Mr. Arthur left with Elsie right after the ball
Mr. Arthur left with Elsie right after the ball
But only Mr. Edmonton knew about the safe in the wall

The nail from Mr. Gladglum's show was found by the stair
The nail from Mr. Gladglum's show was found by the stair the button from his overcoat Was found beside the drawing room chair

Late last night at roughy a quarter til three
Someone committed the crime of the century

Mr Bacon was singing "Don't Forget Your Hat, Justine"
Mr Bacon was singing "Don't Forget Your Hat, Justine"
To a girl who was found to be no more than 17

Mr Nicklby's knife was found inside a sycamore tree
Mr Nicklby's knife was found inside a sycamore tree
But he had just vanished on a boat bound across the sea

There were 12 sets of fingerprints identified at the scene
And the newspapers said it was the crime of the century

Mr Morton was overheard talking to Miss Applegate
Mr Morton was overheard talking to Miss Applegate
Who was mysteriously absent from the toast at a half past eight

Miss Blue had said "if I should happen to die today
Miss Blue had said "if I should happen to die today
One day you'll wish that I was haunting you just so you could see my face!"

So I don't understand, girl, why are you looking at me
Like I just committed the crime of the century?
Ooooh
Crime of the century
Ooooh
Crime of the century
