[Eminem] Lord please forgive me for what I do For I know not what I've done

[Chorus: Eminem] Father please forgive me for I know not what I do I just never had the chance to ever meet you Therefore I did not know that I would grow to be My mother's evil seed and do these evil deeds

[Verse One] Momma had a baby and it's head popped off (head popped off head popped off, head popped off, head popped off, head popped off) My momma don't want me the next thing I know I'm gettin dropped off (gettin dropped off, gettin dropped off, gettin dropped off, gettin dropped off) Ring ring ring on the door bell and the next door neighbors on their front porch (their front porch, their front porch, their front porch, their front porch) But they didn't want me neither so they left me on someone else's lawn (else's lawn, else's lawn, else's lawn) 'til somebody finally took me in My Great Aunt and Uncle, Edna 'n Charles (Edna 'n Charles Edna 'n Charles, Edna 'n Charles, Edna 'n Charles) They were the ones who were left in charge My elementary they gang up on me and sang this song (sang this song, sang this song, sang this song, sang this song) It went a little somethin like Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb Debbie had a Satan spawn, Satan spawn Momma why do they keep saying this I just don't understand, understand And by the way, where's my daaaaaaaaaaad?


[Verse Two] Predominantly, predominantly, everything's always predominantly Predominantly white, predominantly black, but what about me where does that leave me? Well I guess that I'm between predominantly both of 'em, I think if I hear that fuckin word again I'ma scream While I'm projectile vomiting, what do I look like, a comedian to you? Do you think that I'm kidding? What do I look like some kind of idi- wait a minute, shit, don't answer that - why am I so misunderstood? Why do I go through so much bullshit, it sucks bullshit, it's tush mull bish Woe is me, there goes poor Marshall again whinin about his millions nd his mansion and his sorrow he's always drownin in From the dad he never had, and how his childhood was so bad And how his mom was a dope addict, and his ex-wife how they go at it Man I'd hate to have it, as bad as that Mr. Mathers, claims he had it I can't imagine it, that little rich poor white bastard needs to take some of that cash out the bank and take a bath in it Man if I only had half of it Shit, if you only knew the half of it


[Verse Three] Evil deeds, while I plant these evil seeds Please release me from these demons I never had any of this shit planned mom, please believe I don't wanna be Satan's spawn, never got the chance to say I'm sorry Now look at all the pain I caused Dear Santa Claus, why you not comin this year again? What did I do that was so bad to deserve this? Everything could have been so perfect But life ain't a fairytale, I'm about to be hoist up in the air Forty feet below me, there's people everywhere I don't even know what it feel like, they know me cause I'm in this ferris wheel And all I wanna do is go to the mall and take Hailie on the carousel Without this crowd everywhere I go, but life is like a merry-go-round Here we go now, doe-se-doe now, curtains up, the show must go Now ring around the rosie, the show's over, you can all go home now But the curtain just don't close for me, this ain't how fame is supposed to be Where's the switch I could just turn off and on, this ain't what I chose to be So please God, give me the strength to have what it takes to carry on 'til I pass 50 back the baton, the camera's on, my soul is gone

[Chorus] - repeat 2X

{*gunshot*} [Eminem] Oh! {*crowd cheering*} [Eminem] That's him baby, let's go {*shells hit floor, clips inserted*} [Eminem] Detroit!
