Some people they call me Jack
Some people they call me insane
I'm looking for somebody
And I don't even know her name

I might be looking for you
Wherever you may be
For there is something I've got to do to you honey
And it's between you and me

Now you might think it's fun
Or maybe it's a joke
But you've got plenty of reason to worry honey
'Cause you wouldn't stand a hope

There's a killer on the loose again
A killer on the loose
There's a killer on the loose again
A lady killer on the loose

Now I'm not trying to be nasty
Or I'm not trying to make you scared
But there's a killer on the loose
Or haven't you heard?

He'll be walking around this town
Just about midnight
Yes, that's Chinatown
That's right, that's right

Now you might think I'm messing
Or he don't exist
But honey, I'm confessing
I'm a mad sexual rapist

There's a killer on the loose again
A killer on the loose
There's a killer on the loose again
A lady killer on the loose

I'll be standing in the shadows of love
Waiting for you
Don't unzip your zipper
'Cause you know I'm Jack, The Ripper
Now don't wail, don't

There's a killer on the loose again
(Standing in the shadows)
A killer on the loose
There's a killer on the loose again
(Coming to get you)
A lady killer on the loose

There's a killer on the loose again
(Standing in the shadows of love)
A killer on the loose
There's a killer on the loose again
([Incomprehensible])
A lady killer on the loose

There's a killer on the loose again
(Standing in the shadow)
A killer on the loose
(Of love)
There's a killer on the loose again
A lady killer on the loose
(You better watch out)

There's a killer on the loose again
A killer on the loose
(Play that back, check it back)
There's a killer on the loose again
