(dog barks)

(leonard cohen sample)
suzanne takes you down to her place by the river
you can hear the boats go by
you can spend the night beside her
and you know...

(verse one)
she's around here somewhere
somewhere here she's hidden
somewhere in a canal by camden town, underneath a bridge
that's where he said he put her bits and bobs straight after what he did
everytime i pass the lock i stop and wonder where she is

you see suzanne was quite a looker
quite tasty for a high street hooker
she had a nice shape, nice arse, nice breasts
i guess that's why he took her
but then again, you know what blud, this guy was kinda messed
so suzanne's death was probably more to do with torture than it was to do with sex

never the less he was a sick, sick cunt there aint no doubt about that
his mental health was in a state but no-one really knew about that
cause he lived alone, all on his own, and never spoke to neighbors
plus the guys next door was never home cause they was always out raving

which made it pretty convenient
come to when he dished out pain (???) he weren't lenient
still no-one could hear he screaming when
her blood starting squirting on the ceiling and
dried to the wall til the paint started peeling and
she's cut real bad but still breathing and
begging him to stop but he won't cause he's eviling
he aint about to start reasoning...

(leonard cohen sample)
suzanne takes you down down
takes you down to her place near the river river
near the river

(verse two)
it's 10 o'clock on a friday night
suzanne don't know it but soon she'll die
she's working the streets like she does every night
pulling in punters left and right
she sees one guy, he says 'hi, do you wanna fuck'
'only if the price it right!' suzanne says with a smile on her face
screen goes blank now their back at his place

back at his place suzanne takes off her clothes
while he makes her a drink in the kitchen
thats what she's thinking when she hears metal objects clinking
'need any help?' she says loud and clear
he don't answer her back
he's only in the next room, not like her can't hear, why's he going on like that?
suzanne picks up a towel to cover her breasts and on
and goes and sees wagwan...

(scream) suzanne screams so shocked at what she's just seen
he's holding a knife and his eyes look broc
sue makes a run for the door but it's locked
slice slice slice chop chop chop
suzanne screaming, begging him to stop
but he won't stop
and he don't stop
not til she stops struggling
she's lying on the floor in a pool of her blood
he goes into the other room to get something

(chainsaw noises)

(news announcer)
the main suspect in the notorious camden lock murder investigation was convicted today
41 year old (blanked out), dubbed the camden ripper, faces life imprisonment after a jury convicted him guilty of all charges
the body of suzanne (smith), his fifth victim has still not been found, and police have given up the search
(camden ripper) claims he threw her in the canal after decapitating her head and severing her arms and legs from her torso
other breaking news today...

(verse three)
so we come to end of the story
suzanne died a death all gory
along with a string of other girls he already killed cause they offered to pleasure him oraly
now banged up not a threat now a figure
last you'll hear of the camden ripper
unless of course he escapes then you better give a second thought about walking round showing off your figure

as for suzanne, like i said man, her body parts still never been found
remember next time your walking round camden lock to keep an eye out
cause you might see a bit of her floating by
crouched on the bridge smoking weed getting high
cause he said shes there and he need not lie
now hes going to live in jail for the rest of his life...

(leonard cohen sample)
takes you
takes you down
near the near the river
