Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Murder, Murder lyrics

NEWSBOY:
Read about the 'ideous murder,
Profane, religious murder!

FIRST GENTLEMAN:
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 are 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 -
Is 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 wot's-'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 it extremely messy! -
And poor old Archie is no more! -

WOMAN:
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 killers 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 matter 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 -
Or 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!
