This is an arrangement of Claudin de Sermisy's madrigal with added verses from the original poem.

Les dames se sont tailladées
Chacune d`un Toulouzan
Par compra, ha, ha
L`eyse Sabaton de Cordouen
Lo scafignolet, hari bouriquet...
L`on sonne une cloche dix ou douze coups;
Le peuple s`approche, se met a genoux,
Le prestre se vest
hari, hari l`asne, hari bouriquet [chorus]
Du pain sur la nappe, un calice d`or Il met prend sa chappe,
dit Confiteor
Le peuple se taist
Si tost qu`il acheve, le peuple ecoustant Sa Parole
s'esleve et respond autant en plus haut caquet

Rough summary translation:
The ladies have each had Toulouse dresses made and comfortable low backed shoes
to look their best
Hee-haw, little donkey!

The bell is rung ten or twelve times
The congregation approaches and kneels, The priest dons his vestments
hee-haw, little donkey!
Bread on the cloth, a golden chalice
He places it and dons his cope and says "Confiteor"
The congregation is silent
As soon as he`s done the congregation listening to his word,
rise up and respond
hee-haw at the tops of their voices...
