G
Oh look at me
     A
That sweet boy's plea
    G
His mother cried
    D                G
"My child's tied his laces"
G
Why must we move on
     A
From such happy lawns
     G
Into nostalgia's palm
    D           G
And feed on the traces

G
We all hop to the dance
   A
Or embarrass the parents
    G
Who should I please
  D           G
I go to sleep worrying

G 
That blood in the dark
     A
Will attract the sharks
            G
Who are not violent
       D           G
We all have hungry bellies

    Em            G
But where are the still unborn
          A                   G
Who could look at me with the one eye
          A               G
Who could look at me with no eyes
          A                 G
Who could look at me with me in their eyes

G
And oh what's pain
    A                       G
And oh what's sadness anyway
     D             G
Stop crying like a child

G
And oh what's graying 
    A                      G
And oh what's ageing anyway
         D              G
It's not growing in the wild

      Em             G
But I feel like I've just been born
         A                    G
When you look at me with your green eyes
        A                    G
And you look at me with your black eyes
        A                    G
And you look at me with your dead eyes

G   
And I can't understand
     A
When holding her hand
   G
So womanly
       D         G
I have to go and kiss her

G
And what a surprise
   A
To look in those eyes
         G
And find suddenly
   D           G
He is Jack the Ripper
                 D            G
Too suddenly, he was Jack the Ripper
     D             G
Stop crying like a child
            D             G  
She stopped crying like a child
D        G
Jack the Ripper
