This is an excerpt of a relatively rare song done in 1979 by the Boston area group Lou Miami [1956-1995] and the Kozmetix. It is rare because it was never released for sale. As a demo tape it was broadcast on radio stations in the Boston area where I recorded it off the air except for the first 35 seconds or so. I hope someone will upload the complete song. Here are the lyrics as best as I can make out:

When ya gonna let me tell you all about it.
When ya gonna let me tell you all about it.
When ya gonna let me tell you all about it.

It's a cruel world. It's a fool world.
It's a cruel world. It's a fool world.
Boy detective, boy detective, boy detective, boy.

When ya gonna see that love is a hijinks.
When ya gonna see that it's too many strong drinks.
When ya gonna see that it starts with an eye blink.
When ya gonna see just how much that love stinks.

It's about time. It's a scout time.
It's about time. It's a scout time.
Boy detective, boy detective, boy detective, boy.

Hey guys! [What?]
Ya gotta spy [Huh? Heh?]
On the girl ya love. [Oh? Really?]
Boy detective, boy detective, boy detective, boy.

Now ya gotta see that ya gotta spy.
Ya gotta get past those little girl eyes.
Ya don't wanna be just a stupid guy.
When a run-around girl is makin' ya cry.

Don't go shove her. Go undercover.
Don't go shove her. Go undercover.
Boy detective, boy detective, boy detective, boy.

Know how ya know how love gets defective.
And nobody wants to be on the rejective.
One of the pair will always get ejected.
Before you make your interests ought to be protected.

Now ya see why. Be a girl spy.
Now ya see why. Be a girl spy.
Boy detective, boy detective, boy detective, boy.
