[ Intro ]
Lord please forgive me for what I do?
For I know not what Iíve done?
[ Chorus ]
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 motherís evil seed and do these evil deeds
[ Verse 1 ]
Momma had a baby and itís head popped off x5
My momma didnít want me, next thing I know Iím getting dropped off x4
Ring ring ring on the door bell of the next door neighbors on their front porch. x4
But they didnít want me neither, so they left me on someone elseís lawn. x3
Til someone finally took me in, my great aunt and uncle Edna and Charles x4
They were the ones who were left in charge
My elementary theyíd gang up on me and sing this song. x4
It went a little something like: Mary had a little lamb x3
Debbie had a Satan spawn x2 Momma, why do they keep saying this?
I just donít understand, And by the way, whereís my dad?
[ Chorus ]
[ Verse 2 ]
Predominantly. Predominantly. Everythingís always predominantly
Predominantly white. Predominantly black
Well what about me? Where does that leave me?
Well I guess Iím in between predominantly both of em
I think if I hear that fucking word again Iíma scream
Wild projectile, vomiting, what do I look like a comedian to youí
Do you think that Iím kiddingí What do I look like some kind of idi-
Wait a minute shit, donít answer that, why am I so misunderstoodí
Why do I go through so much bullshit, itís such bullshit, itís tull mull bish
Woe is me, There goes poor Marshall again
Whining about his millions and his mansion and his sorrow heís always drowning in
And the dad that 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 Iíd hate to have it as bad as that Mr Mathers claims he had it, I canít imagine it
That little rich poor white bastard needs to take some of that cash out of 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 Ö
[ Chorus ]
[ Verse 3 ]
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 donít wanna be Satanís spawn, never got the chance to say Iím sorry
Now look at all the pain I caused, Dear Santa Clause
Why you not comin this year againí
What did I do that was so bad to deserve this?
Everything could have been so perfect, but life aint a fairy tale
Iím bout to be hoisted up in the air, 40 feet below me, thereís people everywhere
I donít even know but who feel like they know me cause Iím 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
Now here we go, Now dosie-do, Now curtains up, the shot must go
Now ring-around-the rosie, The shows over, You can all go home now
But the curtain just donít close for me, this ainít how fame is supposed to be
Whereís the switch I can just turn off and oní This ainít 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 cameraís on, My soul is gone
