The Lyrics

Winding your way down on Baker Street
Deerstalker hat and brown shoes on your feet
You know there's not much time
To solve this latest crime
So you gotta find all the clues

You take a fingerprint and look around
You hear the scary barking of the Bask'villes' Hound
Then meet a man close by
With a twinkle in his eye
And he claims he knows everything

But you know that way deep down, he's lying
This much you can tell, even without trying
'Cause his story
Self-contradicts

So you tell the constables 'bout him
You'd rather try to solve the case without him
But you're in a
You're in a fix

Way down in Soho there's a club you find
They serve cherry cola but they call it wine
And then she rocks your world
A pretty, pretty girl
And you think she might know something

She tells you she knows the crook, you see
And so you go back with her to 221B
And the gives you all the clues
And you pay her what she's due
'Cause she helped you to solve the case

But you still know there's something strange about her
You find it hard to really figure out her
'Cause strangely, she
Talks like a guy

You've solved the case, so you should be happy
But you're disappointed, and not happy
Because of the
Unpleasant surprise
Well, at least Sherlock was able to correctly guess her name. Can you?

I think using fingerprints to solve crimes debuted a few years after Holmes' heyday, but if you wanted us to guess the "girl"'s name, I think you telegraphed the punch too much. Maybe she wanted Holmes to find the guy who shot her boyfriend Tony.

Intriguing parody, but I'm trying to solve the mystery of why Mr. Holmes is wearing his deerstalker hat on his feet.
