The Lyrics

This is the first part of the R. Kelly parody "The Mystery of Mamo", which is basically a recap of the same-name Japanese animation motion picture. Some lines were from the Streamline dub, while some came from the Geneon dub. If you haven't seen "The Mystery of Mamo", then do so.
Seven o'clock in the evening, and I've gone to Transylvania
I'm looking real stupid, like it's driving me insane, now
And then Zenigata comes in and opens the coffin
Blew up the corpse inside, and boy, was he not laughing

"Why, Detective Zenigata, long time, no see"
Then he looked up and was so damn surprised to see me
"Wait a second, that stiff in the coffin..." I could tell that he wasn't laughing
"That was you, right?" he said, knowing damn well I wasn't dead

Here I am, I just said now, "So they say.
I'm a little confused myself," and I knew the sitch wasn't okay
"They guaranteed you were deader than a doornail," Old Man said
"There wasn't a shadow of a doubt," but he knew I wasn't dead
I said, "It's news to me; frankly, I've never felt better"
"Hold still, and we can fix that," Old Man said, red hotter

Then he swung at me a piece of wood so quick that
I ran quickly out, and then I'm ready to shout
"Hate to cut this short here, but it's time I got out of here"
And then, and then, and then Zenigata shouted
"You little..." then he pulled out his Colt 45
Shot three times, but I made it out alive

That's when he went to Egypt to search for me and Jigen
Chief of police looked at him and thought that he was kiddin'
Old Man said, "Trust my sixth sense" and reacted to a sounder
I'm tellin' you now, Old Man's so good that he deserves an Oscar

Jigen and I came close to getting caught redhanded
I'm in the pyramid, like, one false move and we're dead
You're not going to believe it, but things get deeper as the story goes on
Next thing you know, I find the Philosopher's Stone
I tried my best to keep the setup off vibrate
But from the way it fell, I could tell it was too late
Old Man then said "There's a mystery going on, and I'm gonna solve it"
And I'm like, "God please, don't let Old Man seal the pyramid"

He walks in the chamber and looks behind the door
Chief says, "Detective, you were right"; Pops says, "Say no more"
He traps me and Jigen while I'm driving the cycle
Jigen almost lost his hat; right now, I'm sweating like hell
There was Goemon, cutting up a tire
He said, "We must hurry"; fuzz was moving like fire
Now we're on our way out, with no shadow of doubt
Zenigata shouts out, "This isn't over yet, you clout!"
This first part covered Lupin III's escape from Transylvania and his theft of the Philosopher's Stone from a Pharaoh's tomb in Egypt. Coming up next on "The Mystery of Mamo", Fujiko Mine collects the Philosopher's Stone from Lupin, who subsequently has to escape from some seedy guys in France who are after him for the stone.

Sorry man but the pacing is so off, if you did have said it was from an R. Kelly tune I probubly wouldn't have known
