Murder, Murder is a song on the 1986 Demo recording. It is the earliest version of the song which has appeared in every incarnation of the show. Lyrically it is very different from every other incarnation of the song, and shows that early versions of the show combined the story of Jekyll and Hyde with that of Jack The Ripper, a concept which was later dropped. This is most prominently shown in Hyde killing prostitutes instead of the Board of Governors.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

WORKING GIRL 1
Did you hear there's been a murder?

WORKING GIRL 2
Oh no, not another murder!

WORKING GIRL 3
Another working girl was killed.


WORKING GIRL 1
Last night Marie was murdered!

WORKING GIRL 2
Oh no, Marie was murdered?

WORKING GIRL 3
Another one of us was killed.


WORKING GIRL 1
That's two in the last five nights.

WORKING GIRL 2
That's two who've paid the price.


WORKING GIRL 1
First Nettie, now Marie!

WORKING GIRL 3
Could the next be you or me!


WORKING GIRL 1
What will we do to eat!

WORKING GIRL 2
If we can't walk the streets!


WORKING GIRLS
What will we do?
What can we do?


PUNTER 1
Did you hear there's been a murder?

Leaves your blood cold!
Murder, murder!
Much goes untold!

Never lets go!
Murder, murder!
In the night!

Murder, murder!
In the shadows!
Murder, murder!
Once it takes hold!
Murder, murder!
