From the book The Aliens Have Landed at Our School!
My dad's a secret agent.
He's an undercover spy.
He's the world's best detective.
He's the perfect private eye.
He's a Pinkerton, a gumshoe,
He's a snoop and he's a sleuth.
He's unrivaled at detecting
and uncovering the truth.
He's got eyesight like an eagle.
He's got hearing like a bat.
He can out-smell any bloodhound.
He's as stealthy as a cat.
He can locate nearly anything
with elementary ease.
But no matter how he looks and looks
my dad can't find his keys!
