The Fleeting Phantom Figure in the Garden

From "Whodunit"
Those footsteps, I hear them
They’re close now, we’re near them
Who made them?
I’m willing to bet it’s that villain!
We’ll chase him, we’ll trail him, pursue him, and tail him
He’s probably a jewel thief, so probably, they’ll jail him
That fleeting phantom figure in the garden
That villain creeping secretly along
He’s making phantom footsteps in the garden
We’ll catch him by the time we end this song
This garden is foggy and gloomy and soggy
The perfect location for a villain to escape in
He thinks he’ll evade me, he thinks he’s outplayed me
He’s sneaky and stealthy, but not mentally healthy
My instinct is brilliant, I’m quick and resilient
The culprit will find he’s no match for my super-brainy,
great detective, mystery solving mind!
That fleeting phantom figure in the garden
He thinks he can escape me, but I’m fast
Oh, bad guy making footsteps in the garden...
The great detective collars you at last!
