D’argent à une aigle de gueules, au vol abaissé, membrée, becquée et couronnée d’or, empiétant une montagne de trois coupeaux de sable issant d’une mer d’azur mouvant de la pointe et ondée d’argent.

The cart and the barrels.

Each furrow a seilloun (2),
Beautiful rose in rose,
Each furrow a seilloun
A little more from the small barrel.

They look like gunners,
Beautiful rose in rose,
They look like gunners,
The farmers without shoes.

The farmers with the barrels.

Beautiful rose in rose,
They all have the hat in their hands,
Go away, farmers.

Si pouorton ’n pan de maioun,

They bring a bread from house,
Beautiful rose in rose,
They bring a bread from house,
Of white bread they have not got enough.

In the farmers’ fashion.
