I finished this coat, inspired by “Capt. Morgan” rum, as a xmas present for my bf. It is so pimp.

Tarantara!

Been thinking about pirates lately…

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!

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!

POLICE: (softly) Tarantara, tarantara!

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!

With cat-like tread

POLICE: Tarantara!

in silence dread,

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.

(From “Pirates of Penzance” – Gilbert & Sullivan)
