Mark Knopfler - Private Investigations

Dire Straits


(Mark Knopfler)

It's a mystery to me - the game commences

For the usual fee - plus expenses

Confidential information - it's in a diary

This is my investigation - it's not a public inquiry

I go checking out the reports - digging up the dirt

You get to meet all sorts in this line of work

Treachery and treason - there's always an excuse for it

And when I find the reason I still can't get used to it

And what have you got at the end of the day?

What have you got to take away?

A bottle of whisky and a new set of lies

Blinds on the window and a pain behind the eyes

Scarred for life - no compensation

Private investigations
