1. Ich spüre die Ameise auf meinem Bein, Muttergottes!
Und wenn du sie spürst, Mädchen, ach, schiebe und drücke sie, dass sie weitergeht.
2. … auf dem Oberschenkel …
3. … auf dem Bauch ...

Anf if you feel it, girl, ah, push and shove it, that it will go forth.
2. … on my thigh …
3. … on my belly ...
