Sherlock Holmes, You’re My Kinda Guy

This is one of my first attempts at writing a song that actually ended with me feeling satisfied with the results. Unfortunately, when I tried to put it to music … well, let’s just say it would be best if I stuck to writing 😉

This song was inspired by non other than the infamous Sherlock Holmes. One of my friends invited me over to her house to watch this show that she thought was absolutely amazing – I felt rather skeptical, having little interest in the crime solving detective – and that I would absolutely love it once I watched it. I figured why not, I could watch it for a little bit and see what it was all about. My reaction; WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH! BBC really knows their stuff, and it shows in their modern day version of the crime solving detective who not only has the looks, but his acting is perfectly suited for the part. If you haven’t given it your attention, I would suggest looking it up as soon as possible, because it’s coming back for a third season next year and you will no want to miss it! Here’s a link to a promo trailer I found on youtube, just to give you a little taste of the show:

BBC Sherlock Holmes

Okay, enough rambling, here is the song that this brilliant television series inspired, and I do hope it will inspire your creativity as well.

Sherlock Holmes, You’re My Kinda Guy

By Emily Manns

On a dark and stormy night,

The killer makes his move.

Leaving no trace of the crime,

Whatever will we do?

 

When things get out of hand,

And the law just won’t do.

There is only one man for the job,

Just let him follow the clues!

 

Chorus:

Oh Sherlock Holmes, you’re one of a kind,

No one compares to your brilliant mind.

Oh Sherlock Holmes ….

You’re my kinda guy!

 

Nothing is ever what it seems through his eyes,

When he’s on the hunt, there are no lies.

A mere pen could be the weapon of murder,

If you need assistance, look no further.

 

No romance, no friends, no time to be social,

His personality almost seems to be artificial.

But with Dr. Watson at his side,

Hope for his humanity remains.

 

Chorus:
Oh Sherlock Holmes, you’re one of a kind,

No one compares to your brilliant mind.

Oh Sherlock Holmes …

You’re my kinda guy!

 

You may have been framed and made to look the fool,

But even at the end you didn’t lose your cool.

Come back to us to reclaim your fame,

And to rid your sorrowful John of his pain . . .

 

Chorus:

Because Sherlock Holmes, you’re one of a kind,

No one compares to your brilliant mind.

Oh Sherlock Holmes …

You’re my kinda guy!

 

Oh Sherlock Holmes, when will you realize,

There are so many puzzles yet to materialize.

Your journey has only just begun,

Oh Sherlock Holmes …

It’s elementary!
