      Original French
      L'homme, l'homme, l'homme armé,
      L'homme armé
      L'homme armé doibt on doubter, doibt on doubter.
      On a fait partout crier,
      Que chascun se viengne armer
      D'un haubregon de fer.

      English
      The man, the man, the armed man,
      The armed man
      The armed man should be feared, should be feared.
      Everywhere it has been proclaimed
      That each man shall arm himself
      With a coat of iron mail.
