Sherlock Holmes
Sparks 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
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

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

I can dance like Sherlock Holmes
I can sing like Sherlock Holmes
But can't be Sherlock Holmes

I just heard this song for the first time last week. I’m amazed at how much it sounds like an early 2010’s indie song. The openness of the sound- something rarely heard in its era. Fascinating

Anna Backman

1982 2010 came early! 😉

Dowas

Surely it's some early 2010's indie song that sounds like this original :)

Gedeon Nunes

I got to know it from the version by Mini Mansions, an early 2010's indie band XD

Poet Cummings

Fog matters to you & me...such a sad haunting song...definitely my favorite

Only the Sparks could write a song about Sherlock Holmes and make it tongue in cheek yet be a ballad as well!! Lol

Michael Makes

Loved this album when it came out... their best,I think...one thing about this song that struck me right away..that underlying synth drone is remarkably like London's air raid sirens from the blitz..works well with the reference to fog and Sherlock...by the way, I imagine young Robert Smith drinking all this in back when.. more than a little Sparks in The Cure...

Go Homely

such a lovely warm song
