Does anyone know the origin of these words?

"I'm not the killing man,
I'm the killing man's son.
But I'll do all the killing,
Until the killing man comes."

I saw this in someone's signature on another forum.

This was from the first Google result:
"The Killer Man's Son was legendary art, created in the mid-80's by Reuben Dominguez of the 75th Ranger Regiment and distributed to all three Ranger Battalions. Unfortunately, many of the original prints were destroyed by command elements as the Killer Man's Son, although stylish in his OG107's and Black Beret, was a bit too aggressive and well-armed to adorn the barracks wall. A coveted few copies are cherished by Rangers throughout the land."

Ran across this image available on a t-shirt at Ranger Quatermaster (rangerqm.com)

It was (I believe) poster art from some time back ... the t's are out of stock, but the posters are available


Edit: Crap! I was slow on the draw too
