Why So Serious? Lyrics

2. Why So Serious? (6:40)
"Oh, criminals in this town used to believe in things. Honor. Respect.
Look at you! What do you believe in, huh? WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IN?"
"I believe whatever doesn't kill you, simply makes you... stranger."

Good evening ladies and gentlemen
We are tonight's entertainment
How about a magic trick?
I'm gonna make this pencil disappear
You see, I'm a guy of simple taste
I enjoy dynamite and gunpowder and gasoline
You have all these rules and you think they'll save you
No, you need an ace in the hole
(Freak)

You wanna know how I got these scars?
My father was a drinker and a fiend
And one night he goes off
crazier than usual
Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself
He doesn't like that (not one bit)
So, me watching, he takes the knife to her
laughing while he does it
He turns to me and says (why so serious?)
Comes at me with the knife (why so serious?)
He sticks the blade in my mouth
Let's put a smile on that face
And why so serious?

(Look at me)
Why so serious?
(You're crazy)
I'm not. No, I'm not.
(Look at me)
Why so serious?
(You're crazy)
This city deserves a better class of criminal
And I'm gonna give it to them

Do I really look like a guy with a plan?
You know what I am? I am a dog chasing cars
I wouldn't know what to do with one if I caught it
You know, I just do things
duce a little anarchy
Come on I want you to do it, I want you to do it
You have nothing, nothing to threaten me with
If you're good at something never do it for free
(Freak)

Oh, you look nervous, is it the scars?
You want to know how I got 'em?
So I had a wife and she was
beautiful like you
Who tells me I worry too much, who tells me I ought to smile more
Who gambles and gets in deep with the sharks
One day they carve her face and we have no money
For surgeries, she can't take it
I just want to see her smile again, I just want her to know that
I don't care about the scars. So, I stick a razor in my mouth
(And do this) to myself and you know what?
She can't stand the sight of me (she leaves)
Now I see the funny side
Now I'm always smiling

(Look at me)
Why so serious?
(You're crazy)
I'm not. No, I'm not.
(Look at me)
Why so serious?
(You're crazy)
This city deserves a better class of criminal
And I'm gonna give it to them

Let's put a smile on that face
Come on

Don't talk like one of them, you're not
Even if you'd like to be
To them you're just a freak like me
They need you right now
But when they don't they'll cast you out
Like a leper

You see
Their morals
Their code
It's a bad joke
I'm just ahead of the curve

(Look at me)
Why so serious?
(You're crazy)
I'm not. No, I'm not.
(Look at me)
Why so serious?
(You're crazy)
This city deserves a better class of criminal
And I'm gonna give it to them
