Private Investigations
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 - not a public inquiry

Checking out the reports - digging up the dirt
You get to meet all sorts in this line of work
Treachery and treason - there's no excuse for it
When I find the reason I just can't get used to it

So 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 windows and a pain behind the eyes

Scarred for life - no compensation
Private investigations
