(6/4 time)

I've got a good by-line, they all know my name.
The queen of the sly line, I feed on your fame.
But I got my heart in the right place, it's all in the game.
If you're doing fine boy, you got my vote.
But step out of line boy and I'll go for your throat.
'Cause I got my heart in the right place, so give me a quote.

I'll ask you some questions, I'll tell you some lies.
You'll open your heart - like a friend.
I'll make up some answers - you won't recognize.
The you I create with my pen. But my heart's in the right place, now and again.

My heart's in the right place. Know what I mean?
My heart's in the right place, on page seventeen.

I'll ask you some questions, I'll tell you some lies.
You don't understand, but you will.
I'll make up some answers - cut you down to size.
Then I move in for the kill.
But my heart's in the right place. My heart's in the right place.
My heart's in the right place - it's part of the skill.

Heart's in the right place. I'm gonna destroy you and your reputation don't count for nothing with me.
'Cause I'm an old bitch you see. My heart in the right place.
Don't you agree? Heart's in the right place, just wait and see.
Heart's in the right place, don't you agree?
