Lyrics

they have never caught me and they never will

they have never known me i am invisible

as ether that surrounds your earth at night i lie unseen

i am not a human being

 

as i see fit i come and go from hottest hell

the axeman is a spirit and a cunning demon fell

i come to claim my victims from your night and leave no trace

i have not a human face

 

jouez ce soir le jazz orleanians ici

joyez ce soir le jazz s'il vous aimez la vie

 

alone the axeman knows it who the prey will be

and each poor soul is sent below to keep me company

my axe besmeared with blood and brains alas the only clues

i am not like one of you

 

so tell the new orleans police they should not rile me

as a spirit i am fair but it's best not to beguile me

their efforts are a joke to me and all of hades too

and by this i am amused

 

jouez ce soir le jazz orleanians ici

jouez ce soir le jazz s'il vous aimez la vie

 

again i shall return and others more shall die

orleanians take cover for you know that it is i

as horrible as this may seem much worse i could bestow

so much worse than you could know

 

and so to you i'll offer this alternative

when the next time i come stalking if you want to live

one thing on earth that i like best each orleanian has

play for me tonight your jazz

 

jouez ce soir le jazz orleanians ici

jouez ce soir le jazz s'il vous aimez la vie

 

i'm cold and so for now i crave my warm tartarus

my axe and i'll be back to slay the fools who care to dare us

but if you will not cross me you'll not be my next repast

allons jouez ce soir le jazz

 

jouez ce soir le jazz orleanians ici

jouez ce soir le jazz s'il vous aimez la vie
