Thompson Twins – We Are Detective (Album Version)


We are select
Come to collect

To get away from all those prying eyes
And I shouldn’t be
Somebody’s watching me
We are detective
We think of frightening thing
We are select
We are detective
Somebody’s got their eye on me
Come to collect

And now I’m nervous

And now each time the telephone rings
We wish he’d go away
We dress up in disguise
We are select
Perhaps I should invite him up for tea?
Somebody’s after me
We are detective
We saw him smoking by the newspaper stand
Saw him again inside the old cafe

We are detective
Our friends all think we’re mad

Last night when I got home

But we know better
’cause the spy is bad!
We are detective
Come to collect
There’s something odd about his gloved left hand
Someone is on our tail
He left his footprints by the garden tree
We are detective
We think they’re opening up our morning mail

I got the feeling I was not alone!
He makes us tense
