My Name Lyrics

    Strong men tremble when they hear it!
    They've got cause enough to fear it!

    It's much blacker than they smear it!
    Nobody mentions...
    My name!

    Rich men hold their five-pound notes out --
    Saves me emptying their couats out.
    They know I could tear their throats out
    Just to live up to...
    My name!

    Wiv me
    Jemmy in me hand,
    Lemme see the man who dares
    Stop me.
    Taking what I may
    He can start to say his prayers!

    Biceps like an iron girder,
    Fit for doing of a murder,
    If I just so much as heard a
    Bloke even whisper...
    My name! Bill Sikes...

    Some Toff, slumming wiv his valet,
    Bumped into me in the alley
    Now is eyes'll never tally
    He'd never heard of ...
    My name!

    One bloke
    Used to boast the claim
    He could take my name in vain...
    Poor bloke...
    Shame 'e was so green
    Never was 'e seen again!

    Once bad - What's the good of turning?
    In hell, I'll be there-a-burning
    Meanwhile, thing of what I'm earning
    All on account of...
    My name!

    What is it? What is it? What is it?

    NANCY spoken
    Bill Sikes
