The Thief Chase

The Thief Chase Lyrics

Bricks and bones! 

Sticks and stones! 

I chased a thief through twenty zones. 


I found his hat 

On Ararat, 

And hurried on as quick as scat. 


In a day or two 

I found his shoe 

Where he had sailed for Timbuktu. 


I met the goat 

That ate his coat 

Upon the road to Terre Haute. 


At last all worn 

And quite forlorn 

I chased him up the Matterhorn.
