I never knew I
I never knew I
Mic check one-two
I never knew I

Who woulda knew?
I never knew I
Who'da known?
I never knew I

**** who woulda thought?
I never knew I
************ comes out
I never knew I

And sells a couple of million records
I never knew I
And these ************s hit the ceiling
I never knew I

I don't do black music, I don't do white music
I make fight music, for high school kids
I put lives at risk when I drive like this
I put wives at risk with a knife like this (Ah!)

****, you probably think I'm in your tape deck now
I'm in the back seat of your truck, with duct tape stretched out
Ducked the **** way down, waitin' to straight jump out
Put it over your mouth, and grab you by the face, what now?

Oh you want me to watch my mouth, how?
Take my ****in' eyeballs out, and turn em around?
Look, I'll burn your ****in' house down, circle around
And hit the hydrant, so you can't put your burning furniture out

(Oh my God! Oh my God!) I'm sorry, there must be a mix-up
You want me to fix up lyrics while the President gets his **** sucked?
**** that, take drugs, rape sluts
Make fun of gay clubs, men who wear make-up

Get aware, wake up, get a sense of humor
Quit tryin' to censor music, this is for your kid's amusement
(The kids!) But don't blame me when lil' Eric jumps off of the terrace
You should of been watchin' him, apparently you ain't parents

[Chorus]
'Cause I never knew I, knew I would get this big
I never knew I, knew I'd affect this kid
I never knew I'd, get him to slit his wrist
I never knew I'd, get him to hit this *****
I never knew I, knew I would get this big
I never knew I, knew I'd affect this kid
I never knew I'd, get him to slit his wrist
I never knew I'd, get him to hit this *****

So who's bringin' the guns in this country? (Hm?)
I couldn't sneak a plastic pellet gun through customs over in London
And last week, I seen a Schwarzenegger movie
Where he's shootin' all sorts of these ************s with a Uzi
I sees three little kids, up in the front row,
Screamin' "Go" with their 17-year-old Uncle
I'm like, "Guidance, ain't they got the same moms and dads
Who got mad when I asked if they liked violence?"
And told me that my tape taught 'em to swear
What about the makeup you allow your 12 year old daughter to wear?
So tell me that your son doesn't know any cuss words
When his bus driver's screamin' at him, ****in' him up worse
("Go sit the **** down, you little ****in' prick!")
And **** was the first word I ever learned
Up in the third grade, flippin' the gym teacher the bird (Look!)
So read up, about how I used to get beat up
Peed on, be on free lunch, and change school every 3 months
My life's like kinda what my wife's like (what?)
****ed up after I beat her ****in' *** every night, Ike
So how much easier would life be
If 19 million ************s grew to be just like me?

[Chorus]

I never knew I, knew I'd
Have a new house or a new car
A couple years ago I was more poorer than you are
I don't got that bad of a mouth, do I?
**** **** *** **********, shooby-de-doo-wop (what?)
Skibbedy-be-bop, a-Christopher Reeves
Sonny Bono, skis horses and hittin' some trees (Hey!)
How many retards will listen to me
And run up in the school shootin' when they're pissed at a
Teacher, her, him, is it you is it them?
"Wasn't me, Slim Shady said to do it again!"
Damn! How much damage can you do with a pen?
Man I'm just as ****ed up as you would of been
If you would of been, in my shoes, who would of thought
Slim Shady would be somethin' that you would of bought
That would of made you get a gun and shoot at a cop
I just said it, I ain't know if you'd do it or not

[Chorus]

How the **** was I supposed to know?
