,

Moulin Huet, en dan Saints;

het water stroomde naar beneden.

 

Daar wachten we, waar we over visserij

en de oude Nanny Goat horen;

dat is geweldig, vertel het ons!

Mythen stroomden naar beneden.
