Whatever 
Dre just let it run 
Ey yo turn the beat up a little bit 
Ey yo this song is for anyone 
Fuck it just shut up and listen 

Ey yo 
I sit back, with this pack, of zigzags 
And this bag, of this weed 
It gives me, the shit needed to be, the most meanest MC on this 
On this earth 'cause since birth I've been cursed with this curse to just curse 
And just blurt this berserk and bizarre shit that works 
And it sells and it helps in its self to relieve 
All this tension dispensing me, sentence is getting it
The stress has been eating me, recently 
Off of this chest and I rest to get peacefully 
But at least have the decency in you to leave me alone 
When you freaks see me out in the streets
When I'm eating or feeding my daughter to not come and speak to me 
I don't know you and no I don't owe you a motherfuckin' thing 
I'm not Mr.'N Sync and I'm not what your friends think 
I'm not Mr.Friendly, I can be a prick, if you tempt me my tank is on empty 
No patience is in me and if you offend me I'm lifting you ten feet 
In the air, I don't care who was there and who saw me just jaw you 
Go call you a lawyer
File you a lawsuit, I'll smile in the courtroom and buy you a wardrobe 
I'm tired of all you
I don't mean to be mean but it's all I can be, it's just me 

And I am, whatever you say I am 
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am? 
In the papers, the news, everyday I am 
Radio won't even play my jam 
'Cause I am, whatever you say I am 
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am? 
In the papers, the news, everyday I am 
I don't know it's just the way I am 

Sometimes I just feel like my father, I hate to be bothered 
With all of this nonsense it's constant, and "oh it's his lyrical content!" 
The song "Guilty Conscience" has gotten such rotten responses 
And all of this controversy circles me and it seems 
Like the media immediately points a finger at me 
So I point one back at 'em, but not the index or the pinky 
Or the ring or the thumb, it's the one you put up when you don't give a fuck 
When you won't just put up with the bullshit they pull 
'Cause they full of shit too 
When a dude's gettin' bullied and shoots up his school 
And they blame it on Marilyn 
And the heroin, where were the parents at? 
And look at where it's at 
Middle America, now it's a tragedy, now it's so sad to see 
An upper class city having this happening 
Then attack Eminem 'cause I rap this way 
But I'm glad 'cause they feed me the fuel 
That I need for the fire to burn and it's burnin' and I have returned 

And I am, whatever you say I am 
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am? 
In the papers, the news, everyday I am 
Radio won't even play my jam 
'Cause I am, whatever you say I am 
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am? 
In the papers, the news, everyday I am 
I don't know it's just the way I am 

I'm so sick and tired of being admired 
That I wish that I would just die or get fired 
And drop from my label and stop with the fables 
I'm not gonna be able to top on "My name is" 
And pigeon holdin' to some poppy sensations 
They cop me rotation at rock 'n' roll stations 
And I just do not got the patience 
To deal with these cocky Caucasians 
Who think I'm some wigga who just tries to be black 
'Cause I talk with an accent and grab on my balls 
So they always keep asking the same fucking questions 
What school did I go to, what hood I grew up in, the why, the who, what
When and where and the how, 'til I'm grabbing my hair and I'm tearing it out 
You've been driving me crazy
I can't take it, I'm racing, I'm pacing, I stand and I sit 
And I'm thankful for every fan that I get, but I can't take a shit 
In the bathroom without someone standing by it 
No I won't sign your autograph, you can call me an asshole, I'm glad 

'Cause I am, whatever you say I am 
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am? 
In the papers, the news, everyday I am 
Radio won't even play my jam 
'Cause I am, whatever you say I am 
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am? 
In the papers, the news, everyday I am 
I don't know it's just the way I am
