I remember it was late one night In the middle of a dream Woke up in a pool of sweat Thought I heard a scream Ran over to the window sill Stuck my head out for a peek Dressed in black was a man I didn't recognise Running down my back street My heart skipped a beat
[Chorus x2] You better watch out, there's a stranger in town You better watch out when he comes around Don't make a sound
The morning paper and the head-lines read:Danger to the queen Buckingham Palace better tighten things up The son of a bitch is mean. Vendors on the corner just doin' their job Acting like nothing's new Scotland Yard's still looking for him But he doesn't leave A single clue
You better watch out
Who's this man who fell out of the sky? What's he done and where's he live? How can a man who's a criminal be a hero to the kids? The old couple swear that the Riper's back They say it's him all right. The young girl says it's Jesus and he won't be back again Tonight I wonder who's right ?
