EMINEM - Mockingbird Lyrics lyrics

rate me

[ Intro ]


I know sometimes things might not always make sense 2 u right now

But hey, what daddy always tell you?

Straighten up little soldier

Stiffen up that upper lip

What'chu crying about?

u got me..

[ Verse 1 ]

Hailie, I know u miss ur mom

And I know u miss ur dad when I'm gone

But I'm trying 2 give u the life that I never had

I can see ur sad

Even when u smile

Even when u laugh

I can see it in ur eyes

Deep inside, u wanna cry

Cuz ur scared

I ain't there?

Daddy's with you in your prayers

No more crying

Wipe them tears

Daddy's here

No more nightmares

We gonna pull together through it

We gon' do it

Laini, uncle's crazy ain't he?

Yeah 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

Looking 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 u sheltered from it

But somehow it seems, the harder that I try 2 do that

the more it backfires on me

All the things, growing up

As daddy that he had 2 see

Daddy don't want u 2 see

But u see just as much as he did (to see?)

We did not plan it to be this way

ur mother and me

But things have got so bad between us

I don't see us ever being

Together ever again

Like we used 2 be when we was teenagers

But then of course

Everything always happens 4 a reason

I guess it was never meant 2 be

But it's just something

We have no control over

And that's what destiny is

But no more worries

Rest ur head and go to sleep

Maybe one day we'll wake up

And this will all just be a dream

[ Chorus ]

Now hush little baby don't u cry

Everythings gonna be alright

Stiffen that upper lip up little lady

I told ya, daddy's here 2 hold ya

Through the night

I know mommy's not here right now and we don't know why

We fear how we feel inside

It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby

But I promise, Mama's gonna be alright

[ Verse 2 ]

It's funny

I remember back one year when daddy had no money

Mommy wrapped the Christamas presents up

and stuck them under the tree

and said some of them were from me

Cos daddy couldn't buy em

I'll never forget that Christmas

I sat up the whole night cryin'

Cuz 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 getting broken into and robbed or shot up on the block

And your mom, was saving money

For you in a jar trying 2 start a piggy bank 4 u

So u can go 2 college

Almost had a thousand dollars

Till someone broke in and stole it

And I know it hurt so bad it broke ur mama's heart

And it seemed like everything was just starting to fall apart

Mom and dads was arguing a lot

So mama moved back on the Chalmers and the flat

One bedroom apartment

And dad moved back 2 the other side of 8 mile on Novarra

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

And met Dr. Dre and flew u and Mama out 2 see me

But daddy had to work

u and mama had to leave me

Then u started seeing daddy on the TV

And mama didn't like it

And you and Laini were 2 young 2 understand it

Papa was a rolling stone

mama developed a habit

and it all happened 2 fast for either one of us to grab it

I'm just sorry you were there and had to witness it first hand

Cuz all I ever wanted 2 do was just make u proud

Now I'm sittin' in this empty house, just reminiscin'

Looking at ur baby pictures it just trips me out

2 see how much u both have grown

It's almost like ur sisters now

Wow, I guess u pretty much are

And daddy's still here

Laini I'm talking to u 2

Daddy's still here

I like the sound of that yeah

It's got a ring to it, don't it?

Shhh, mama's only gone for the moment

[ Chorus ]

Now hush little baby don't u cry

Everythings gonna be alright

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 but we don't know y

We fear how we feel inside

It may seem a little crazy pretty baby

But I promise

Mama's gonna be alright

[ Outro]

And if you ask me to,

Daddy's gonna buy you a mocking bird

I'ma give u the world

I'ma buy a diamond ring for you

I'ma sing for you, I'll do anything 4 u to see u smile

And if the mockingbird don't sing and the ring don't shine

I'ma break that birdy's neck

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

And make him eat every karat

Don't mess with dad.
