Jack the Ripper

 Up and down the goddamn town

Up and down the goddamn town
Policemen try to find me,
But I ain't a chap yet to drown
In drink, or Thames or, sea.

I've no time to tell you how
I came to be a killer,
But you should know, as time will show
That I'm society's pillar.

I'm not a butcher
I'm not a Yid
Nor yet a foreign skipper,
But I'm your own light-hearted friend
Yours truly,
Jack the Ripper


Jack the Ripper (?). Asesino en serie.
