Rough? OK, here goes:
There's a crowd here, there's a crowd there, my lover is not among them, light, lightly
On the banks of Newfoundland my beloved waits
Ah, I see him coming in the distance
He rides a black & white horse
A white glove in his right hand
And in the other, a silver (?? missing letters? Maybe die?)
My dowry is in it
Crowded now
But it'll have more room
Between Paris and Rouen
And from Rouen till Fecamp.

Usually these songs repeat the 1st line then not the second, which is repeated as the first line of the next verse.
