Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

"Jack The Ripper - Live from KCRW"

[Spoken: Nick Cave & Viewers]
[Nick Cave:] Take up the curtains for "Jack The Ripper", yeah!
[Viewers:]  Yeah!
[Nick  Cave:] [?] One, two! One, two, one, two!

[Verse 1]
Well, I got a woman
She strikes me down with an iron fist
(Yeah-eah-ah,  yeah-eah-ah)
Well,  I got a woman
She strikes me down with an iron fist
(Yeah-eah-ah,  yeah-eah-ah)
She screams out Jack the Ripper
Every time I try to give that girl a kiss
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)

[Verse 2]
Well  I got a woman
She strikes me down with a fist of lead
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)
Oh yeah
Well I got a woman
She strikes me down with a fist of lead
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)
We bed in a bucket of butcher's knives
I awake with a hatchet hanging over my head
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)

[Verse 3]
Well you know the story of the viper
It's long and lean with a poison tooth
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)
Oh yeah
You know the story of the viper
It's long, it's lean, it's got a poison tooth
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)
Well they're hissing under the floorboards
Hanging down in bunches from my roof
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)
Oh yeah

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 4]
Well I got a woman
She just hollers what she wants from where she's at
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)
Well I got a woman
She just hollers what she wants from where she's at
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)
She screams out Jack the Ripper
Every time I try to give that girl a kiss
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)
(Yeah-eah-ah, yeah-eah-ah)

[Spoken: Nick Cave]
