The Lyrics

This is a parody about a super-duper smart detective dude!
Criminal I'm seeking
But I'm lacking clues and hints
And that sucks, lying's not what I had i-in mind
But I think I've figured
Out: 'twas you that di-id it
I've caught you red-handed, tha-at's right
The way you sit there calmly a-and snark
Acting innocent as if you-ou were
But you're not, admit it
Guilty as a-all get out
You tipped your hand with the way you smirk

Cause you're too nonchala-ant
Just too calm, seemingly
And so I am suspecting you
Of this criminal deed
And I heard you whistli-ing
That's proof and I'll tell you why-y
People whistle these days, dude
To cover for crimes

It may seem like a jump
Or a huge leap, ra-ather
But this guilt conclusion I'm come to today
Is based on hard fa-acts and real solid nu-umbers
Of how often I've seen films go this way

The one who's nonchala-ant
Did the malicious deed
Because they think we'll misconstrue
Calmness for purity
Those that start panicki-ing
Are not guilty ev'ry ti-ime
But the ones who are like you?
They do all the crimes

And those who act like
Obvious bad guys
Are red herrings, a fact for su-u-ure
But your alibi
Are known to be lies
Because you're too calm a-and demure

I know you're lying
Can't write off my-y way
Of deducing things, you've much to learn
I don't know your mo-otive
Or how you got away, but
I don't need that, this court is adjourned

You were too nonchala-ant
And proved you are guilty
This ain't no court of kangaroos
You're claiming it is, please
Your tune's changed to pleadi-ing
That you're innocent, yeah ri-ight
I'm not falling for that, dude
Kiss your ass goo-oodbye

You were far too nonchalant
So I proved your guilt wi-ith ease
I don't care you're pointing at that dude
Covered in red paint, plea-ease
I'll won't be believi-ing
That it's really blood, yeah ri-ight
I think I've shown enough proof
Guilt can't be denied
Your words are all
Lies, lies
'Fraid it's so-o

HAH! Gotcha! It was really about a super-duper stupid detective dude!
