Lyrics to Sherlock Holmes

Fog matters to you and me
But it can’t touch Sherlock Holmes
Dogs bark and he knows their breed
And knows where they went last night
Knows their masters, too
Oh baby, hold me tight

Just pretend I’m Sherlock Holmes
Spend the night with Sherlock Holmes
Hold me tight like Sherlock Holmes

Stay, don’t give me that same old act
I can call in Sherlock Holmes
He’ll want your biography
And pictures of you in lace
And satin looking great
Oh baby, hold me tight

Spend the night with Sherlock Holmes
Hold me tight like Sherlock Holmes
Just pretend I’m Sherlock Holmes

Do you want to have fun?
Do you want a good time?
Do you want me to laugh?
Do you want me to cry?

Do you want me to dance?
Do you want me to sing?
Do you want me to joke?
Should I be more like him?

I can dance like Sherlock Holmes
I can sing like Sherlock Holmes
But can’t be Sherlock Holmes

Songwriters: MAEL, RONALD D / MAEL, RUSSELL CRAIG
