  • It's a mystery to me
    The game commences
    For the usual fee
    Plus expenses
    Confidential information
    It's in a diary
    This is my investigation
    It's not a public inquiry

    I go checking out the report
    Digging up the dirt
    You get to meet all sorts
    In this line of work
    Treachery and treason
    There's always an excuse for it
    And when I find the reason
    I still can't get used to it

    And what have you got at the end of the day ?
    What have you got to take away ?
    A bottle of whisky and a new set of lies
    blinds on the window and a pain behind the eyes

    Scarred for life
    No compensation
    Private investigations
