Lyrics

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

Just pretend I’m Sherlock Holmes

Just pretend I’m Sherlock Holmes

Oh yeah

Oh yeah

 

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

Oh yeah

Oh yeah

 

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

Oh yeah

 

I can dance like Sherlock Holmes

I can sing like Sherlock Holmes

But can’t be Sherlock Holmes

Oh yeah

Oh yeah

Oh yeah

 

I can dance like Sherlock Holmes

I can sing like Sherlock Holmes

But can’t be Sherlock Holmes

Oh yeah

Oh yeah

Oh yeah
