With Cat-Like Tread lyrics

With Cat-Like Tread

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
