The Lyrics

Not everyone's cut out to be a detective. This one may or may not take the cake, though...
Astounds me

Ooh-ooh-ooh, why must I be partnered with you?
Oh-oh-oh, wanna work this case alone
Cause you fail at all the things a detective must do (what we do)
Had one lead for this case and you just flushed it down the loo
Can't say I mean that phrase as just a metaphor, afraid
That crucial bit of paper now makes circles round the drain (astounds me)

Our only clue, our single lead (only clue, our single lead)
Our only clue's (yeah) no longer there (only clue's no longer there)
Only clue, our one damn lead (only clue, only clue, our one damn lead)
Our only clue's lost, I despair (only clue's lost, I despair)

Ooh-ooh-ooh, why'd you take that page to the loo?
Oh-oh-oh, I just can't leave you alone
Clearly not the best of times to have a read, you prat (utter prat)
Our only clue to catch this guy, without it, we know jack
And since it only just came in, backups were not done yet
So when you took it to the loo? Forever down the bend

Our only clue, our single lead (only clue, our single lead)
Our only clue's (yeah) been lost down there (our only clue's been lost down there)
Only clue (yeah-ee-yeah-eah-eah), our one damn lead (only clue, our one damn lead)
Our only clue's (yeah) gone, don't you care (our only clue's gone, don't you care)?

Lazy (lazy) with the (with the) stuff we (really) need (ah)
Why the (why the) hell are (hell are) you still (you still) here (ah)?
Boss's (boss's) brother's (brother's) son, I (son, I) know (ah)
Out the (out the) door, should (door, should) still be (still be) thrown (ah)

Only clue, our single lead (only clue, our single lead)
Our only clue's been flushed down there (only clue's been flushed down there)
Only clue, our one damn lead (was our one damn lead)
Our only clue's now sewer fair (our only clue's now sewer fair)

Ooh-ooh-ooh, do you recall what it said, dude?
Oh-oh-oh, jaw just hangs, didn't think so

Astounds me

Singing Detective: Where's the clue, you moron? Where's the fucking clue, shithead?
Useless Detective: It's uh... uh... it's down there somewhere, let me take another look.

Dunno why that troll would give you 1s just because they hate your work but all I did was give you 5s for that.

Im sure they just wish they were as good as the Conqueror; it has envy written all over it.
