  • There's no method in my madness, no craft, no guile
    No expertise, no self assuring smile
    No wizardry or witchcraft, no crass deceit
    No dark conspiracies, I stand on my own two feet
    I'm coming through just like jack ruby

    I ragged around the edges but I got control
    There's no way around it and I got control
    I reach out for my program, still got control
    Straight down to business, who needs control
    I've got panache just like jack ruby

    I don't beg forgiveness, I don't beg at all
    But I beg to differ 'cause I got the ball
    There was no invitation, you're not my type
    And what's gone, it ain't worth having, kiss it all goodbye
    Right on the money just like jack ruby Writer/s: IAN GILLAN, IAN PAICE, JON LORD, ROGER GLOVER, STEVE MORSE
