Jekyll And Hyde The Musical – Murder, Murder lyrics

NEWSBOYS
Second London murder! Murder! General Glossop killed on the steps o’ St. Paul’s Cathedral!

VARIOUS STREET PEOPLE
Look at this, another murder,
Just like the other murder!
That’s poor old General Glossop – dead!
Last week the bishop copped it!
The bloke what done it hopped it!
That feller must be off his ‘ead!

That’s two in the last four days-
This killer has fancy ways!
To kill outside St. Paul’s
Requires a lotta b****!

He hates the upper class!
He must be on ‘is a***!
Who could he be?
Don’t look at me!

VARIOUS GOSSIP LADIES
What a shame! – Dear General Glossop!
Hear there’s a lot of gossip!
Although it didn’t come from me!

Of course not! No! – Of course not!
What about that poor old Bishop?
That dreadful dirt they dish up!
Do you think it’s true?
It well could be!
Imagine!
Fancy!
Really!

I say that it goes to show
Some people we think we know
Aren’t all they might appear!
How right you are my dear!
It’s such a shocking thing!
But awfully interesting!
Who could it be?
Well, now – Let’s see!

STREET PEOPLE
Murder, Murder –
Doin’ folks in
Murder, Murder
Is the worst sin!
Murder, Murder
Has me screamin’
“bloody Murder
In the night!”

Murder, Murder
Makes me blood thin!
Murder, Murder
Makes me ‘ead spin!
Murder, Murder
Starts me drinkin’.
Bloody Murder
In the night!

VARIOUS GOSSIP LADIES
London has a killer on the loose!
Or a gang!
Either way – let ’em hang!

STREET PEOPLE
Gotta get ‘is head inside a noose!
Right away!
The police are no use!

Maybe his nerve will fail him!
They’ve gotta try to nail him!
They’ve gotta trail an’ jail him now!

Murder!
No matter who we’re blamin’,
Till they put wot’s-‘is-name in,
There’s gonna be one flamin’ row!

ALL
Murder, Murder,
It’s a curse, man!
Murder, Murder,
It’s perverse, man!
Murder, Murder,
Nothing’s worse than
Bloody Murder
In the night!
