The Real Slim Shady Lyrics

May I have your attention, please?May I have your attention, please?Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?I repeat: Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?We’re gonna have a problem hereY’all act like you’ve never seen a white person beforeJaws all on the floor like Pam, like Tommy just burst in the doorAnd started whoopin’ her ass worse than beforeThey first were divorced, throwin’ her over furniture (ahh!)It’s the return of the… “Ah, wait, no way, you’re kiddingHe didn’t just say what I think he did, did he?”And Dr. Dre said… nothing, you idiotsDr. Dre’s dead, he’s locked in my basement (ha, ha!)Feminist women love Eminem“Chicka, chicka, chicka, Slim Shady, I’m sick of himLook at him walking around grabbing his you-know-whatFlipping the you-know-who.” “Yeah, but he’s so cute though”Yeah, I probably got a couple of screws up in my head looseBut no worse than what’s goin’ on in your parents’ bedrooms (Uhh-uhh-uhh!)Sometimes, I wanna get on TV and just let loose but can’tBut it’s cool for Tom Green to hump a dead moose“My bum is on your lips, my bum is on your lips”And if I’m lucky, you might just give it a little kissAnd that’s the message that we deliver to little kidsAnd expect them not to know what a woman’s clitoris isOf course they’re gonna know what intercourse is by the time they hit fourth gradeThey got the Discovery Channel, don’t they?We ain’t nothing but mammals… well, some of us, cannibalsWho cut other people open like cantaloupesBut if we can hump dead animals and antelopesThen there’s no reason that a man and another man can’t elope (eugh!)But if you feel like I feel, I got the antidoteWomen wave your pantyhose; sing the chorus, and it goesI’m Slim Shady, yes I’m the real ShadyAll you other Slim Shadys are just imitatingSo won’t the real Slim Shady please stand upPlease stand up, please stand up?’Cause Slim Shady, yes I’m the real ShadyAll you other Slim Shadys are just imitatingSo won’t the real Slim Shady please stand upPlease stand up, please stand up?Will Smith don’t gotta cuss in his raps to sell recordsWell I do, so fuck him and fuck you, tooYou think I give a damn about a Grammy?Half o’ you critics can’t even stomach me, let alone stand me“But Slim, what if you win, wouldn’t it be weird?”Why, so you guys can just lie to get me here?So you can sit me here next to Britney Spears?Yo shit, Christina Aguilera better switch me chairsSo I can sit next to Carson Daly and Fred DurstAnd hear ’em argue over who she gave head to firstLittle bitch put me on blast on MTV“Yeah he’s cute, but I think he’s married to Kim, hehe”I should download her audio on MP3And show the whole world how you gave Eminem VD (ahh!)I’m sick of you little girl and boy groups;

The Real Slim Shady Meaning

Finally, he relates his character of Slim Shady to all of his fans, saying that while none of them can be the original Slim Shady, we’re all capable of doing the psychotic things that he does.

By this he means that he is authentically himself, and encourages listeners to be themselves too. He isn’t exactly suggesting we go out and follow in Slim Shady’s footsteps, but perhaps to follow our dreams and stand up for ourselves.

Now, nearly 25 years after the release of this song, we can see that Eminem meant what he said with “The Real Slim Shady”. He’s topped the Billboard charts with 10 different albums, sold out arenas, and headlined music festivals worldwide, and has become the best-selling rapper of all time.

Eminem has also continued to involve himself with beefs and just generally stir the pot with both his music and his persona, although he no longer has to prove himself. He’s chicka-chicka Slim Shady.
