LYRICS:
Pirates:
With Cat-Like Tread
Upon our prey we steal
In silence dread
Our cautious way we feel
No sound at all
We never speak a word
A fly's foot-fall
Would be distinctly heard

Police:
Tarantara, Tarantara.

Pirates:
So stealthily the pirate creeps
While all the household soundly sleeps
Come friends, who plough the sea
Truce to navigation
Take another station
Let's vary piracy
With a little burglary

Samuel:
Here's your crowbar
And your centre bit
Your life preserver
You may want to hit
Your silent matches
Your dark lantern seize
Take your file
And your skeletonic keys

Police:
Tarantara,

Pirates:
With Cat like tread

Police:
Tarantara

Pirates:
In silence dread

Pirates:
With Cat-Like Tread
Upon our prey we steal
In silence dread
Our cautious way we feel
No sound at all
We never speak a word
A fly's foot-fall
Would be distinctly heard

Come friends, who plough the sea
Truce to navigation
Take another station
Let's vary piracy
With a little burglary

With cat like tread
Upon our prey we steal
In silence dread
Our cautious way we feel
