Opening theme song lyrics

There they go and on the double!
To the spot where there is trouble!
Clue Club!

Clue Club is on the scene!
You better believe boy!

Dottie does her thing computin'.
Checking clues and troubleshootin.

Clue Club!

Clue Club, it's routine!

You go in first Wimper!

One trap door, and they go spilling face-to-face another villain.

Clue Club!

Clue Club, just in time!
We'll be safe in here Wimp!

No fun runnin' from a mummy, even though he is a dummy!

Clue Club!

Clue Club solves the crime!
I knew it all the time!

Clue Club!
