I don't know why this world keep turning (Yes man)
(As the world turns we all experience things in life)
(Trials and tribulations that we all must go through)
(When someone wants to test us when someone tries our patience)
But I wish it would stop and let me off right now
I hang with a bunch of hippies
Who swallow lit roaches
Outsiders baby, and we suing the courts
They never should've booted me out of reform school
'til they threw me out the Ramada Inn
It all started when my mother took my bike away
After that, it was straight to the forty ouncers
Class clown freshman, dressed like Les Nessman
And all the other kids said Eminem's a dishead,
May be true, till I told this ***** in gym class
Yeah ***** you so big
She picked me up to snap me like a skinny twig
I felt the evilness and started transformin' (rar!)
Grabbed that ***** by her hair
And took her up to the highest diving board and tossed her down
While I drop this ***** face down and watch her belly flop
I don't know why this world keep turning (as the world turns)
(These are the days of our lives)
(These are the things we must go through day by day)
We drive around in million dollar sports cars
Outsiders, and we suing the courts
Hypochondriac, hanging out at the laundromat
Dressed like a sailor, standin' by a pale of garbage
I met a slut and said "What up, its nice to meet ya"
But I'm broke as **** and I don't get paid till the first of next month
But I ain't got no weed, no phillies, or no papers
So gimme all your money
'Cause you know your stinkin' *** is too fat to try to outrun me
That's when her *** put it on me
I fell through the glass doors
Then slid across the floor and flew right into a washin' machine
Thank god I was smokin' crack all day
All I wanted to do was rape the ***** and snatch her purse
But so I gotta catch her first
Saw the house she ran up in
Kicked the door down to murder this divorced slut
That's when I seen the bedroom door shut
You might as well come out now
I walked in and all I smelled was Liz Claiborne
She said "Come her big boy, lets get acquainted"
She came at me at full speed, nothin' could stop her
I started to beg "No, please let go"
With one leg left, now I'm hoppin' around crippled
Just trying to buy me some time, then I remembered this magic trick
Whipped that **** out, and ain't no doubt about it
I shouted "Now *****, lets see who gets the best!"

Come here!
*****, come here!
I don't know why this world keep turning
Round and round
But I wish it would stop and let me off right now
I don't know why this world keep turning
Round and round
But I wish it would stop and let me off right now
I don't know why this world keep turning
Round and round
