Detective Tracy is the dragon lady's man
Detective Tracy plays catch you if I can
He knows when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake
He knows when you're playing, when you're playing with yourself

Detective Tracy's got the big red book
Detective Tracy only needs 10 rules
He thinks he is better but he sleeps as late as me
He is always praying, always praying with himself

Jesus Christ, Holy Ghost,
God save all your souls from this unholy coax

Detective Tracy's checking all the doors
Detective Tracy, he is a holy war

He is always checking, checking on the given law
Someday I hope to catch him, catch him praying to himself

Jesus Christ, Holy Ghost
I will testify, there is truth in fire.
