   It's a mystery to me - the game commences 
   For the usual fee - plus expenses 
G/B                         F/A 
   Confidential information - it's in a diary 
B7/A                        Em/G 
   This is my investigation - it's not a public inquiry 
Gdim    /  Am6/F# 
Em7                              Bm/D 
   I go checking out the reports - digging up the dirt 
   You get to meet in all sorts - in this line of work

   Treachery and treason - there's always an excuse for it

   What have you got - to take away? 
G                   C   D  
   A bottle of whisky - and a new set of lies 
C                              B 
   Blinds on the windows and a pain behind the eyes
