Text písně Yellow Brick Road

what we have to do is deal with it when these individuals are young enough 
if you want to be saved not in a religious sense 
but we have to constitue what this country at times calls its only children
we seem to be approachin an age of the gross (burp) 
we all have this idea that we should move up a little bit from our parents station 
and each generation should a little better 

Eminem 
Alright come on lets cut this bullshittin and dub 
lets get it started lets start addressin this issue 
and open it up 
lets take this shit back to the basement 
and we can discuss statements thats made on this tape 
and this whole origina 
the music that we all know and love the music we all enjoy 
the music that you accuse me of tryna destroy 
lets rewind it to '89 when i was boy on the east side of detroit 
crossin 8 mile and a war and they hit territory 
id like to share a story this is my story 
and cant nobody tell it for me 
i am well aware that i dont belong here 
you made that perfectly clear 
i get my ass kicked damn theyre everywhere 
from bel air shoppin centre just for stoppin in there 
from the black side all the way to the white side 
okay theres a bright side 
a day that i might slide 
you may call it a pass i call it haulin my ass 
through that patch of grass over them railroad tracks 
oh them railroad tracks them old railroad tracks 
them good old notorious so well known tracks 

chorus: 
so lets go back 
follow the yellow brick road 
as we go on another episode 
journey with me as i take you through this nifty little place 
that i once used to call home sweet home 
come on lets go back 
follow the yellow brick road 
as we go on another episode 
journey with me as i take you through this nifty little place
that i once used to call home sweet home 

i roam the streets so much they call me a drifter 
sometimes i stick up a thumb just to hitchhike 
just to get picked up theyd give me a lift up 
8 mile and van dyke id steal a goddamn bike 
from somebodyz backyard 
and drop it off at the park 
that was the halfway mark 
to meet kim had to walk back to her mommaz and charmerz 
after dark to sneak me in the house 
when im kicked out my mumz 
thats about the time i first met proof 
wed goof hed carry on the steps said i was bored handin out some flyerz 
he was doin some talent shows at Center Line High
i told him to stop by and check this out some time 
he looked at me like im out my mind 
shook his head like white boyz dont know how to rhyme 
i spit out a line and rhymed birthday with first place 
and they both had the same rhymez that soundalike 
we was on that same shit 
that big daddy kane shit 
where compound syllables sound combined 
from that day we was down to ride 
somehow we knew we'd meet again somewhere down the line

chorus: 
so lets go back 
follow the yellow brick road 
as we go on another episode 
journey with me as i take you through this nifty little place 
that i once used to call home sweet home 
come on lets go back 
follow the yellow brick road 
as we go on another episode 
journey with me as i take you through this nifty little place
that i once used to call home sweet home 

MC Shan came through 
And said that Puma's the brand cause the Klan makes troops 
it was rumors but man god damn they flew 
musta been true because man we done banned they shoes 
I had the new ones the Cool J Ice Lambs, suede too 
But we just threw em' in the trash like they yesterday's news 
guess who came through next? X-Clan debuted 
professor X '' vanglorious, exist in a state of red, black and green with a key, sissies'' 
Now with this being the new trend we don't fit in 
crackas is out with Cactus albums blackness is in 
Africansymboles and medsllions represent black power and we ain't know what it meant 
me and my man Howard and Butter would go to the mall 
with 'em all over our necks like were showin' 'em off 
not knowin' at all we was being laughed at 
you ain't even half black you ain't supposed to have that homie let me grab that 
and that Flava Flaw clock 
we gonna have to snatch that 
all i remember is meetin' back at 
Mannix's basement, sayin' how we hate this 
how racist but dope the X-Clan's tape is 
wich reminds me, back in '89 me 
and Kim broke up for the first time she was tryin' to 2-time me 
and there was this black girl at our school who though i was cool 
cause I rapped, so she was kinda eyeing me 
and oh the irony, guess what her name was? 
ain't even gonna say it plus 
the same color hair as hers was and blue contacts 
and a pair of jugs the bomest goddamn 
girl in your whole school 
if I could pull her not only would I become more popular 
but i would be able to piss Kim off at the 
same time but it backfired , i was supposed to dump her but she dumped me for this black guy 
and that's the last i ever seen or heard or spoke to 
the Ole' foolish pride girl but i heard people say 
they heard the tape and ain't that bad but it was 
i singled out a whole race and for that i apologize 
i was wrong cause no matter what color a girl is she's still a... 

(chorus) 

My first year in 9th grade 
cant forget that day in school 
it was cool to your man
