Do you ever make up your own words to songs? How about while you’re Sleuthing? Now’s your chance to show off your song writing talent. The rules:

All songs must be a parody of a Beatle song. They must also be in keeping with our Noir theme. The original title must be at the top so judges will know which tune to “sing by.” You can have your own title too just put the original in “( )”

The contest ends at the last server moment of the leap day, February 29. So March is too late.
Judges will be Anikka, Lady Jas, and myself.

Prizes are : 1st place - an AVH reward plus 100K sleuth dollars
2nd place- Choice of an AVH reward or 100k sleuth dollars.

Entry Example:

(Help)
Help, you know I need somebody,
Help, I just saw a body,
Help, you know I need a Sleuth,
Heeelllp!

When I was going out, only yesterday,
I nearly fell over a body propped up in my way,
There was blood spilt all over the floor,
I screamed and ran back, slamming shut my door.

Help me if you can I feel afraid,
And I don't want to go to my grave,
Help, I think I may be next,
Wont you please, please help me?

These have been great, and I couldn't let my double be in teh fun by himself. So here is my sleutherized version of "We All Live in A Yellow Submarine" I hope you all enjoy!

In a place where some hang out
Lives a man who clears your name
And we know its best to pay
In the back of Taj Masion

Now we've all went to see him there
after false accusations
and we found him by himself
In the back of Taj Masion

Shady is the best in the back of Taj Masion,
the back of Taj Masion, the back of Taj Masion,
Shady is the best in the back of Taj Masion,
the back of Taj Masion, the back of Taj Masion.

Now our falses are all cleared
We hope to never see no more
Or else we'll hear someone say

(Trumpets Play)

Shady is the best in the back of Taj Masion,
the back of Taj Masion, the back of Taj Masion,
Shady is the best in the back of Taj Masion,
the back of Taj Masion, the back of Taj Masion.

(Pay right away, young detective, pay right away!
Pay right over here now!
Shady's here! Shady's here!
Yes,yes, right here!
Money! Money!)

As we all began to learn
Every one of us, has had to pay.
Made a false accusation
and went to the back of Taj Masion

Shady is the best in the back of Taj Masion,
the back of Taj Masion, the back of Taj Masion,
Shady is the best in the back of Taj Masion,
the back of Taj Masion, the back of Taj Masion.

(It's been a hard day's night)

It's been a hard day's night,
And I've been working like a dog,
It's been a hard day's night,
all day chasing Villains abroad,
But when I get close to them,
I find the things that they do,
Will make me feel alright.

You know I work all day,
To get the satisfaction of biting them,
And it's worth it just to hear them pray,
As the oblivion approaches them,
So why on earth should I moan,
'Cos when I get them alone,
I know I feel okay.

When I arrest them ev'rything seems to be right,
When I cuff them feeling I am holding them
Tight, tight, yeh.

It's been a hard day's night,

Will make me feel alright.

You know I work all day,

This contest is so much fun my third detective just had to play. Thanks to Handsome Calvin for the idea. Heres my version of "All The Lonely People"

*clears throat*

"All The Clammed Up People"

I questioned all the clammed up people
I questioned all the clammed up people

Barbara Menkveld
Comes to my office to hire me to solve a crime
Make them do time
I start the case,
Searching the crime scene I find two notes and a hair.
Who was all there?
All the clammed up people, how can I make them talk?
All the clammed up people, Will I have to get tough?

Septimus Tibby,
I asked him where he was a the time of the death
Told me in a breath
Next I asked if he knew someone who had a cause
Then he just paused
All the clammed up people, how can I make them talk?
All the clammed up people, Will I have to get tough?

Barbara Menkveld
Left a note at the scene of the crime with no alibi
She did the crime
Septimus Tibby,
He clammed up so I was left with the townies on this big chase.
I quit the case.
All the clammed up people, how can I make them talk?
All the clammed up people, Will I have to get tough?

I have an entry to add. Not a song writer at heart so I hope it tracks okay. Can I just add that I'm entering for fun and not to win so on the offchance the judges takes leave of their senses and passes over all the great enteries in favour of mine just a little "well done" mention will be fine. So without further ado I give you:

Octopus's Garden

I’d like to be, down by the sea
Drinking a Piña Colada in the shade,
But here I am, on this chain gang,
Breaking up boulders all day long for the state.

I had these plans to go and see
The Octopus's Garden while free.
A little bar, down by the sea
In Puerto Rico, the place I long to be.

A brutal murder so they claimed,
The killer must have been totally insane,
The Sleuth went and pinned it on me
Now I’m doing life and I’ll never be free.

Now I sing out loud my song,
As I smash up rocks all day long,
Of how much I do long to be
At the Octopus’s Garden by the sea.

Do I look insane to you?
Able to shoot a man through and through?
(To shoot a man through and through?)
I tell you this with all certainty
It was someone else and not me.
(Certainly not me)

Damn that Sleuth who got it all so wrong,
Leaving me stuck here to sing this song.
I want to be, down by the sea
At the Octopus’s Garden you see,
So here my plea and please just set me free
To drink Piña Colada in the shade.

Sung to the tune of "Have a little help from my friends".


What do you do when your face is maroon?
When you’ve clammed up your last townie
Send brassieres and I’ll give you my thong
But tonight there’s no chance of whoopee

I’ll have another sleuth weekend
Just have another sleuth weekend
Get by with another sleuth weekend

What do you do when your love wants to play?
(But you still want the ironing done)
Stand your ground. Take their computer away.
(Or tell them you’ll get your gun)

And we’ll comply with what you intend
We don’t want our own lives to end
We’re going to try to make amends…
But this murder is only pretend

Have they found another body?
But this time it could be your own
Could it be you’re now a zombie?
But you won’t leave the game alone

I’ll have another sleuth weekend
Just have another sleuth weekend
Get by with another sleuth weekend

What will she do when you forget her birthday?
(She’ll never forgive you this terrible slight)
It’s only a game. Get sleuth off the brain
(If you still want a family life)

I’ll have another sleuth weekend
Just have another sleuth weekend
Get by with another sleuth weekend

So did they find your buried body?
Have they accused your loving wife.
Could it be you lost your artery
When she killed you with a knife

A knife, A knife.
