Song lyrics
Ego sum abbas Cucaniensis I am the abbot of the Cockaigne
et consilium meum est cum bibulis, and my assembly is one of drinkers
et in secta Decii voluntas mea est, and I wish to be in the order of Decius
et qui mane me quesierit in taberna, and whoever searches me out
post vesperam nudus egredietur, at the tavern in the morning
et sic denudatus veste clamabit: after Vespers he will leave naked
and thus stripped of his clothes, he will call out:
(Baritone and Male Chorus) :
Wafna, wafna! Woe! Woe!

quid fecisti sors turpissimo what have you done,vilest fate
Nostre vite gaudia the joys of my life
abstulisti omnia! you have taken all away!
