The Lyrics

lookin' at a housewife
poised to kill
i don't have to worry
cause i always bend them to my will
bruised up throats left every night
escapin' 'neath the dim streetlights
i say
look at me...look at me
i'm terrible...i'm terrible
i've come for thee
just slip and you'll be harmed by
the boston strangler

i've been around here all along, baby
i'll slay you, for your kind is dumb
you let me in your kitchen, darlin'
you don't know that i'm the one

you'll get crimson in your face for sure
this surely is your darkest night
i'm mad, you see...there ain't no cure
and boston's churnin'...so full of fright

just slip and you'll be harmed by
the boston strangler
just slip and you'll be harmed by
the boston strangler

I took my wife on a trip to Boston. There's a knock on the hotel room door. Who is it? "The Boston Strangler!" It's for you, dear! I went back to Boston the next year. There's a knock on the hotel room door. Who is it? "The Boston Strangler!" I gave last year!

I was 5 or 6 years old and living in Concord (around 20 miles W of Boston) when the Strangler was wringing necks. I have a vague recollection of looking at a diagram in a newspaper back then that gave a sort of schematic explanation of the scenes of the crimes, or something like that... *shudder*...that was a creepy time. Good write, Alvin.
