Eminem - Mockingbird

(film reel spinning)

- Hi, Papa.

(slow rap music)

- [Eminem] Yeah.

I know sometimes

things may not always make sense to you right now.

But hey

what'd Daddy always tell you?

Straighten up, little soldier.

Stiffen up that upper lip.

What you cryin' 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 tryin' to give you

The life that I never had

♪ I can see you sad even when you smile

Even when you laugh I can see it in your eyes

Deep inside you wanna cry

♪ 'cause you're scared I ain't there

Daddy's with you in your prayers

No more cryin' wipe them tears

Daddy's here no more nightmares

We gonna pull together through it

We gonna do it Laney Uncle's crazy ain't he

Ya 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

Mama'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 growin' up

As 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 got 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

So no more worries

Rest your head and go to sleep

Maybe one day we'll wake up

And this'll all just be a dream

Now hush little baby don't you cry

Everything's gonna be all right

Stiffen that upper lip 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 feel how we feel inside

It may seem a little crazy pretty baby

But I promise Mama's gonna be all right

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

♪ 'Cause Daddy couldn't buy 'em

I'll never forget that Christmas

♪ I sat up the whole night cryin' ♪

♪ 'Cause 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 gettin' broken into and robbed

Or shot up on the block

And your Mom was savin' money for you in a jar

Tryin' to 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 Mama's heart

And it seemed like everything

Was just startin' to fall apart

Mom and Dad was arguing a lot

So Mama moved back on to Chalmers in a flat

One bedroom apartment

And Dad moved back to the other side

Of Eight Mile on Novarra

And that's when Daddy went to California with his CD

And met Dr. Dre

And flew you and Mama out to see me

But Daddy had to work

You and Mama had to leave me

Then you started seein' Daddy on the TV

And Mama didn't like it

And you and Laney were too young to understand

That Papa was a rollin' stone

Mama 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 firsthand

♪ 'Cause I ever wanted to do was just make you proud

Now I'm sittin' in this empty house

Just reminiscing looking 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 Mama's only gone for the moment

Now hush little baby don't you cry

Everything's gonna be all right

Stiffen that upper lip up little lady

♪ I told ya Daddy'd here to hold ya

Through the night

♪ I know Mommy's not here right now

And we don't know why

We feel how we feel inside

It may seem a little crazy pretty baby

But I promise Mama's gonna be all right

And if you ask me to

Daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird

I'ma give you the world

I'ma buy a diamond ring for you

I'ma 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'ma break that birdie's neck

I'll go back to the jeweler who sold it to ya

And make him eat every carat

Don't f-- with Dad

Ha ha.
