The Lyrics

"Chester Gould-Fashioned Love Song"

Chester Gould’s ration of wrong: Daily comics mayhem - Oh!
Crimes abound, abuse of law is all around,
and nothing hints a let-up, so …
he calls Dick Tracy once more
to see slammered the wrong’uns. Dick alone
can civic order restore
and then when, at last, it’s done …

Chester Gould-fashioned love song
Tracy sings thru’ his wrist radio
Chester Gould-fashioned love song
To his true love -- Tess Trueheart, you know.

From fighting Nazi foe to learning what Moon people know,
Dick meets the needs.
Don’t underrate him …
where the evil-doers work this valiant evil-shooer speeds.
More fearless than Fosdick,
well-schooled in forensics, you can bet your shield
when Tracy takes on a case the perp
will be in cooler sealed.

(Then)
Chester Gould-fashioned love song
Tracy sings thru’ his wrist radio
Chester Gould-fashioned love song
To his true love -- Tess Trueheart, you know.

(fading)

Chester Gould-fashioned love song
Tracy croons to Tess “Voh-dee-oh-doh …”
Chester Gould-fashioned love song
Just part of why Tess Trueheart loves him so.

© Stan Hall ... 75 years and change of Dick T's adventures really deserve detailed chronicling in a far longer song, but I couldn't resisit the titular pun (which, come to think of it, may not be evident to readers who've traveled with Tracy only since Boxing Day of 1977). :-)
