MIDI file

Tenors: Silently, warily, we'll show that a grave —
Basses: Lies very handy for a trait'rous knave!
Tenors: Let us be prudent, lads, the while we are brave —
Basses: No one can tell how the villain might behave!
Shelton: Stealthily, cautiously, prudently peer,
Blackest of treason lies in ambush near.
Follow me! You will see nothing to fear!
I, as your alderman, will guard the rear!
Tenors: Silently, warily, we'll show that a grave —
Basses: Lies very handy for a trait'rous knave!
Tenors: Let us be prudent, lads, the while we are brave —
Basses: No one can tell how the villain might behave!
Martin, Crook & Dormer: Let us see who
shall be first to espy
Where the trait'rous knave doth lie!
On the tree speedily hang him high!
Up, lads, and at him! For who fears to die?
All: Then shoulder to shoulder, merry lads of the town,
'Prentice and journeyman of London renown;
Down with all rebel varlets! Down with them! Down!
Death to the traitors that dare defy the Crown!
Death to the traitors that dare defy the Crown!
Death to the traitors that defy the Crown!
