With the Vics, Percs and a Bud Light shirt

Lyrical technician (Yeah), an electrician (Yeah)

Now, back in the days of old me (When?)
                 Dm
Right around the time I became a dope fiend (Oh)
           E7#9
Ate some codeine as a way of coping (Mm)
          Am
Taste of opiates, case of O.E.​
            Am
Turned me into smiley face emoji (Woo)
            Dm
My sh*t may not be age-appropriate
     E7#9                                   Am
But I will hit an eight-year-old in the face with a participation trophy
              Am
'Cause I have zero doubts
                Dm
That this whole world's 'bout

To turn into some girl scouts
                Am
That censorship bureau's out to (Shut me down)
        Am
So when I started this verse
                 Dm
It did start off lighthearted at first (Hmm)
                  E7#9
But it feels like I'm targeted
                  Am
Mind-bogglin' how my profit has skyrocketed
     Am
Look what I pocketed
                       Dm
Yeah, the sh*t is just like y'all had been light joggin', and

I've been runnin' at full speed
               Am
And that's why I'm ahead like my noggin', and
        Am
I'm the fight y'all get in
                        Dm
When you debate who the best, but opps, I'm white chalkin' when

[Bridge: Eminem]
Am                              Dm
   Sometimes, I wonder what the old me'd say (If what?)
E7#9                             Am
    If he could see the way sh*t is today (Look at this sh*t, man)
Am                              Dm
   He'd probably say that everything is gay (Like happy)
E7#9
   What's my name? What's my name? (Slim Shady)
 
 
 
[Verse 3: Eminem]
            Am

Dm
I'm a bigger prick than cacti be (Yeah)
    E7#9
And that's why these (What?)
                      Am
Words sting just like you were being attacked by bees (Bzz)
       Am
In the coupe, leaning back my seat (What?)
           Dm
Bumpin' R. Kelly's favorite group (Uh), the black guy (Guy) pees (Pees, haha)
E7#9
  In my Air Max 90s
      Am
White Ts, walkin' parental advisory
Am
  My transgender cat's Siamese (Why?)
 Dm
Identifies as black, but acts Chinese (Haha)
E7#9
Like a motherf**kin' Hacky Sack, I treat (What?)
    Am
The whole world 'cause I got it at my feet (Yeah)
    Am
How can I explain to you (What?)
            Dm
That even myself I'm a danger too? (Yeah)
                E7#9
I hop on tracks like a kangaroo
              E7#9
And say a few things or two to anger you
                    Am
But f**k that, if I think that sh*t, I'ma say that sh*t
Dm
Cancel me, what? Okay, that's it
    E7#9
Go ahead, Paul, quit, snake-ass prick
    Am
You male cross dresser (Haha), fake-ass b**ch
Am
  And I'll probably get sh*t for that (Watch)
    Dm
But you can all suck my dick, in fact

Dm
   You too, Paul, got two balls
E7#9
   Big as RuPaul's (Woah)
                     Am
What you thought you saw ain't what you saw (Nah)
                         Am
'Cause you're never gon' see me
                                  Dm
Caught sleepin' and see the kidnappin' never did happen
              E7#9
Like Sherri Papini, Harry Houdini
           E7
I vanish into the thin air as I'm leavin' like
 
 
[Chorus: Eminem]
 Am        Dm
Abra-abracadabra (And for my last trick)
E7#9                             Am
   I'm 'bout to reach in my bag, bruh (Like)
 Am        Dm
Abra-abracadabra (And for my last trick, poof)
E7#9                            Am
