Original words (in Auvergnat)
L'aïo dé rotso té foro mourir, filhoto, l'aïo dé rotso té foro mourir.
Né té cal pas beïr oquel aïo quel aïo,
mes cal prendr' un couot d'oquel aïo dé bi!
S'uno filhoto sé bouol morida, pitchouno, s'uno filhoto sé bouol morida,
li cal pas douna d'oquel aïo dé rotso,
aïmaro miliour oquel aïo dé bi.

My English singing translation:
Sparkling spring water, little girl, that drink is fatal. Spark-ling spring water will not let you live.
You should never drink of the spring's flowing water, you should take the water the vine will provide
When a young maiden wants to wed, oh little one, so when a young maiden wants a wedding fine,
she should not be given the spring's flowing water, she will much prefer if it comes from the vine.
