David Hasselhoff — Murder, Murder lyrics

[newsboy]
Read about the 'ideous murder,
Profane, religious murder!

[first gentlemen]
The poor old bishop,
What a shock!

[street vendor]
Seen walkin' wiv 'is daughter,
A moment prior to slaughter!

[newsboy]
The shepherd tendin' to 'is flock!

[crowd]
'e died in a london slum-
A slave to martyrdom-
'e died without complaint!-
'e should be made a saint!-

'e's gone back 'ome to God!-
It all seems very odd!-
Why should it be,
This mystery? -

Murder, murder-
In the night air!
Murder, murder-
It's a nightmare!
Murder, murder-
It's a right scare,
Bloody murder
In the night!

Murder, murder-
Makes your heart thump!
Murder, murder-
Makes your nerves jump!
Murder, murder-
Makes your blood pump!
Bloody murder
In the night!

[congregation]
Dona eis, requiem

[priest]
Sweet death has taken
This brave
Man from us!

[congregation]
Requiem aeternam

[priest]
Friends, take what comfort
That you can from us!

[congregation]
Dona eis domine

[hyde]
General glossop! I'm happy to inform you that you at relieved of your duties, sir. All of them!

[a man]
Look at this, another murder,
Just like the other murder!
That's poor old general glossop, dead!

[a boy]
Last week the bishop copped it!
The bloke what done it 'opped it!
That feller must be off 'is 'ead!

[another crowd member]
That's two in the last four days!
This killer has fancy ways!

[a fourth]
To kill outside st paul's
Requires a lotta balls!

[a fifth]
He hates the upper class!

[a sixth]
He must be on 'is arse!

[crowd]
Who could he be?

[the boy]
Don't look at me!

[crowd]
" bloody murder in the night ! "

Murder, murder-
Doin' folks in-
Murder, murder-
In 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!
In the night!

[hyde]
Bessie, my love... You really should be more careful... Wearing your real diamonds out on the street. You never know whom you might encounter!

[upper and lower crust on the street]
London has a killer on the loose!
Could be a gang!
Gotta get 'is 'ead inside a noose!
The man must hang

[crowd]
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 pull wots 'is name in,
There's gonna be one flamin'
Row!

Murder, murder-
It's a curse, man!
Murder, murder-
It's perverse, man!
Murder, murder-
Nothing's worse than
Bloody murder
In the night!

[hyde]
Bad news from god, teddy!

[first newsboy]
Read about the worst two murders - !

[second newsboy]
Much worse than the first two murders!

[crowd]
That makes it murders three and four!

(variously)
They've murdered dear old bessie!-
I hear extremely messy!-
And poor old archie is no more!-

[women]
They say a lot of blood and gore!

[all]
That's four in the last eight days!
It's london's latest craze!

[second newsboy]
This time 'e was in park lane!
An 'e may come back again!

[women]
Until the killer's found
There's danger all around!

[crowd]
What can we do?
What can we do?
What can we do?
We wish we knew!

[crowd]
Catchin' such a madman could be hard!-
He'll kill!-
At will!-
Cos they're all so thick at scotland yard!-
No brains!-
No skill!-

[all]
He'll kill us, if we let him!
They'd better go and get him!

I know a way to net him!-
How?

Murder!
No metter who we're blamin'
Till they pull wot's 'is name in,
There's gonna be,
There's gonna be,
There's gonna be a flamin'
Row!

Murder, murder-
On our doorstep!
Murder, murder-
So, watch your step!
Murder, murder-
Take one more step,
You'll be murdered
In the night!
Murder, murder-
Once there's one done-
Murder, murder
Can't be undone!
Murder, murder
Lives in london!-
Bloody murder
In the night!
In the night!
