That's an old photo, but yes it's her.   I'll tell you what I already told the cops
             F
You'd better write this down, I don't want to repeat it.  After we're done here, I'd prefer to forget the name of...
C*
Jackie the Clipper, I used to know her,
        F       C       F          C    G
well as well as someone ever could know her
C*
Mind like a zipper, honing her art while she was 
F        C       F         C    G
holed up in that darkened apartment
C*
Nobody sicker, can't say I miss her
    F              C         F            C    G
Not after what she did to anybody who'd submit to
C*
Jackie the Clipper, no one has seen her
           F         C     F          C  G
Since they fired her after all of the horror 
F             G             C       F          
If you've got no  - thing   nice to say, there's nothing left to say 
C                     F   Em   G        C                   F  Em   G
God I'm tired. Can we end this soon?    All these questions wear me down

You better press record, I don't want to repeat it 
After we're done here I will try to erase the name of 
Jackie the Clipper I used to know her, well as well as someone ever could know her 
Mind like a zipper, honing her art while she was holed up in that darkened apartment 
F           G     C    F
It would be charity to say that Jackie was careless, she wasn't careless...
C*                                     F        C     F         C  G
Jackie the killer, Jackie the overconfident and under-competent butcher 
Jackie the Clipper, no one has seen her since they fired her after all of the horror 

F             G       C       F               G          C       F
If you've got nothing nice to say, we already know which one you mean
    F             G       C       F
And if you've got nothing else to say, there's nothing left to say
