lyrics

You're going to kill
More than time today
You're going to cause
Terror on London's railway

CHORUS
You'd better be careful
You must remember that
Don't leave behind
Your black beaver hat

You see your victim
Mr Briggs a city gent
Against your youth a violent attack
The old man couldn't prevent

CHORUS

Trapped in his compartment
You stole his watch and chain
You bludgeoned him and robbed him
And threw him off the train

BRIDGE
His injured body was very soon found
He passed soon after that
In the carriage police did find
Blood and a beaver hat

They thought the hat belonged to Briggs
But that wasn't true
Because the hat belonged to the killer
And that killer was you, you, you

You have been careless
No disputing that
You left behind your own headwear
And took Mr Briggs' hat

You sold the chain to a jeweller
Who later identified you.
Soon the police had tracked you down
And wanted an interview.
The net was quickly closing in
But how you must have cursed
You boarded a ship bound for New York
But Scotland Yard got there first

Tried and hanged for murder
You should remember that
The vital piece of evidence
Was picking up his hat

Don't forget your hat guys, don't forget your hat
