"I've Heard It Both Ways" is a song in "Psych: The Musical". It features the singing of Shawn Spencer, Carlton Lassiter, and Juliet O'Hara. Burton Guster and an unnamed doctor speak, but do not sing in this song.

The basis for the song is that Shawn and Lassiter are arguing over one of Shawn's psychic visions.

ProductionEdit

Showrunner Steve Franks says that it was not originally a tango; it was rewritten at the composer's insistence.

LyricsEdit

Shawn:
[spoken] Doctor, you too will soon believe
[sung] Hello, my name is Shawn Spencer
This is my partner, Lil Wayne
The evidence is underwhelming
But my intuition is insane

Lassiter:
A trained observer misses nothing
Each imperfection is a trail
It's not a question of "if" or "where"
But "when" the guilty party goes to jail
[spoken] Come with me

Shawn:
The park

Lassiter:
The bus

Shawn:
The park

Lassiter:
The bus

Shawn:
The spirits are sticklers
Just check with Gus

Gus:
Eeeehhh

Lassiter:
[speaking] There is no way I'm wrong about this.

Shawn:
I've heard it both ways
The right way and then yours
I've heard it both ways
Let's not open any sores
I've heard it right and wrong
Don't "cheech" my "chong" anymore

Lassiter:
[speaking] Spencer, give me my phone.

Shawn:
[speaking] Spiritual GPS, I can't help it.

Lassiter:
[speaking] Spencer, give my phone this in-

Doctor:
[speaking] Has he seen anyone professionally about this psychic thing?

Gus:
[speaking] Yes.
He stayed at a facility once across town.
It was for a case.

Juliet:
[speaking] He loved it.

Shawn:
[speaking] That's true, Doctor, I cannot deny it.
It was quite a treat.
Allow me to demonstrate.
To the park!
[singing] The feat's already set in motion
I feel the crime scene come alive
Drop all your preconceived emotions
And notions unless you're Nova Scotian
And feel the criminal connive
[speaking] And that...
Is how I do it.

Lassiter:
[speaking] Congratulations, Spencer!
You have finally solved the Great Peanut Shelling Caper of '09.
As we all suspected,
It was the chipmunk!

Gus:
[speaking] You are embarrassing us.

Shawn:
[speaking] Gus, don't be the very model of a modern major general.
Look at those shells.
They're cracked -
By tiny, adorable, rabies infested, plague-causing rodent teeth.
Now look over there.
Those shells are smashed.
Violently.
Almost as if...
[singing] Our victim's here and feeding vermin
Your patient drifts into his view
He scoots aside, but still uncertain
What this dark stranger's gonna do

Lassiter:
You get all this from broken peanuts

Juliet:
Perhaps we're drifting off the track

Shawn:
This is a psychic demonstration
I'm making

Juliet:
They lost a mental patient

Lassiter:
I'm not sure which of them is cracked

Juliet:
The nuts?

Lassiter:
You're cracked

Shawn:
You're nuts

Shawn and Lassiter:
I've heard it both ways
The right way and then yours
I've heard it both ways
Let's not open any sores
I've heard it right and wrong
Don't dipth my thong anymore
No, anymore
No, anymore

Shawn:
No, any-
Oooh

everyone else's names are in their full forms.
