The Lyrics

Hostess looks ghostly poor,
Face down upon the floor
An office girl, stationery, is she
Looks like a case for Sherlock..
Poisoned, all at tea..

Chaueffeur's quite pale, unreal
Slumps forward at the wheel,
And Maude the maid with eyes open, can't see
Each outside entrance was locked,
Poisoned, all at tea..

Dial up Scotland Yard, send detective, please
To solve these hard...strange mysteries
Want Sherlock Holmes, not Clouseau
(You know !)

Seamstress does not seam right,
And nanny's diaper white,
The gard'ner, with hose, is froze quite stiff-ly
Stoned host is more that just crocked,
Poisoned, all at tea

The neice does not look nice,
The iceman's cold as ice,
A neighbor drop-by..has now dropped, you see
Happened as midnight..gong clocked,
Poisoned, all at tea

The uncle spilled his cup,
A nephew's feet point up,
First cousin, face down in cuisine, is he
The cook's ticker has not tocked,
Poisoned, all at tea

Wire Interpole..while the trail is hot
Inspector solve..this fiendish plot
And find the clues to snap up,
(Wrap up!)

Now, Sherlock tells us why,
He asked us to drop by
And Doctor Watson says, "Hrmm, I agree"
The who done it,
Poisoned, all at tea

The who done it,
Poisoned, all at tea
