Lyrics and Chords

[Intro] = [Riff]

Verse 1:
       Am
You're in for surprise,
You're in for a shock
In London town streets,
When there's darkness and fog,

     C            G
When you least expect me
    F              E
And you turn your back,
        Am
I'll attack.

Verse 2:
    Am
I smile when I'm sneaking,
Thru shadows by the wall.
I laugh whilst I'm creeping,
Though you won't hear me at all.

C          G
Oh hear my warning
 F               E
Never turn your back
        Am
On the ripper.

Verse 3:
        Am
You'll soon shake with fear,
Never knowing if I'm near.
I'm sly and I'm shameless,
Nocturnal and nameless.

   C            G
Except for The Ripper
F          E
Or if you like,
           Am
Jack The Knife.

Instrumental:
Am ... Em ...

Verse 4:
     Am
Any back alley street
Is where we'll probably meet,
Underneath a gas lamp
Where the air's cold and damp.

       Am
I'm a nasty surprise,
       F7
I'm a devil in disguise,
       Em
I'm a footstep at night,
         Am
I'm a scream out with fright.

C            G
Oh, hear my warning,
 F               E
Never turn your back
        Am
On the ripper.

Coda:
     Am
The ripper.
     Am
The ripper...
