1. Have you ever been hated, or discriminated against ?

      Am                                             E

    I have, I've been protested and demonstrated against,

               F                                            E

    picket signs for my wicked rhymes, look at the times

                       Am                                      E

    sick as the mind of the mother fucking kid that's behind.

 

                       Am                                           E

    All this commotion, emotions run deep as oceans, exploding,

                  Am                                                 E

    tempers flaring from parents, just blow ‘em off and keep going,

                      F                                              E

    not taking nothing from no one, give ‘em hell long as I'm breathing,

                        Am                                              E

    keep kicking ass in the morning, and taking names in the evening

 

                               Am                              E

    Leave 'em with a taste as sour as vinegar in they mouth,

                           Am                                       E

    see, they can trigger me, but they'll never figure me out.

                        F                              E

    Look at me now, I betcha prolly sick of me now,

                    Am                                              E

    ain't you, mama, I'm a make you look so ridiculous now.

 

                Am    - E                             Am          - E

I'm sorry mama,      I never meant to hurt you,

                             F

I never meant to make you cry,

           E                                       Am     - E

but tonight, I'm cleaning out my closet.             (2x)

 

                       Am                                          E

2. I got some skeletons in my closet, and I don’t know if no one knows it,

            Am                                            E

    so before they throw me inside my coffin and close it.

                  F                                         E

    I'm a expose it, I'll take you back to '73,

                 Am                                      E

    before I ever had a multi-platinum selling CD.

 

                Am                                      E

    I was a baby, maybe I was just a couple of months,

                    Am                                            E

    my faggot father must've had his panties up in a bunch,

                        F                                   E

    'cause he split, I wonder if he even kissed me goodbye,

          Am                                                         E

   no I don't, on second thought, I just fucking wished he would die.

 

                  Am                                         E

    I look at Hailie, and I couldn't picture leaving her side,

                  Am                            E

    even if I hated Kim, I grit my teeth and I try to make it work

             F                                   E

    with her, at least for Hailie's sake, I maybe made some mistakes,

               Am                                         E

    but I'm only human. but I'm man enough to face them today.

 

Am                                           E

    What I did was stupid, no doubt it was dumb,

                               Am                                          E

    but the smartest shit I did was take the bullets outta that gun,

                         F                                          E

    ‘cause I'd of killed ‘em, shit, I would've shot Kim and him both,

              Am                                                  E

    it's my life, I'd like to welcome ya'll to the Eminem show,

 

                Am    - E                             Am          - E

I'm sorry mama,      I never meant to hurt you,

                              F 

I never meant to make you cry,

           E                                       Am     - E

but tonight, I'm cleaning out my closet.             (2x)

 

                          Am                                               E

3. Now I would never diss my own mama just to get recognition,

                 Am                                                      E

    take a second to listen for who you think this record is dissing,

                         F                                 E

    but put yourself in my position, just try to envision,

                              Am                                        E

   witnessing your mama popping prescription pills in the kitchen.

 

                         Am                                                       E

    Bitching that someone's always going through her purse and shit's missing,

                                      Am                                        E

    going through public housing systems, victim of Munchausen syndrome.

F                                             E

    My whole life I was made to believe I was sick when I wasn't,

                  Am                                               E

    'til I grew up, now I blew up it makes you sick to your stomach, doesn't it?

 

              Am                                           E

    Wasn't it the reason you made that CD for me, ma?

                         Am                                     E

    So you could try to justify the way you treated me, ma?

                         F                                                      E

    But guess what, your getting older now, and it's cold when your lonely,

                           Am                                                E

    and Nathan's growing up so quick he's gonna know that you’re phoney.

 

                        Am                                              E

    And Hailie's getting so big now, you should see her, she's beautiful,

                   Am                                            E

    but you'll never see her, she won't even be at your funeral.

                      F                                                     E

    See what hurts me the most, is, you won't admit you was wrong,

                          Am                                               E

    bitch, do your song, keep telling yourself that you was a mom.

 

                  Am                                                     E

    But how dare you try to take what you didn't help me to get,

                     Am                                                 E

    you selfish bitch, I hope you fucking burn in hell for this shit !

                            F                                                    E

    Remember when Ronnie died and you said you wished it was me?

                         Am                                    E

    Well, guess what, I am dead, dead to you as can be.

 

                Am    - E                             Am          - E

I'm sorry mama,      I never meant to hurt you,

                              F

I never meant to make you cry,

           E                                       Am     - E

but tonight, I'm cleaning out my closet.             (2x)
