Lyrics
Translation

Lanquan li jorn son lonc en may
When the days are long in May

M'es belhs dous chans d'auzelhs de lonh,
I love the singing of a bird from a faraway country

Et quan mi suy partitz de lay
And when I left it and it flew away

Remembra.m d'un' amor de lonh:
It reminded me of a faraway love

Vau de talan embroncx e clis
I. ll follow my heart. s desire to places

Si que chans ni flors d'albespis
As long as singing and holly

No.m platz plus que l'yverns gelatz.
Mean more to me than winter. s frost


Be tenc lo senhor per veray
I do believe God is real

Per qu'ieu veirai l'amor de lonh ;
Through him and with his help I. ll see my faraway love again

Mas per un ben que m'en eschay
Because I. ve got to stay here against my will

N'ai dos mals, quar tant m'es de lonh.
I. m hurt twice as much seeing she. s so faraway

Ai ! car me fos lai pelegris,
Ah! Why aren. t I a pilgrim travelling

Si que mos fustz e mos tapis
And then my cape and stick

Fos pels sieus belhs huelhs remiratz !
Would be contemplated by her beautiful eyes


Be.m parra joys quan li querray,
The joy when in the name of God

Per amor Dieu, l'alberc de lonh:
I will ask for far away shelter

E, s'a lieys platz, alberguarai
But for now I don. t know when I. ll see her

Pres de lieys, si be.m suy de lonh:
If God will I. ll stay close to her I who is so far away

Adoncs parra.l parlamens fis
What lovely conversations one will hear

Quan drutz lonhdas er tan vezis
And the faraway lovers will be finally close

Qu'ab bels digz jauzira solatz.
And what beautiful words will be exchanged.
