Literal English Translation Original Latin Line

Do not wonder, o Rufus, why no woman
  wants to place her dainty thigh under you,
not if you should undermine her with a gift of rare clothes
  or with the pleasures of a transparent jewel.
A certain bad story hurts you, by which a wild billy-goat
  is said to dwell under the valley of your upper arms.
All fear this; nor is it strange: for it is a very bad
  beast, nor one with which a pretty girl would lie.
Therefore, either kill the cruel pest of the noses
  or cease to wonder why they flee.

Noli admirari quare tibi femina nulla,
  Rufe, velit tenerum supposuisse femur,
non si illam rarae labefactes munere vestis
  aut perluciduli deliciis lapidis.
laedit te quaedam mala fabula, qua tibi fertur
  valle sub alarum trux habitare caper.
hunc metuunt omnes; neque mirum: nam mala valde est
  bestia, nec quicum bella puella cubet.
quare aut crudelem nasorum interfice pestem,
  aut admirari desine cur fugiant.
