Jack Ruby

(Gillan, Glover, Lord, Morse, Paice)

There's no method in
My madness
No craft no guile
No expertise
No self assuring smile
No wizardry or witchcraft
No crass deceit
No dark conspiracies I stand on
My own two feet
I'm coming through
Just like Jack Ruby

I'm ragged around the edges
But I got control
There's no way around it
And I got control
I reach out for my program
Still got control
Straight down to business
Who needs control
I've got panache
Just like jack Ruby

I don't beg forgiveness
I don't beg at all
But I beg to differ
Cos I got the ball
There was no invitation
You're not my type
And what's gone
It ain't worth having
Kiss it all good bye
Right on the money
Just like Jack Ruby
