Eminem - The Way I Am

Album: The Marshall Mathers LP
Produced By: Eminem
Recording Year: 2000


[ Intro ]

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..

[ Verse 1 ]

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 ó on this Earth
And since birth Iíve 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 thatís 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 Iím eatin or feedin my daughter
to not come and speak to me (speak to me)..
I donít know you and no,
I donít owe you a mo-therfuck-in thing
Iím not Mr. NíSync, Iím not what your friends think
Iím 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
Iím liftin you 10 feet (liftin you 10 feet).. in the air
I donít care who is there and who saw me destroy you
Go call you a lawyer, file you a lawsuit
Iíll smile in the courtroom and buy you a wardrobe
Iím tired of all you (of all you)..
I donít mean to be mean but thatís all I can be is just me

[ Chorus ]

And I am, whatever you say I am
If I wasnít, then why would I say I am?
In the paper, the news everyday I am
Radio wonít even play my jam
Cause I am, whatever you say I am
If I wasnít, then why would I say I am?
In the paper, the news everyday I am
I donít know itís just the way I am

[ Verse 2 ]

Sometimes I just feel like my father, I hate to be bothered
with all of this nonsense itís constant
And, ďOh, itís his lyrical content -
- the song ĎGuilty Conscienceí has gotten such rotten responsesĒ
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 Ďem, but not the index or pinkie
or the ring or the thumb, itís the one you put up
when you donít give a fuck, when you wonít just put up
with the bullshit they pull, cause they full of shit too
When a dudeís 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 itís at
Middle America, now itís a tragedy
Now itís 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 Iím glad cause they feed me the fuel that I need for the fire
to burn and itís burnin and I have returned

[ Chorus ]

[ Verse 3 ]

Iím 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
Iím not gonna be able to top on ďMy Name is..Ē
And pigeon-holed into some pop-py sensation
to cop me rotation at rockíníroll stations
And I just do not got the patience (got the patience)..
to deal with these cocky caucasians who think
Iím 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
Ďtil Iím grabbin my hair and Iím tearin it out
cause they drivin me crazy (drivin me crazy).. I canít take it
Iím racin, Iím pacin, I stand and I sit
And Iím thankful for ev-ery fan that I get
But I canít take a SHIT, in the bathroom
without someone standin by it
No I wonít sign your autograph
You can call me an asshole Iím glad

[ Chorus ]
