Scarecrow Filk

Since I don't have much time left at my job, my mind is now beginning to...well, wander.  I recently had "If I Only Had A Brain" from the Wizard of Oz stuck in my head, so I figured I'd alter the song so that it could describe Professor Jonathan Crane aka the Scarecrow:

I watch as the time passes
Conferrin’ with my gasses

Consultin’ my big brain.

And my head I’d be scratchin’ while
My schemes were busy hatchin’
My name is Professor Crane.

I got locked up with the Riddler
Two-Face, and the Fiddler,

I share a cell with Bane.

With the fear that I’m spreadin’
Gotham City will be dreadin’
My name is Professor Crane.

Oh, I could attack you through the water that you drink
Alter the way you perceive and think
And then you’ll be too afraid to blink

I would not just be a has-been
In this Asylum where I’m spazzin’

Medication through my vein.

If I could get just one more job in
I’d defeat Batman and Robin

My name is Professor Crane
