The Lyrics

Part of my "Something to Believe In" self-challenge. I'm sure you've seen at least one comedy film or show where someone has to BS an identity out of objects they can see, right? I hope so, otherwise this premise might sound a little bit silly.
Now I-I-I need an alibi
The situation's dire, afraid that I must lie

Oh god, I did somethin' wrong, wasn't quite my smartest call
Don't want to head off to jail, won't be much fun at all
I've got to create a load of bollocks that's tight as balls
One problem with that, of course: got no prepared statement, must stall, hah
This is gettin' heavy, don't think that I can get more sweaty (woo-hoo)
Need to blame somebody, yeah, who isn't real, sounds nutty, huh
Name? Oh, I don't know, just hang on and I'm good to go
Yes, I know who stole your cash, bud, hey, said I know

Yes, I-I-I need an alibi
Could swear my butt's on fire from my sweat, I must lie, hey
Makin' up names, tricky when you get put on the spot
What do I spy? What's in my line of sight? Whoa-oh-oh

Stephen Egg, there's your man, the criminal at large you want (oh-oh)
Along Jordan Bark and his cousin Harold Ball
What I spy with my eye gives you somethin' else to go on (hey)
I swear those fingerprints were misinterpreted, they are the marks of one Barry Pole (huh)
This is gettin' heavy, your left brow is high, I'm so sweaty (woo-hoo)
What do you want with me? Yeah, I told you who was guilty, huh
It was Joseph, that bloke, last name? 'Tis Slab, you're good to go
Ben Diamond, he should get locked up, go on, go

Said I-I-I need an alibi
I'm sure that Kevin Tire won't really mind the lie, hey
No way he can sue me 'cause I just made his ass up
Pullin' names right from my own line of sight, whoa-oh-oh
Lie-n-n-na-n-na-n-na-na-n-n-na, in my line of sight
Lie-n-n-na-n-na-n-na-na-n-n-na, in my line of sight
I'm not feelin' guilty for the goose chase you'll go on
Just blame my I Spy skills, great line of sight, whoa-oh-oh

Lie-n-n-na-n-na-n-na, eh-eh
Lie-n-n-na-n-na-n-na, eh-eh
Lie-n-n-na-n-na-n-na, eh-eh
Lyin' from my line of sight
Lie-n-n-na-n-na-n-na, eh-eh
Lie-n-n-na-n-na-n-na, eh-eh
Lie-n-n-na-n-na-n-na, eh-eh
Lyin' from my line of sight

Shit, I-I-I need an alibi
And I don't have the time to iron out the shite
So I'll claim the guilty ones are named for things I saw
Just blame my eyeball's awesome line of sight (love it, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
Yes, I-I-I need an alibi
It's only been 'bout five-ish minutes since the crime (oh-oh-oh)
Timin's pretty shitty to just run into a guard
So I must lie (lie) based (based) on (on) my (my) line of sight (line of sight), whoa-oh-oh
Lie-n-n-na-n-na-n-na-na-n-n-na, in my line of sight (in my line of sight)
Lie-n-n-na-n-na-n-na-na-n-n-na, in my line of sight
Obvious I'm guilty (oh)? Think you'll find it was John Door
That's all that I can find, damn line of sight, whoa-oh-oh

In the original song, the na-na's were just playing of the first two syllables of "dynamite". I intended my version to just append them after the word "line", but I realised it also sounded like they came after the word "lie", so I decided to run with it.
