Now, this is a story all about how My life got flipped-turned upside down And I liked to take a minute Just sit there son I'll tell you how I became the menacing Joker of Gotham.
Well no idea where I was born or raised An Asylum was where I spent most of my days Spazzin' Out, Schitzin, Laughin' all cool And all digging my way out with a stolen tool When a couple of guards caught me out of my bed I stabbed them in the face and now they're kinda dead Broke out of Arkham and Gotham's where I went, They found nothing in my pockets except knives and lint,
I just wanna be the guy who's fun and feared, And if I may say, I really dig the beard Everyone points and call me delirious, But I just laugh and ask, "Why so serious?"
Well I broke out some cell-mates, and set them free And told them they were all just freaks like me If they wanna destroy Gotham, there's just one plan, It's obvious the only way is: kill the batman
I destroyed half of Gotham by two or three, And I yelled to the batman, "Come on, hit me" Looked at Gotham, as it all laid in waste, Come on, batman, Lets put a smile on that face.
