Kill You is the 2nd track from Eminems 3rd Studio Album, The Marshall Mathers LP

Content[]

This song is Eminem making playful violent jabs at women, critics, haters and the general public and following his insults towards women he ended the song saying it's all a joke which he would continue to do on a song here and there after that. The pinnacle of the song and even the very first thing Eminem came up with when he first started working on the song is the hook, "You don't wanna fuck with Shady cause Shady will fucking kill you". This hook would lead to a never ending highlight at Eminem concerts in which he would have the audience sing along with him in the hook which the audiences reveled in doing.

Lyrics[]

[Intro]

When I was just a little baby boy

My momma used to tell me these crazy things

She used to tell me my daddy was an evil man

She used to tell me he hated me

But then I got a little bit older

And I realized she was the crazy one

But there was nothing I could do or say to try to change it

'Cause that's just the way she was



[Verse 1]

They said I can't rap about being broke no more

They ain't say I can't rap about coke no more (Ahh)

Slut, you think I won't choke no whore

'Til them vocal cords don't work in her throat no more? (Ahh)

These motherfuckers are thinkin' I'm playin'

Thinkin' I'm sayin' this shit 'cause I'm thinkin' it just to be sayin' it (Ahh)

Put your hands down, bitch—I ain't gon' shoot you

I'ma pull you to this bullet and put it through you (Ahh)

Shut up, slut! You're causin' too much chaos

Just bend over and take it like a slut—okay, Ma?

"Oh, now he's raping his own mother

Abusing a whore, snorting coke

And we gave him the Rolling Stone cover?"

You're goddamn right, bitch, and now it's too late

I'm triple platinum and tragedies happened in two states

I invented violence, you vile venomous volatile vicious

Vain Vicodin, *vrin vrin vrin!*

Texas Chainsaw, left his brains all

Danglin' from his neck while his head barely hangs on

Blood, guts, guns, cuts

Knives, lives, wives, nuns, sluts



[Pre-Chorus]

Bitch, I'ma kill you! You don't wanna fuck with me

Girls neither, you ain't nothin' but a slut to me

Bitch, I'ma kill you! You ain't got the balls to beef

We ain't gon' never stop beefin', I don't squash the beef

You better kill me, I'ma be another rapper dead

For poppin' off at the mouth with shit I shouldn't have said

But when they kill me, I'm bringin' the world with me

Bitches too, you ain't nothin' but a girl to me



[Chorus]

I said you don't wanna fuck with Shady ('Cause why?)

'Cause Shady will fucking kill you (Ah, ha-ha)

I said you don't wanna fuck with Shady (Why?)

'Cause Shady will fucking kill you



[Verse 2]

Bitch, I'ma kill you! Like a murder weapon, I'ma conceal you

In a closet with mildew, sheets, pillows and film you

Fuck with me, I been through Hell, shut the hell up

I'm tryna develop these pictures of the Devil to sell 'em

I ain't "acid rap," but I rap on acid

Got a new blow-up doll and just had a strap-on added

Whoops! Is that a subliminal hint?

No, just criminal intent to sodomize women again

Eminem offend? No, Eminem'll insult

And if you ever give in to him, you give him an impulse

To do it again, then if he does it again

You'll probably end up jumpin' out of somethin' up on the tenth

Bitch, I'ma kill you! I ain't done, this ain't the chorus

I ain't even drug you in the woods yet to paint the forest

A bloodstain is orange after you wash it

Three or four times in a tub, but that's normal, ain't it, Norman?

Serial killer hiding murder material

In a cereal box on top of your stereo

Here we go again, we're out of our medicine

Out of our minds and we want in yours: let us in



[Pre-Chorus]

Or I'ma kill you! You don't wanna fuck with me

Girls neither, you ain't nothin' but a slut to me

Bitch, I'ma kill you! You ain't got the balls to beef

We ain't gon' never stop beefin', I don't squash the beef

You better kill me, I'ma be another rapper dead

For poppin' off at the mouth with shit I shouldn't have said

But when they kill me, I'm bringin' the world with me

Bitches too, you ain't nothin' but a girl to me



[Chorus]

I said you don't wanna fuck with Shady ('Cause why?)

'Cause Shady will fucking kill you (Ah, ha-ha)

I said you don't wanna fuck with Shady (Why?)

'Cause Shady will fucking kill you



[Verse 3]

Know why I say these things?

'Cause ladies' screams keep creepin' in Shady's dreams

And the way things seem, I shouldn't have to pay these shrinks

These 80Gs a week to say the same things tweece

Twice, whatever, I hate these things

Fuck shots, I hope the weed'll outweigh these drinks

Motherfuckers want me to come on their radio shows

Just to argue with 'em 'cause their ratings stink

Fuck that! I'll choke radio announcer to bouncer

From fat bitch to all seventy thousand pounds of her

From principal to the student body and counselor

From in-school to before school to outta school

I don't even believe in breathin'

I'm leavin' air in your lungs

Just to hear you keep screamin' for me to seep it

Okay, I'm ready to go play, I got the machete from OJ

I'm ready to make everyone's throats ache

You faggots keep eggin' me on

'Til I have you at knifepoint, then you beg me to stop

Shut up! Give me your hands and feet

I said shut up when I'm talkin' to you

You hear me? Answer me!



[Pre-Chorus]

Or I'ma kill you! You don't wanna fuck with me

Girls neither, you ain't nothin' but a slut to me

Bitch, I'ma kill you! You don't got the balls to beef

We ain't gon' never stop beefin', I don't squash the beef

You better kill me, I'ma be another rapper dead

For poppin' off at the mouth with shit I shouldn't have said

But when they kill me, I'm bringin' the world with me

Bitches too, you ain't nothin' but a girl to me

Bitch, I'ma kill you!



[Chorus]

You don't wanna fuck with Shady ('Cause why?)

'Cause Shady will fucking kill you (Ah, ha-ha)

I said you don't wanna fuck with Shady (Why not?)

'Cause Shady will fucking kill you



[Outro]

Ha-ha-ha, I'm just playing, ladies

You know I love you
