Who's that tapping at the garden gate? Tap, tap, tapping at the garden gate? Ev'ry night I have heard of late, Somebody tapping at the garden gate. What, you sly little puss! don't know! Why do you blush and falter so? What are you looking for under the chair? The tap, tap, tapping comes not from there. Chorus - Ev'ry night about half past eight, There's tap, tap, tapping at the garden gate. Ev'ry night about half past eight, There's tap, tap, tapping at the garden gate.
Oh! you sly little "Fox" you know, Fidgetting [sic] about until you go, Drop'd the sugar spoon? why there it lies, Bless the girl, where are your eyes? Were I able to leave my chair, Soon, would I find out who is there; Don't tell me you think it's the cat, C[ats d]on't tap, tap, tap, like that, Chorus - Cats don't know when it's half past eight, And come tap, tapping at the garden gate. Cats don't know when it's half past eight, And come tap, tapping at the garden gate.
