MUFFIN: Ah! Hello, Duckie.

SERGEANT DUCKIE: Hello, sir. How are you?

MUFFIN: I'm fine thanks. How are you?

DUCKIE: Well, sir, I'm a little bit moody today, sir.

MUFFIN: Why's that, Duckie?

(music)

DUCKIE: Because...
I'm a little bit sad and lonely.
Now my baby's gone away.
I'm feeling kinda blue.
I don't know just what to do.
I feel a little sad today.

CHORUS OF POLICE CONSTABLES: He's a little bit sad and lonely.
Now his baby's gone away.
He's feeling kinda blue.
(He don't know) just what to do.
He's not feeling so good today.

DUCKIE: Wheeeeen I smile,
The sun comes flooding in.

CHORUS: Da da da da da da da da.

DUCKIE: Wheeeeen I'm sad,
It goes behind the clouds again.

DUCKIE and CHORUS: I'm (He's) a little bit sad and lonely.
Well (Now) my (his) baby's gone away.
I'm (He's) feeling kinda--
Etcetera; etcetera.

And now, here is Chief Inspector Jean-Paul Zatapathique with the winning song once again.

(The accompaniment starts as the singers hum the intro. Cut to flashy Eurovision set. Zatapathique steps onto podium.)

VOICE OVER: (hushed tone) And so, Inspector Zatapathique, the forensic expert from the Monaco Murder Squad sings his song 'Bing Tiddle Tiddle Bong'.
