[Verse 1]
G                 D     C
I'm in love with Jeremy Brett.
G                          Am       C
He was the single greatest Sherlock Holmes, yeah!
G                 D  C
In a series on the BBC
G                         Am   C
I used to watch him here on a & e.
 
[Interlude]

[Verse 2]
G                          D     C
Hair slicked back and impeccably dressed.
G                          Am     C
His only prop could be a single cigarette.
G                      D    C
He was an actor in the old regard,
G                            Am     C          D
who took the stage intent to fully become his part.
 
[Chorus]
D         C                    G
A sort of dandy in the classic tradition,
Am       C                          G
a bon vivant filled with bouts of depression.

[Verse 3]
G               D          C
Sundown sunday, Kensington High Street
G                    Am      C
in a cabretta with a floral scarf.
G                            D        C
London's yours, man! You got Macbeth tonight.
G                            Am    C
A scull in your hands in the fire light.
 
[Chorus]
D           C                           G
Tobacco and champagne and you're feelin alright!
Am           C               G
A cab across town and a kiss goodnight.

[Verse 4]
G                            D                 C
He played a Holmes that was deep and dark with faults -
G                  Am            C
richly complex and brilliantly detailed.
G                         D         C
A "Damaged penguin" with genious intuition,
G                    Am        C
animated spider with singular vision,
 
[Chorus]
D                     C         G
whose only need was a case to consume him
Am                           C       G
to stave his addiction to a certain solution.
 
G D C G
G Am C G
 
[Verse 5]
G               D      C
David Burke and Edward Hardwicke,
G                         Am          C
played it perfect as his friend and companion.
G               D       C
A kind-hearted, affable Watson.
G                 Am      C
Everyready with a loyal hand in
 
[Chorus]
D             C             G
any case that Holmes would command him.
Am             C            G
I always felt Holmes couldn't do without him.

[Verse 6]
G                       D C
Brett's wife died back '85,
G                       Am       C
all the grief triggered manic depression.
G                                D         C
See it in his face, man - he was heavily grieving.
G                                D      C     G
His heart grew thin and finally stopped beating.
 
[Chorus]
D          C              G
Oh, Jeremy Brett! I never knew you.
Am          C                          G
Oh, Jeremy, Darling! I dedicate this song to you!
