MIDI File

All: O he' bold banditti are we.
Quiller: We are brigands bold and free
As you will ever see, and we're bad!
Men: We're bad!
Quiller: As we can be!
Men: Si! We are bad as can be.
Quiller: With our stilettos keen we prowl and scowl and howl
Have a care! We bring despair.
Tenors: We bring despair!
Basses: We bring despair.
Quiller: All we do and dare
Men: We do and dare.
Quiller: O! Hey then beware
Of our rollicking bandit crew.
To stab in dark we think a lark
and dreadful deeds we do.
Men: Hey then beware
Of our rollicking bandit crew.
All: To stab in dark we think a lark,
We prowl and scowl with hist and hark,
And all men quake with fear
Quiller: Whenever we chance to appear!
Men: Well may they quake with fear.
