Joker: "'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 C, conversation's better than being lonely
So try my best 2 ad-lib
tell her the joke about the woman
Who asked her lover, "Y is ur organ so small?"
He replied, " didn't know was playin' N a cathedral"
Vicki didn't laugh at all

This is where she wants 2 B
& am what she wants 2 C
've never known a love so sweet
But still 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 C, when crime is ur only love
All that matters: the present, the here & now
People people, whatever floats this Joker's boat
Is whatever this Joker will bang

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

Talk of children still frightens me
Is my character enuff 2 B? (Never)
1 that deserves a copy made? (Never, never)
This, 1 day, hope 2 C
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
& this is where she wants 2 stay

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

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

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

This is where she wants 2 B
