Lord please forgive me for what I doFor I know not what I've done
CHORUSFather please forgive me for I know not what I doI just never had the chance to ever meet youTherefore I did not know that I would grow to bemy mother's evil seed and do these evil deeds
Momma had a baby and its head popped off (head popped off 4x)But momma don't want me, the next thing I know I'm gettin' dropped off (gettin' dropped off 4x)Ring ring ring, on the doorbell of the next door neighbors on their front porch(their front porch 4x)But they didn't want me neither so they left me on someone else's lawn(else's lawn 3x)Til somebody finally took me in my great aunt and uncle Edna and Charles (Edna and Charles 4x)They were the ones who were left in chargeMy elementary they'd gang up on me and sang this song(sang this song 4x)It went a little something like"Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lambDebbie had a Satan spawn, Satan spawnMomma why do they keep saying this I just don't understand, understandAnd by the way, where's my dad?"
Predominately, predominately, everything's always predominatelyPredominately white, predominately blackWell what about me, where does that leave meWell I guess that I'm between predominately both of 'emI think if I hear that fuckin' word again I'ma screamWhile I'm projectile vomiting, what do I look like, a comedian to you?Do you think that I'm kidding?What do I look like some kind of idi...Wait a minute, shit, don't answer thatWhy am I so misunderstood?Why do I go through so much bullshit, it such bullshit, it's tush mull bishWoe is me, there goes poor Marshall againWhining about his millions and his mansion and his sorrow he's always drownin' inAnd the dad he never had, and how his childhood was so badAnd how his mom was a dope addict, and his ex-wife how they go at itMan I'd hate to have it, as bad as that Mr. Mathers claims he had itI can't imagine it, that little rich poor white bastardneeds to take some of that cash out the bank and take a bath in itMan if I only had half of it... (shit)If you only knew the half of it
Evil deeds, while I plant these evil seedsPlease release me from these demonsI never had any of this shit planned ma, please believeI don't wanna be Satan's spawn, never got the chance to say I'm sorryNow look at all the pain I causedDear Santa Claus, why you not comin' this year again?What did I do that was so bad to deserve this?Everything could have been so perfectBut life ain't a fairytale, I'm about to be hoist up in the airForty feet below me, there's people everywhereI don't even know but who feel like they know me 'cause I'm in this ferris wheelAnd all I wanna do is go to the mall and take Hailie on the carouselWithout this crowd everywhere I gobut life is like a merry go roundHere we go now, do-si-do, now curtains up, the show must go nowRing-around-the-rosy, the show's over, you can all go home nowBut the curtain just don't close for meThis ain't how fame was supposed to beWhere's the switch I can just turn off-and-on, this ain't what I chose to beSo please God, give me the strength to have what it takes to carry onTill I pass 50 back the baton, the camera's on, my soul is gone
