Lyrics: 

(muttering stuff)

VERSE 1:
I played Johnny Cash in "Walk the Line",
You think I've gone crazy, but I feel fine.
I'm switching to music, this ain't no trick,
When I scratch my beard, it's a nervous tick.

VERSE 2:
I'm done with acting if you can believe it.
Don't ask about "Two Lovers" 'cuz I haven't seen it.
I'm new to hip-hop, but I'll beat your asses,
You'll never see me without these glasses.

CHORUS:
They call me The Phoenix (that's my hip-hop name),
'Cuz I rhyme through the ashes (and beat through the flames).
I'm quitting movies 'cuz hair and makeup suck,
I'm Joaquin Phoenix and I'm crazy as...
(Ahhhh, ah ahhhhhh, Ahhhh, ah ahhhhhh)

VERSE 3:
Ya'll laugh at me, but this is my life,
Don't be like Schaeffer or I'll pull out my knife.
I chew gum cuz I'm all nonchalant,
I'm the Emperor, I DO WHAT I WANT!

VERSE 4:
Shut up Letterman, enough with the beard,
Before I felt fine, but now I feel weird,
If you ask me a question I've got nothing to say,
________________________.

BRIDGE:
(8 bars of muttering stuff)

CHORUS:
They call me The Phoenix (that's his hip-hop name,)
'Cuz I rhyme through the ashes (and burst through the flame).
I'm quitting acting ('cuz movies suck),
I'm Joaquin Phoenix and Im crazy as...
(Ahhhh, ah ahhhhhh, Ahhhh, ah ahhhhhh)
