The earliest incarnation of The ballad of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde from the 1986 Demo recording . Lyrically, it is quite different from the later 1987 version.

LyricsEdit

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
One and the same
On opposite sides
Took a town on a terrible ride
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
A curious tale I have to tell
Of good intentions gone straight to hell!

Dr. Jekyll so good and kind
A gentleman always so refined
But lying in wait was another side
All that's evil personified
No matter what the doctor tried
He was trapped forever in Mr. Hyde

And innocent victims and guilty alike
Now are no longer with us; they're dreaming of breathing tonight

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
By day honest and saving lives
At night he was fond of homicide
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Jekyll was brilliant, devote, and commend
Hyde was maniacal, a beast 'till the end

Never go out on a misty night
Beware of the shadows
Beware of the light
Round every corner expecting a fright
Hyde might be waiting for you
Hyde might be waiting for you

Never go out on a misty night
Beware of the shadows
Beware of the light
Around every corner expecting a fright
Hyde might be waiting for you
Hyde might be waiting for you

And innocent victims and guilty alike
Now are no longer with us; they're dreaming of breathing tonight

The chemical lied, and then Hyde existed
Jekyll had tried but could not resist him
Something inside had snapped and twisted in his mind

All that was sane had somehow gone mad
All that he gained took away all he had
All that remained was all that was bad
Mr. Hyde

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Neither one was to be denied
All of London was terrified
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Edward Hyde

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
All of London was terrified
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Edward Hyde!
