Nobody saw our sails on the horizon
Nobody heard propellers in the dawn
Nobody smelt our coalfires burning
Nobody knew - under the radar we crept on

Well here we come on the run
Our coal fires are burning
Here we come fife and drum
Propellers in the dawn
Here we come on the run
Our coal fires are burning
Here we come on the run
Under the rader we crept on

Nobody saw our broad sides out their window
Nobody heard our trapdoor swinging open
Nobody saw our cannons taking aim
Nobody heard my whispered "Fire - blow their sides!"

Well here we come on the run
Our coal fires are burning
Here we come fife and drum
Propellers in the dawn
Here we come on the run
Our coal fires are burning
Here we come on the run
Under the rader we crept on

Somebody heard the cannonfire ringing
Somebody saw the window shattering
Somebody saw the hooks and tethers flying
Somebody saw my crew with swords drawn coming in

Well here we come on the run
Our coal fires are burning
Here we come fife and drum
Propellers in the dawn
Here we come on the run
Our coal fires are burning
Here we come on the run
Under the rader we crept on
