MIDI File

Basses: Keep all in step!
Keep all in step! Keep all in step!
Tenors: The night is dark and low'ring,
All: As we the pass our scouring,
Poor Rip we search for still,
Basses: And much against our will!
Tenors: Although we're men undaunted,
All: We know this place is haunted,
And 'tis not very clear
Basses: Who may be lurking near!
All: What's that within the brake?
'Twas only our mistake!
Tenors: The night is dark and low'ring,
All: As we the pass our scouring,
Poor Rip we search for still,
Basses: And much against our will!
Tenors: Although we're men undaunted,
All: We know this place is haunted,
And 'tis not very clear
Basses: Who may be lurking near!
All: Ah!
