Eminem makin ppl cry - 02/22/05 03:38 AM

Am I the only asstart who gets misty eyed when I hear this song? This is the best Eminem song ever, and I'm not even a big fan. It's better then the pee pee song. *sniff*


Mockingbird
by Eminem

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

Hailie I know you miss your mom and
I know you miss your dad
When I'm gone but I'm trying to give you
the life that I never had
I can see you're sad, even when you smile,
even when you laugh
I can see it in your eyes, deep inside you
want to cry
Cuz you're scared, I ain't there?
Daddy's with you in your prayers
No more crying, wipe them tears
Daddy's here, no more nightmares
We gon' pull together through it, we gon' do it
Laney uncles crazy, aint he?
Yeah but he loves you girl and you better know it
We're 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 it's confusing you
Daddy's always on the move, mamma's
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 growing up his daddy that
he had to see
Daddy don't 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 gotten so bad between us
I don't see us ever being together ever again
Like we used to be when we was teenagers
But then of course everything always
happens for a reason
I guess it was never meant to be
But it's just something we have no control over and that's what destiny is
But no more worries, rest your head and go to sleep
Maybe one day we'll wake up and this will all just be a dream

[Chorus]
Now hush little baby, don't you cry
Everything's gonna be alright
Stiffen that upperlip up little lady, i told ya
Daddy's here to hold ya through the night
I know mommy's not here right now and we don't know why
We fear how we feel inside
It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby
But i promise momma's gon' be alright

It's funny
I remember back one year when daddy had no money
Mommy wrapped the Christmas presents up
And stuck 'em under the tree and said some of 'em were from me
Cuz daddy couldn't buy 'em
I'll never forget that Christmas I sat up the whole night crying
Cuz 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 broke into and robbed
Or shot up on the block and your mom was saving money for you in a jar
Tryna 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 momma's heart
And it seemed like everything was just startin' to fall apart
Mom and dad was arguin' a lot so momma moved back
On the Chalmers in the flat one bedroom apartment
And dad moved back to the other side of 8 Mile on Novara
And that's when daddy went to California with his CD and met Dr. Dre
And flew you and momma out to see me
But daddy had to work, you and momma had to leave me
Then you started seeing daddy on the T.V. and momma didn't like it
And you and Laney were to young to understand it
Papa was a rollin' stone, momma developed a habit
And it all happened too fast for either one of us to grab it
I'm just sorry you were there and had to witness it first hand
Cuz all I ever wanted to do was just make you proud
Now I'm sittin in this empty house, just reminiscing
Lookin' at your baby pictures, it just trips me out
To see how much you both have grown, it's almost like you're sisters now
Wow, guess you pretty much are and daddy's still here
Laney I'm talkin' to you too, daddy's still here
I like the sound of that, yeah
It's got a ring to it don't it?
Shh, momma's only gone for the moment

[Chorus]

And if you ask me too
Daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird
I'mma give you the world
I'mma buy a diamond ring for you
I'mma sing for you
I'll do anything for you to see you smile
And if that mockingbird don't sing and that ring don't shine
I'mma break that birdies neck
I'd go back to the jewler who sold it to ya
And make him eat every carat don't fuck with dad (haha)

Possibly the worst song to ever disgrace rap. Eminem is just embarassing himself.

Re: Eminem makin ppl cry - 02/25/05 10:45 PM

I dissagree,

Having recently split from my wife/ex wife/ babys mother, the song strikes a cord with me. His reassuring his child in the song are in these situations things you "would/will" find your self saying to your child.

It is telling his daughter on her level, we couldn't work out but we both still love you.


In a day where we have songs like "Candy Shop" by 50 cent, and any other number of "fuck anything you can" songs, I find it refreshing to look at some reality. Fucking leads to kids. Screw the wrong person and get a kid with them, and you will sound just like Eminem.

Granted it isn't about rollin on dub's, smokin herb, or digging some ho out, but it is just as real as any other rap song. And you know what else? I find it to be... *gasp*

It's a good song. Tight beat, good lyrics, good concept.

Dash, you have much learning to do.

Now to find a song about smoking herb...I need a soundtrack

Perg, you loser. The beat is incredibly boring, although it sounds fine. I understand the concept, and it's good one. The lyrics, on the other hand, are worthless. This is simply not a rap song. It's Eminem talking on beat. No clever rhymes, nothing. Crap.

It's not crap. I don't even like rap, but I like Eminem, and I think this song rocks. Since I'm me, I win. :p

Re: Eminem makin ppl cry - 02/28/05 04:27 AM

Beats don't have to be complex at all. It's not the sickest beat ever, but it works perfectly for the song.

And he doesn't clever rhymes in there, I understand that. But this song is different from most of his songs - hell, his whole album is new. He's growing as a rapper, and it's cool to watch.

The delivery is just sick...and considering the whole point of the song, I think it's damn good.

When you start holding musicians to a lable music stops growing and evolving. So it isn't gangsta rap. It is still rap however. Research its roots. Music is constantly evolving, ever changing. The fact a hard rapper with the PR image set up for him such as eminem can do a song like this is cool.

If you start holding people/musicians to what you liked about them last year you will never get break outs like Sgt Peppers lonely hearts club band, The white album, hell rap would never have come to be. Welcome change from your favorite artists.

What they do today could be the foundation of tommorrow. Eminem has allways rapped about his most personal details of his life. This really is no different it is just missing anger and angst. There is a forgivness of kim in it for the bennifit of his daughter. This is a positive message to children listening to him.

This is growth as an artist and a person. Truely I find it to be a good song and move for him. Arguing over if it is good or not however is pointless. It is all in the ear of the beholder.

Here's my 2 cents: It's from Eminem therefore it sucks. Nuff said...

Thank you Ice. Perg, I think I'm gonna blame your opinions on the weed. BTW, good songs about smokin herb to start your soundtrack: Colt 45 - Afroman, Doobie Ashtray - Devin tha Dude

Re: Eminem makin ppl cry - 03/03/05 03:02 PM

hahahaha soggy cracker hehehehe

Sorry I found that amusing....
Also the song isn't bad, but its definatly not mind numbingly awesome.... like music by the insane clown posse..whatever happened to them anyway. Thats whats wrong with you kids nowadays. ICP that was good wholesome family fun that everyone could relate to!!

...ahem....anyway

Ok back to the eminem song I think the only reason i like it is because of the last like 4 lines...makes me laugh.

blah blah blah

If you really wanted one I could probably make up some really drawn out obscure reason why it related to one or both of those things, but then I realized that's a waste of time


who cares as long as it's entertaining?
