Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: Jack The Ripper

JACK THE RIPPER
/Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/

I got a woman
She rules my house with an iron fist
I got a woman
She rules my house with an iron fist
She screams out Jack the Ripper
Every time I try to give that girl a kiss

O well, I got a woman
She strikes me down with a fist of lead
O, I got a woman
She strikes me down with a fist of lead
We bed in a bucket of butcher's knives
I awake with a hatchet hanging over my head

Well you know the story of the viper
It's long and lean with poison tooth
O well, you know the story of the viper
It's long, it's lean, it's got a poison tooth
Well, they're hissing under the floorboards
Hanging down in bunches from my roof

O, I got a woman
She just hollers what she wants from where she is
O well, I got a woman
She just hollers what she wants from where she is
She screams out Jack the Ripper
Every time I try to give that girl a kiss
