I'm not a butcher, I'm not a Yid......
I am aware as are most on here that the following was quoted by Sir Melville Macnaghton in his memoirs, it being one of the first communications he read concerning the Ripper;
"I'm not a butcher
I'm not a Yid
Nor yet a foreign skipper
But I'm your own light-hearted friend
Jack the Ripper"
However I'd be interested to know the source for the 'apparent' preceding two verses that appear as follows;
"Up and down the goddamn town
policemen try to find me
But I ain't a chap yet to drown
In drink or Thames or sea.
I've no time to tell you how
I came to be a killer
But you should know, as time will show
That I'm society's pillar
Ay information welcome as I'm unable to find any pointers ;-)
