[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 !
