D'oyly Carte Opera Company A Rollicking Band Of Pirates We


CHORUS AND SOLO: A rollicking band of pirates we

(Chorus of Pirates without, in the distance)

PIRATES: A rollicking band of pirates we,
Who, tired of tossing on the sea,
Are trying their hand at a burglaree,
With weapons grim and gory.

SERGEANT: Hush, hush! I hear them on the manor
poaching,
With stealthy step the pirates are approaching.

PIRATES: We are not coming for plate or gold;
A story General Stanley's told;
We seek a penalty fifty-fold,
For General Stanley's story.

POLICE: They seek a penalty

PIRATES: Fifty-fold!
We seek a penalty

POLICE: Fifty-fold!

ALL: They (We) seek a penalty fifty-fold,
For General Stanley's story.

SERGEANT: They come in force, with stealthy stride,
Our obvious course is now-to hide.

POLICE: Tarantara! Tarantara! etc.

(Police conceal themselves in aisle. As they do so, the
Pirates, with RUTH and FREDERIC, are seen appearing at
ruined window. They enter cautiously, and come down
stage on tiptoe. SAMUEL is laden with burglarious tools
and pistols, etc.)
