Joker: "I'm of the mind... 2 make some mookie
Hehehe, phone book"

The phone rings, it's Vicki callin'
She wants me 2 come 2 the crib
U see, conversation's better than being lonely
So I try my best 2 ad-lib
I tell her the joke about the woman
Who asked her lover, "Why is ur organ so small?"
He replied, "I didn't know I was playin' n a cathedral"
Vicki didn't laugh at all

This is where she wants 2 b
And I am what she wants 2 see
I've never known a love so sweet
But still I keep Vicki waiting
Alright

All is well n Gotham City
The sound of terror is all U hear
Sometime a pistol take the place of her body
Sometimes her body's here
U see, when crime is ur only love
All that matters the present, the here and now
People people, whatever floats this Joker's boat
Is whatever this Joker will bang

This is where she wants 2 b
I... I am what she wants 2 see
Never known a love so sweet
But still I keep Vicki waiting
Oh yeah
Wait on, mama
Ooh

Talk of children still frightens me
Is my character enough 2 b? (Never)
1 that deserves a copy made? (Never, never)
This I 1 day I hope 2 see
Until then she's held at bay by my animal-like persistence
Or maybe she's just 2 proud 2 say
That fate brought us 2gether
And this is where she wants 2 stay

This is where she wants 2 b
I... I am what she wants 2 see
Never known a love so sweet
But still I keep Vicki waiting, oh

This is where she wants 2 b (Oh yeah)
I am what she wants 2 see (Oh yeah...)
Never known a love so sweet
But still I keep Vicki waiting

All is well n Gotham Town (This is where she wants 2 b)
I am what she wants 2 see
I've never known a love so sweet
But still I keep Vicki, still I keep Vicki...
Still I keep Vicki waiting, oh yeah
Uh-huh, uh-huh
Still I keep Vicki, still I keep Vicki waiting

This is where she wants 2 b
