The Halloween Jack is a real cool cat

And he lives on top of Manhattan Chase

The elevator's broke, so he slides down a rope

Onto the street below, oh Tarzan, go man go

Meet his little hussy with his ghost town approach

Her face is sans feature, but she wears a Dali brooch

Sweetly reminiscent, something mother used to bake

Wrecked up and paralysed, Diamond Dogs are stabilised

- he really evokes Dylan at times. Great quiz.
