watching the detectives
nice girls not one with a defect 
cellophane shrink-wrapped so correct 
red dogs under illegal legs 
she looks so good that he gets down and begs 
she is watching the detectives, oh he's so cute 
she is watching the detectives 
when they shoot shoot shoot shoot 
they beat him up until the teardrops start 
but he can't be wounded cuz he's got no heart 

long shot of that jumping sign 
visible shivers running down my spine 
cut the baby taking off her clothes 
close-up of the sign that says "we never close" 
you snatch a tune, you match a cigarette 
she pulls the eyes out with a face like a magnet 
i don't know how much more of this i can take 
she's filing her finger nails 
while they're dragging the lake 
she is watching the detectives oh he's so cute 
she is watching the detectives 
oh they shoot shoot shoot shoot 
they beat him up until the teardrops start 
but he can't be wounded 
cuz he's got no heart 

now you think you're  alone until you realise 
you're in it 
now fear is here to stay love is here for a visit 
they call it instant justice when it's past 
the legal limit 
someone's scratching at the window 
i wonder who is it? 
the detectives come to check if you belong to 
the parents 
who are ready to hear the worst about their 
daughter's disappearance 
though it nearly took a miracle to get you to stay 
it only took my little fingers to blow you away 

just like watching the detectives don't get cute 
it's just like watching the detectives 
i get so angry when the teardrops start 
but he can't be wounded cuz he's got no heart 
watching the detectives 
it's just like watching the detectives 
watching the detectives watching the detectives
