It's a mystery to me - the game commences
For the usual fee - plus expenses
Confidential information - it'a a diary
This is my investigation - it's not a public inquiry

Treachery and treason - there's always an excuse for it
And when I find the reason I still can't get used to it

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
