The Lyrics

"John Watson: There are lives at stake, Sherlock!— Just, just so I know, do you care about that at all? Sherlock Holmes: Will caring about them help save them? John: Nope! Sherlock: Then I’ll continue not to make that mistake."
Intro: Hmmm…

Verse 1: Some people say that I’m loony
Some people say that I’m deranged
All people say that I’m sour, yeah
But they still call when afoot’s the game
Some people think that this criminal thing
Provides one with gifts
But I dare to retort
Yes, that will afford
A spell in a correctional

Chorus: Some people make the calls
But they don’t see nothing at all
Cuz they’re all fools, Watson
No they don’t see clues, Watson
Some people think I’m a cheat
But it’s just so element’ry
At every scene there’s something
If you find those clues

Verse 2: All of those clues start amounting
Comprises all that’s been done (you know)
I will concede, all these assu-u-umptions
Is mostly due to just sheer observations
Hand me a hint on a silver platter
And what fun would it be?
With no game to play
With no one who truly ri-vals me

Chorus: Some people think they’re smart
But I don’t, I’m sure of it all
You know it’s true, Watson
However uncouth, Watson
Those people are cads and thieves
They don’t deserve to be free
Cuz everything means something
It may be a clue, clue clue!

Chorus: Some people try my job
But they don’t get near me at all
Cuz it ain’t smooth, Watson
Thank God I have you, Watson
Some villains like pageantry
Those one’s like Moriarty
But even when there’s nothing
I still have got you… yeah…

Outro: I think I fin’lly got a clue, Watson
Oh… Ooo…
There’s nothing in this whole wide world
That means a thing
If I ain’t got you with me, Watson…

I think even Professor Moriarty would approve- 555 hints!

And so with that, another mystery is solved.

(Artistry) I think the only Sherlock-related thing I've seen is The Great Mouse Detective, but I still had a ball here. You really captured Sherlock's from-what-I've-read uncaring-but-dedicated nature, and I liked the (possibly unintentional) nod to the incessant Sherlock/Watson slash in the last chorus (that was missing from the video version). 555 clues!

Overall not bad, I'm not really up to date with the whole Sherlock thing (my main exposure to him is his Epic Rap Battle against Batman haha). I love the original song though, so bonus points there.
