Who is Nancy Drew?

According to me, everyone who plays a Nancy Drew game can claim to be "Nancy Drew", since they take on her character role. Therefore, anybody can suddenly burst into this song that we posted a while back:

Due to several requests, we are posting the lyrics and chords! Perhaps this is your opportunity to perform for a YouTube video, yes? We'd love to see how many "Nancy Drew"s will sing this song!



Guitar Chords:
Capoed on 5: Am, E, F, G
With no capo: Em, B, C, D

"I'm Nancy Drew" song lyrics:

Verse 1
In my line of work it’s fun and games
when new mysteries come my way.
When friends need help, they call me in
So I can track down their dark villain.
At times the case usually seeks me out,
Trouble comes, what’s that about?
These things have logical explanations…
Let’s find them out cause I want my vacation! 

Chorus
Add this to my resume,
I’m Nancy Drew, I hope you’ve heard of me.
I solve the case every time;
I find the treasure and stop all crime.
Don’t try to hide, ‘cause it won’t work.
I’m comin’ for ya, you dirty crook! 

Verse 2
I’ve rescued friends, learned Morse code,
Frozen to death, and blew up a boat!
I’ve danced on stage, and climbed up cliffs,
Worn a disguise, and caught some fish.
When the truth gets close, the culprits get closer,
And danger lurks around every corner.
Snooping is my specialty,
Searching through stuff that doesn’t belong to me. 

Chorus
Add this to my resume,
I’m Nancy Drew, I hope you’ve heard of me. (What?!)
I solve the case every time;
I find the treasure and stop all crime.
Don’t try to hide, ‘cause it won’t work.
I’m comin’ for ya, you dirty crook! 

Verse 3
I’ve been shocked, stung, attacked and eaten,
Suffocated, drowned, poisoned, bitten,
Hit over the head a countless number of times,
But don’t worry, I always seem to be fine...
I’ve jet packed across the old country,
Can understand French, German, Italian and Cockney,
Snuck into meetings and into locked rooms,
But no matter where I go I can’t catch Sonny Joon! 

Chorus
Add this to my resume,
I’m Nancy Drew, I hope you’ve heard of me. (What?!)
I solve the case every time;
I find the treasure and stop all crime.
Don’t try to hide, ‘cause it won’t work.
I’m comin’ for ya, you dirty crook!

Verse 4
Monsters and villains may try to stop me,
And ghosts and creatures aren’t THAT scary!
Reading my journal for clues and notes,
I’m packing my bags and grabbing my coat.
There may be tricks, troubles, and trials ahead,
But I get help from Bess, George and Ned.
Twenty-seven cases in my past I have solved,
Now I’m off to hunt the Ghost of Thornton Hall.

Chorus
Add this to my resume,
I’m Nancy Drew, I hope you’ve heard of me. (What?!)
I solve the case every time;
I find the treasure and stop all crime.
Don’t try to hide, ‘cause it won’t work.
I’m comin’ for ya, you dirty crook!

Also, we have a birthday shout-out!

When you peak around the corner you look like Nancy Drew (at the END) :O Are you she!?!?!?!?

Little Jackalope said...

@ND's #1 fan -- I don't believe the sheet music for the games exists. :( However, there are some videos on YouTube of fans who are playing the music on their own instruments!

@Lee -- I am right-handed. ;)

@Abby -- You bet!

@Norwegian Dancer -- Ukulele! Awesome!

@Anonymous -- At times, I do pretend to be Nancy Drew... XD
