A fair, but not wholly convincing, attempt at an essentially English catch by a naturalised Italian. This edition comprises a modern realisation, and a statement of the piece in its original specialised format.
Lyrics: Anon

Tis strange, Sister Ruth, that the spirit within
Should set you a-preaching and tempt me to sin.
When you mutter and groan and cry, Ah! Oh! Ah! Oh!
Sure, you feel some emotions in the regions below.
For whene'er I breathe short, sigh and lift up my eyes,
The spirit then moves me all the time 'twixt my thighs.
