  • 1. 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 – it’s not a public inquiry

    I go checking out the reports – 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 whiskey and a new set of lies
    blinds on the window and a pain behind the eyes

    Scarred for life – no compensation
    private investigations

    Me and my mate we think you're great
    Some we like and some we hate
    I know him I've seen him on the adverts
    Got any badges posters stickers or t-shirts
    You were bloody great last time you come
    I thought me 'ead was stuck in the bass drum
    Bloody loud, me bloody head hurts
    Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts
    So how'd you get a start in show biz
    My mate's as good on the drums as he is
    My mate thinks I'm bloody cracked
    Please sign my jacket on the back
    All them badges made of plastic
    I think they're great, just fantastic
    I''m unemployed, he's still at school
    He gets annoyed 'cause I'm such a fool
    You don't half sweat a lot up there
    Have you got showers in here'
    You''re bloody great, my bloody head hurts
    Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts
    Yeah, me and my mate like ac-dc
    Hot & sweaty, loud & greasy
    My mom says we're a pair of perverts
    Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts
    C'mon mister
    We hitch-hiked here in pouring rain
    Now we've missed the frigging train.
    Hey! can I have one of them lagers'
    Thanks very much, mate. can 'e have one'
    A-one, a-two, a-one two three four...
