Words by Ed. Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

For your protection and correction now we go patrolling.
With clubs in hand we do Command, yes, sometimes with a nod.
With consternation to the station trams we take a rolling.
The rogues they fear when we draw near, the gallant midnight squad.

Shout hip hurrah for the law, now we're off for duty.
Hunt the burglar with his booty, take him into quod.
Shout hip hurrah for the law, we are marching.
Guarding the city when our duty calls, hurrah, for the midnight squad.

Along the highways and the by-ways thieves about we seize them;
From twelve o'clock each lonely block we cover every tod.
Oh, in the areas all the Marys love to meet policemen;
Then we catch on in the early morn, the gallant midnight squad.-Cho.

For transportation, reformation, we arrest the prowler;
The drunken bum, out of a slum, we move him with a prod.
With penetration, observation, we detect the growler;
We've but to wink to get a drink, the gallant midnight squad.-Chorus.
