Eminem - Mockingbird

Album: Encore
Recording Year: 2004


[ Intro ]

I know sometimes things might not always make sense to you right now
But hey, what daddy always tell youí Straighten up little soldier
Stiffen up that upper lip Whatíchu crying about?
You got me..

[ Verse 1 ]

Hailie, I know you miss your mom and I know you miss your dad
When Iím gone but Iím trying to give you the life that I never had
I can see youíre sad, even when you smile even when you laugh
I can see it in your eyes deep inside, you wanna cry
Cause youíre scared I ainít there, Daddyís with you in your prayers
No more cryin wipe them tears, Daddyís here no more nightmares
We gonna pull together through it we gonna do it
Lainie, uncleís crazy ainít he, yeah but he loves you girl and you better know it
Weíre all we got in this world when it spins, when it swirls
When it whirls, when it twirls, two little beautiful girls
Lookin puzzled, in a daze I know itís confusing you
Daddyís always on the move, Mamaís always on the news
I try to keep you sheltered from it but somehow it seems
The harder that I try to do that the more it backfires on me
All the things, growin up as daddy that he had to see
Daddy donít want you to see but you see just as much as he did
We did not plan it to be this way your mother and me
But things have got so bad between us I donít see us ever being together ever again
Like we used to be like when was teenagers but then of course everything always happen for a reason
I guess it was never meant to be but itís just something we have no control over
And thatís what destiny is, but no more worries rest your head and go to sleep
Maybe one day weíll wake up and this will all just be a dream

[ Chorus ]

Now hush little baby donít you cry everythings gonna be alright
Stiffen that upper lip up little lady I told ya
Daddyís here to hold ya through the night
I know mommyís not here right now and we donít know why
We fear how we feel inside
It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby
But I promise Mamaís gon be alright

[ Verse 2 ]

Itís funny, I remember back one year when daddy had no money
Mommy wrapped the Christamas presents up and stuck em under the tree
and said some of em were from me cause daddy couldnít buy em
Iíll never forget that Christmas I sat up the whole night cryin
Cause daddy felt like a bum, see Daddy had a job
But his job was to keep the food on the table for you and mom
And at the time every house that we lived in
Either kept getting broken into and robbed or shot up on the block
And your mom, was saving money for you in a jar trying to start a piggy bank for you
So you could go to college, almost had a thousand dollars
Till someone broke in and stole it and I know it hurt so bad it broke your mammaís heart
And it seemed like everything was just starting to fall apart
Mom and dad was arguing a lot so mama moved back on the chalmers in a flat
One bedroom apartment and dad moved back to the other side of 8 mile on Novara
And thatís when Daddy went to California with his CD
And met Dr. Dre and flew you and Mama out to see me
But daddy had to work, you and mama had to leave me
Then you started seeing daddy on the TV, and mama didnít like it
And you and Lainie were too young to understand it
That Papa was a rolling stone, Mama developed a habit
And it all happened too fast for either one of us to grab it
Iím just sorry you were there and had to witness it first hand
Cause all I ever wanted to do was just make you proud
Now Iím sittin in this empty house, just reminiscing
Looking at your baby pictures it just trips me out
To see how much you both have grown, itís almost like your sisters now
Wow, I guess you pretty much are and daddyís still here
Lainie Iím talking to you too, Daddyís still here
I like the sound of that, yeah itís got a ring to it, donít it?
Shhh, mamaís only gone for the moment

[ Chorus ]

[ Outro ]

And if you ask me to, Daddyís gonna buy you a mocking bird
Iíma give you the world, Iíma buy a diamond ring for you
Iíma sing for you, Iíll do anything for you to see you smile
And if that mockingbird donít sing and the ring donít shine
Iíma break that birdies neck
Iíll go back to the jeweler who sold it to ya
And make him eat every karat, donít fuck with dad
