Dear Mr. Doe,
I guess by now you must know
There's something wrong.
Johnny and Kay are safe and sound.
They won't stay that way for long.
You'll never, never see them again.
You'll never, never see them unless
You do as we say.

Tuesday the fourth at five o'clock
To the north of Tompkin Square
Look for the bench with three padlocks
And leave twenty thousand there.
Inside a paper bag on the black top.
Then walk away and never look back.
We'll drop off John and Kay.

Last but not least
If you should phone the police,
You'll learn the cost.
Five on the dot. Arrive alone.
We will not be double crossed.
You'll never, never see them again.
You'll never, never see them again.
You'll never, never see them
Unless you do as we say.
