WITH CAT LIKE TREAD

Gilbert And Sullivan

Pirates: (very loud)
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:
(softly) 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 piracee
with a little burglaree!
Come, friends, who plough the sea,
truce to navigation;
take another station;
let's vary piracee
with a little burglaree!
Samuel:
(distributing implements to various members of the gang)
here's your crowbar and your centrebit,
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,
(enter king, frederic and ruth)
all (fortissimo).
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 piracee
with a little burglaree!
With cat-like tread,
upon our prey we steal;
in silence dread,
our cautious way we feel.
