Lyrics[edit]

Eminem: Whatever..
        Dre, just let it run
        Aiyyo turn the beat up a little bit
        Aiyyo.. this song is for anyone.. fuck it
        Just shut up and listen, aiyyo..
        I sit back with this pack of Zig Zags and this bag
        Of this weed it gives me the shit needed to be
        The most meanest MC on this -- on this Earth
        And since birth I've been cursed with this curse to just curse
        And just blurt this berserk and bizarre shit that works
        And it sells and it helps in itself to relieve
        All this tension dispensin these sentences
        Gettin this stress that's been eatin me recently off of this chest
        And I rest again peacefully (peacefully)..
        But at least have the decency in you
        To leave me alone, when you freaks see me out
        In the streets when I'm eatin or feedin my daughter
        To not come and speak to me (speak to me)..
        I don't know you and no,
        I don't owe you a mo-therfuck-in thing
        I'm not Mr. N'Sync, I'm not what your friends think
        I'm not Mr. Friendly, I can be a prick
        If you tempt me my tank is on empty (is on empty)..
        No patience is in me and if you offend me
        I'm liftin you 10 feet (liftin you 10 feet).. in the air
        I don't care who is there and who saw me destroy you
        Go call you a lawyer, file you a lawsuit
        I'll smile in the courtroom and buy you a wardrobe
        I'm tired of arguin' (of arguin')..
        I don't mean to be mean but that's all I can be is just me

Manson: And I am, whatever you say I am
        If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
        In the paper, the news everyday I am
        Radio won't even play my jam
        Cause I am, whatever you say I am
        If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
        In the paper, the news everyday I am
        I don't know it's just the way I am

Eminem: Sometimes I just feel like my father, I hate to be bothered
        With all of this nonsense it's constant
        And, "Oh, it's his lyrical content -
        - the song 'Guilty Conscience' has gotten such rotten responses"
        And all of this controversy circles me
        And it seems like the media immediately
        Points a finger at me (finger at me)..
        So I point one back at 'em, but not the index or pinkie
        Or the ring or the thumb, it's the one you put up
        When you don't give a fuck, when you won't just put up
        With the bullshit they pull, cause they full of shit too
        When a dude's gettin bullied and shoots up his school
        And they blame it on Marilyn (on Marilyn).. and the heroin
        Where were the parents at? And look where it's at
        Middle America, now it's a tragedy
        Now it's so sad to see, an upper class ci-ty
        Havin this happenin (this happenin)..
        Then attack Eminem cause I rap this way (rap this way)..
        But I'm glad cause they feed me the fuel that I need for the fire
        To burn and it's burnin and I have returned

Manson: And I am, whatever you say I am
        If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
        In the paper, the news everyday I am
        Radio won't even play my jam
        Cause I am, whatever you say I am
        If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
        In the paper, the news everyday I am
        I don't know it's just the way I am

Eminem: I'm so sick and tired of bein admired
        That I wish that I would just die or get fired
        And dropped from my label and stop with the fables
        I'm not gonna be able to top on "My Name is.."
        And pigeon-holed into some pop-py sensation
        To cop me rotation at rock'n'roll stations
        And I just do not got the patience (got the patience)..
        To deal with these cocky caucasians who think
        I'm some wigger who just tries to be black cause I talk
        With an accent, and grab on my balls, so they always keep askin
        The same fuckin questions (fuckin questions)..
        What school did I go to, what hood I grew up in
        The why, the who what when, the where, and the how
        'til I'm grabbin my hair and I'm tearin it out
        Cause they drivin me crazy (drivin me crazy).. I can't take it
        I'm racin, I'm pacin, I stand and I sit
        And I'm thankful for ev-ery fan that I get
        But I can't take a SHIT, in the bathroom
        Without someone standin by it
        No I won't sign your autograph
        You can call me an asshole I'm glad

Manson: And I am, whatever you say I am
        If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
        In the paper, the news everyday I am
        Radio won't even play my jam
        Cause I am, whatever you say I am
        If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
        In the paper, the news everyday I am
        I don't know it's just the way I am

Eminem: And I am, whatever you say I am
        If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
        In the paper, the news everyday I am
        Radio won't even play my jam
        Cause I am, whatever you say I am
        If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
        In the paper, the news everyday I am
        I don't know it's just the way I am

Trivia[edit]

  • Throughout 2000 and 2001, Manson would often join the stage at Eminem shows to perform the song.
  • When the line "and they blame it on Marilyn" is said, the choir heard during the chorus of "The Beautiful People" is sampled.
