We Are Detective

Thompson Twins

Somebody's watching me

and now i'm nervous and i shouldn't be

Somebody's got their eye on me

perhaps i should invite him up for tea?

We saw him smoking by the newspaper stand

there's something odd about his gloved left hand

Saw him again inside the old cafe

he makes us tense we wish he'd go away


We are detective

we are select

We are detective

come to collect

Somebody's after me

he left his footprints by the garden tree

Last night when i got home

i got the feeling i was not alone!

Someone is on our tail

we think they're opening up our morning mail

And now each time the telephone rings

we think of frightening things


We dress up in disguise

to get away from all those prying eyes

Our friends all think we're mad

but we know better cos the spy is bad
