Jack the Ripper awoke in the evening
and put on his long black coat.
He sat at his table, inked up his pen
and in the gathering dark he wrote:
"From Hell, from Hell, oh Mr. Lusk
from hottest hell I write.
Tell the police to stay awake,
I'll be out tonight.
I'll search the streets and alleyways
and find myself a whore.
Then take her where the lights are low
and cut her to the core.
Across the throat and up the middle,
oh it feels so sweet.
Clip a kidney, take it home,
fry it up and eat.
I'm not a skipper or a leather apron,
just merely a sharp steel fan.
I'm off to work now dear sir boss,
catch me when you can."
