Dindirindin
Anonymous (c.1500)

Dindirin daña, dindirindin.

Je me levé un bel matin,
Matinata per la prata;
Encontré le rui señor,
Que cantaba so la rama, dindirindin.

Dindirin daña, dindirindin.

Encontré le rui señor,
Que cantaba so la rama,
"Rui señor, le rui señor,
Facteme aquesta embaxata, dindirindin."

Dindirin daña, dindirindin.

"Rui señor, le rui señor,
facteme aquesta embaxata,
Y digalo a mon ami
Que je ya só maritata, dindirindin."

Dindirin daña, dindirindin.


Dindirindin
Translation

Dindirin danya, dindirindin.

I arose one fine day
and spent the morning in the meadow;
I heard the nightingale
singing on the bough, din-di-rin-din.

Dindirin danya, dindirindin.

I heard the nightingale
singing on the bough,
Nightingale, oh nightingale,
do this errand for me, din-di-rin-din.

Dindirin danya, dindirindin.

Nightingale, oh nightingale,
do this errand for me,
tell my lover
that I am already married! Din-di-rin-din.

Dindirin danya, dindirindin.
