Jack The Ripper
Screaming Lord Sutch Lyrics


Huh-uh-huh-uh-huh-uh-huh-uh, aaaaaaaah!
Wuaaaaah
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper

There's a man who walks the streets of London late at night
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
With a little black bag that's oh-so tight
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
He's got a big black cloak hangin' down his back
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
Well, that's a one big cat I just a hate to fight
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper

When he walks down the streets
To every girl he meets, he says, is your name Mary Blood?
Uaaaaaaah!

The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper

When she walks down the streets, he's never far behind
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
With his little black bag and his one tracked mind
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
Well, he nearly catches up when the lights go down
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
'Cause that's the time he starts his dirty, uh, chop-around
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper

When he walks down the streets
To every girl he meets, he says, is your name Mary Blood?
Uaaaaaaah!

The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper

Scotland Yard'll never catch him, 'cause he's a much too clever
He's much too clever
Mm, but if they do, man, they'll get: The Ripper - yeah!

The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper

Well, the streets of London kinda never safe
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
Whenever Jack The Ripper ever shows his face
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
So, you pretty little girlies, take a-my advice
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
And don't walk the streets of London late at night
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper

When he walks down the streets
To every girl he meets, he says, is your name Mary Blood?
Uaaaaaaah!

The Ripper, Jack The Ripper
The Ripper, Jack The Ripper

Wuaaaaah ....

This pre-dates all punk rock, metal, and even most Halloween costumes. He is a visionary.

@Alessio C. The original was Screamin' Jay Hawkins almost ten years before this act.

Screaming Lord Sutch - Jack The Ripper (live 1964) 1313pm 20.1.22 prince charles' fav band/act... in fact olde charles voted for this kiddie. lol... dunno why... maybe it was a hint re: olde ripper street? anyow; talking of punx... yawwwwwwn... we move on to brainbombs' interpretation (which inspired more songs by said band than a one off novelty composition) and, of course, the horrors' version - which was much more amiable and musically inspiring than the rest... the stigma of the ripper being a fav of mine... the name? monikers are monikers and do in no way count for anything where mass murderers are concerned or where reformatory thinking is concerned...

Met him in the early 60's. I was playing in the ballroom of a hotel in Doncaster. He was a guest of the hotel & was very encouraging to my band. He really was a gentleman that night & I have never forgotten his kindness to us. RIP.

Garluth

what was your band called?

Paul Graham

Absolutely magnificent! This was years before Alice Cooper and his "shock rock" days. And it's easy to see where Dave Vanian of The Damned got his look.

Anne Robinson

Exactly what I was thinking
