The Liquidator
Will soon be coming around
You won’t feel safer
Until you get out of town
He’s an eraser
He’ll rub you out like a light
And for a chaser
He’ll kiss your woman good-night

He’s a jackal and a Romeo, you know
The devil in disguise
There’s no telling where a girl would go, you know
To gaze into his eyes
With the snapping of the fingertips of him
He’ll take your life away
And a whisper from the smiling lips of him
Will take your wife away

The Liquidator
Will soon be getting to you
You’ll wake up later
Somewhere up in the blue
The undertaker
Would never try to deny
That the Liquidator
Is a hell of a guy

The Liquidator

The Liquidator
Music by Lalo Schifrin and lyrics by Peter Callander

This is the title theme of the 1965 movie ‘The Liquidator’ released in December 1965 on the soundtrack album.
The original soundtrack version with the orchestra directed by Lalo Schifrin himself has been re-released on CD on the 1995 US collection Goldsinger – The Best of Shirley Bassey.A completely different recording was made on December 19th 1965 and released in January 1966 on the UK Columbia single DB 7811. This was Shirley’s last A-side for Columbia before signing to United Artist Records. In the US in November 7 1966 a United Artists single UA 50099 had been released. One version was directed by Tony Osborne and another by Arthur Greenslade. One of these singles contained the version which is available on many CD collections digitally remastered, for example on Bassey – The EMI/UA Years 1959 – 1979. Shirley also performed the song on a BBC special “Show Of The Week” in 1966.

A complete re-issue of the original soundtrack album on CD is not available. This is even worse considering that it also contains My Liquidator, the movie end title sung by Shirley Bassey. ‘The Liquidator’ is a spy thriller from 1965 with film stars like Rod Taylor, Trevor Howard, and Jill St. John.
