Jeff Beck – The Hangman's Knee lyrics

Hangman hangman
Slack your noose
Slack it oh slack it
Slack if for a while
There ain't no use in your hurrying me
Ain't nothing gonna change things now

Oh I ain't trying to prove your judges wrong
And your jury oh your jury
I guess I know the way out
If you kill me with my canvas shirt
Good god you can put my lawyer in jail

It's just this twenty-two minutes to prepare yourself
I haven't been in this position before
Wash your hands, get your rabbit tail
Find your waistcoat lock the door

Get your rabbit tail
Well yeah
Get your rabbit tail and lock the door

Listen to this now
Hangman slack your noose
Oh slack it please slack it
Oh would you slack it for a while
Give me one more chance
There ain't no use in you hurrying me
Good god nothing gonna stop me now
Oooo don't you worry
Cause you never get your
Yeah well might get your waistcoat on
