Private Investigations Lyrics

It's a mystery to me - the game commences
for the usual fee - plus expenses
confidential information - it's in the 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...

    This song I read in the 80's that while on tour mark suspected his lady was cheating on him..
    So he did his own "PRIVATE INVESTERGATION".
    His pain is in his guitar work.
    underrated song I'm afraid..
    as is Dire Straits...
