A public face... A private eye... A patent shoe... A wider
A deeper sigh... A leaking
A shrunken head... An open file...
A broken jaw... An alibi...
A jumped up fee... A ceiling fan...

Hear no evil. See no evil. Speak no evil.
Hear no evil. See no evil. Speak no evil.

A heinous crime. It wasn't meant to be. A body blow. On the table waiting.
A paperweight.
Crashing through the cigar smoke. The answer no. Now I can't remember. Hat
Check girl.
Found necking with a Siamese twin. Dabs on glass. She should have burned
The gloves she lost. An alien key. Turning. Walls have ears.

A vital clue... A public
A private eye... Hear no evil.
See no evil.
Speak no evil. Hear no evil.
See no evil.
Speak no evil.
