Emperor Doofenshmirtz: It's been a charmed life,
Got all I ever wanted,
And I'm not too shy to flaunt it, you see.
It's been a sweet ride,
Everyone is genuflecting
And erecting giant statues of me.
It's like a great lunch
With all you can eat,
And I can leave my wallet at home.
And everyone pays for me,
Because it's compulsory,
Or into the stockade they're thrown.
Still, I'm a nice guy;
How many emperors
Would always remember your name?
How ya doing, Joe?
I must admit, I
May take quite a lot,
But I'll always give you plenty of blame.
It's been a sweet ride;
Life's a bowl of cherries,
And nobody's merrier than me.
Because everyone else is the proletariat,
And baby, I'm the bourgeoisie.
Look it up, Joe!
Baby, I'm the bourgeoisie!
