Interrogation Song Lyrics from Muppets Most Wanted


After settling their “who has the bigger badge” debate, Jean and Sam Eagle have a job to do. Figure out who’s been committing crimes…



Kermit, let’s begin

Describe the day you played Berlin


Constantine: We rehearsed and then we walked about

We ate bratwurst and sauerkraut


Jean: That night at ten o’ three

Were you inside the portrait gallery?


Constantine: From ten o’clock to ten o’ four

Was when we did the show encore


Sam: Hmm, Frog we’ve got our doubts

Can you confirm your whereabouts?


Constantine: My alibi is watertight

The audience saw me sing all night


Jean: Monsieur we know you did the crime


Constantine: I was on stage that whole time

Ask who sang “Rainbow Connection”


Sam and Jean: Thank you Kermit, no more questions



Hello, I think it’s time for good cop, romantic cop


Jean: Miss Piggy, you could end up locked inside

Now’s your chance to save your hide


Miss Piggy: Gentlemen, I did not know

It’s a crime to steal the show


Sam: Tell us how the art was taken


Jean: If you want to save your bacon


Miss Piggy: I haven’t seen your missing art

All I’ve stolen is audience hearts


Sam: We can give you a plea deal


Jean: All you have to do is squeal


Miss Piggy: I’m not a thief, I don’t know how

All I’ve ever taken is a bow


Jean: We’ll catch the swine that did this job


Miss Piggy: Give up the pig puns, creep

Go jump in a lake, that’s my suggestion


Sam and Jean: Thank you Piggy, no more questions


Jean: I think she likes me


Sam: I don’t think your puns are helping the investigation


Jean: You know, I think they did it

Sam: No they didn’t

Jean: Yes they did, and we can pin it

Sam: If they did, how did they do it?

Jean: If they didn’t, how did they didn’t?

Sam: If they didn’t then it’s easy, ’cause they simply didn’t do it

Jean: If they did it, then I knew it, but we’ve nothing that can prove it


Jean: Oh, excuse me

Sam: Uh


Jean: Bring in the purple guy with the shnozz



Do you remember what you did

On the night you played Madrid?


Gonzo: I was hit by a raging bull

And rushed off stage to the hospital


Jean: Gonzo, what do you know

About the sculpture theft at Madrid’s Prado?


Gonzo: I never saw the stolen busts

I spent the night in bed concussed


Sam: The truth Gonzo, the clock is tickin’


Gonzo: If you don’t believe me, ask the chicken

Camilla was there, she’ll co-operate


Jean: Madam, are you willing to corroborate?


Camilla: Bawk bawk begawk, begawk gawk gawk


Sam: Will someone get this chicken out of here


Gonzo: Calm down Camilla, it’s a routine inspection


Sam and Jean: Thank you Gonzo, no more questions



Let’s go from the start

What do you know about the stolen art?


Lew Zealand: I didn’t know there was a plan


Floyd: Your accusation is far out man


Bunsen: The chances of us committing a crime

Are less than .009


Swedish Chef: Shern de shern de herf

Sher de chicky en de farney hug

Jean: To help with our investigation

Can you do a full translation?


Translator: What the chef just said to you
Was “Schnoop do schnnop do schnook”

It’s not Swedish


Animal: Aaaarghh!!!


Penguins: Wank wank wank


Fozzie: I can do an Elvis impression?


Sam and Jean: Thank you Muppets,  no more questions!


Jean: They didn’t

Sam: No, they didn’t

Jean: There’s no way they did the crime

Sam: They couldn’t they’re too stupid

Jean: They’re not criminal masterminds

Sam: We do not know who did it, but we know who didn’t do it

Sam and Jean: So we know who didn’t do it yes we know who didn’t do it


Jean: They’re incapable of being culpable!


These guys aren’t incapable of being culpable. In fact, this song was entirely their doing:
