  • Aww, look at daddy's baby girl
    That's daddy's baby, little sleepy head
    Yesterday I changed your diaper
    Wiped you and powdered you
    How did you get so big?
    Can't believe it, now you're two
    Baby, you're so precious
    Daddy's so proud of you
    Sit down, bitch! You move again
    I'll beat the shit out of you! (Okay!)

    Don't make me wake this baby!
    She don't need to see what I'm 'bout to do!
    Quit crying, bitch! Why do you always make me shout at you?!
    How could you just leave me and love him out the blue?!
    Oh, what's the matter, Kim? Am I too loud for you?!
    Too bad, bitch! You're gonna finally hear me out this time!
    At first I'm like, "Aight, you wanna throw me out, that's fine!"
    But not for him to take my place, are you out your mind?!
    This couch, this TV, this whole house is mine!
    How could you let him sleep in our bed?! Look it, Kim!
    Look at your husband now! (No!) I said look at him!
    He ain't so hot now, is he, little punk?!
    (Why are you doing this?!) Shut the fuck up! (You're drunk!
    You're never gonna get away with this!) You think I give a fuck?!
    Come on! We're going for a ride, bitch! (No!) Sit up front!
    (We can't just leave Hailie alone, what if she wakes up?)
    We'll be right back, well, I will, you'll be in the trunk!

    So long, bitch, you did me so wrong
    I don't wanna go on
    Living in this world without you
    So long, bitch, you did me so wrong
    I don't wanna go on
    Living in this world without you

    You really fucked me, Kim! You really did a number on me!
    Never knew me cheatin' on you would come back to haunt me
    But we was kids then, Kim, I was only eighteen
    That was years ago, I thought we wiped the slate clean
    That's fucked up! (I love you!) Oh God, my brain is racin'
    (I love you!) What are you doing? Change the station!
    I hate this song! Does this look like a big joke? (No!)
    There's a -year-old little
    Laying dead with a slit throat in your living room!
    Ha-ha! What, you think I'm kiddin' you?!
    You loved him, didn't you? (No!)
    Bullshit, you bitch! Don't fuckin' lie to me!
    What the fuck's this guy's problem on the side of me?
    Fuck you, asshole! Yeah, bite me!
    Kim, Kim! Why don't you like me?
    You think I'm ugly, don't you? (It's not that!) No, you think I'm ugly
    (Baby!) Get the fuck away from me! Don't touch me!
    I hate you! I hate you! I swear to God, I hate you!
    Oh my God, I love you! How the fuck could you do this to me?!
    (I'm sorry!) How the fuck could you do this to me?!

    So long, bitch, you did me so wrong
    I don't wanna go on
    Living in this world without you
    So long, bitch, you did me so wrong
    I don't wanna go on
    Living in this world without you

    Come on, get out! (I can't! I'm scared!)
    I said get out, bitch! (Let go of my hair!
    Please don't do this, baby! Please! I love you!
    Look, we can just take Hailie and leave!) Fuck you!
    You did this to us! You did it! It's your fault!
    Oh my God, I'm crackin' up, get a grip, Marshall!
    Hey, remember the time we went to Brian's party
    And you were, like, so drunk that you threw up all over Archie?
    That was funny, wasn't it? (Yes)
    That was funny, wasn't it?! (Yes!)
    See, it all makes sense, doesn't it?
    You and your husband have a fight
    One of you tries to grab a knife
    And during the struggle he accidentally gets his Adam's apple sliced (No!)
    And while this is going on, his son just woke up
    And he walks in, she panics, and he gets his throat cut
    (Oh my God!) So now they both dead
    And you slash your own throat
    So now it's double homicide and suicide with no note
    I shoulda known better when you started to act weird
    We coulda— hey, where you going? Get back here!
    You can't run from me, Kim! It's just us, nobody else
    You're only makin' this harder on yourself!
    Ha-ha, got ya! Go ahead, yell!
    Here, I'll scream with you, "Ah, somebody help!"
    Don't you get it, bitch? No one can hear you!
    Now shut the fuck up and get what's comin' to you!
    You were supposed to love me!
    Now bleed, bitch, bleed! Bleed, bitch, bleed! Bleed!

    So long, bitch, you did me so wrong
    I don't wanna go on
    Living in this world without you
    So long, bitch, you did me so wrong
    I don't wanna go on
    Living in this world without you Writer/s: Jeffrey Bass, Mark Bass, Marshall Mathers

  • Gto-saucie from NunyaDamn, I love Em but goddamn, this is messed. up. Feels like something Hopsin or NF would write about, christ no more sleep for me lol
  • Keenneth from Borås, SwedenIt is actually Eminem who is imitating Kims voice.
  • Nataliah from San Antonio, WiI love Eminem cuz he's crazy as HELL.
  • Karra from Memphis, MoThis is really how he felt at this particular time in his life. If he wants to express it musically then so be it. It's healthier to to it that way than to actually hurt someone.And if anyone says that they haven't had a thought about hurting another human being at some piont in their lives, they are flat out lying.
  • Saltine from Htown, TxA little crazy but if he has to say it, and he felt that sometimes. I respect that.
  • Homer from Springfield, KyMy friend and I were talking about rap and how pointless it is. He said "Have you ever heard of that Eminem song Kim?" And I said "No". So he said "It's not even a song. It's basically him yelling at his wife." And I thought "Gee that's pointless" And it sure is.
  • Rick from Slidell, LaPut her out in front of the whole world, lol good. U think she regrets doin it now?? lol!
  • Tyfa from North, United Kingdomoh, and it's a great song
  • Tyfa from North, United Kingdomi think there's a common thing goin on here....with the comments anyway....very few people actually take the time to do research on an artist or whoever...i also why alot of people want artists to be real, genuine and not hiding behind some facade..but when that happens, and the artists reveal their true selves, nobody likes it
  • Lola from Norwich, United Kingdom"There's a 4 year old little boy with a slit throat inside your living room"

    This refers to the son of the man Kim was supposedly having an affair with.
  • Kassidy from Mustang, Okwoww...
    this song is amazing!
    if everyone actually understood the song and the story behind it you would get it and say... hey slim never wanted it like this.. but this is how its all going down.
    slim really never wanted his life exactly like this, though this is what he got. :/

    -kassidy cheyanne(:
  • Mikayla from Tampa, Fleminem went through alot.
    1.Can someone please explain the part when he says "theres a four year old boy laying dead with a slit throat"
    um is his inner child, and eminem is talkign about kim killed his dreams and cheated on him and broke the family with her "habits".
    2.Hasn't Eminem heard that murder is a crime? Why in the heck does he really want to murder and rape his wife? Maybe he should have this quote in mind --- "If You Can't do the time, Don't do the crime!"
    u sound really stupid. he would never actually f*cken murder kim, theyve been together since they were teens, she just ruined tht family by cheating and stuff.
    eminem will be a legend, hes not hollywood sh*t. hes real, my fave movie is 8 mile. i hope he rises back up and kicks lil wayne out of the way.
  • Amy from Nunyabiz, Alwow. violent. i like.
  • Doug from Flushing, NyCan someone please explain the part when he says "theres a four year old boy laying dead with a slit throat"
  • Kristen from Omaha, TxEminem rocks.... i love this song! it's sweet in a psycho killer way. lol
  • Brian from Vancouver, CanadaI think eminems a genius. If you take the time to listen to his songs youll see theyre perfectly literal. so when people go to such lengths in order to protest or whatever its stupid. I think a lot of people listen to eminem and get offended and take it way too personally about their own life for some reason... like our friend keith who has taken the time to accuse eminem of being gay on every song recorded here.
  • Michael from Brooklyn, NyHeh, sorry to inform you all, but he divorced her (again) the same year they got married (again). 2006, in December, I believe. Looks like it'll never work out for them. Poor Em.
  • Jessica from Bishopville, MdI like the song! The video is violent but I'm alright with that. I think Eminem is going through a lot! I hope nobody takes this song literally!
  • Nina Hikari from Nowhere, MoAnd now, they've remarried. Wow, things can change pretty quick!
  • Mit from New York, NyThis is an eminem classic. It shows the pain hes gone through while dealing with the violent divorce from his wife and on the way to further stardom.
  • Kevin from Indepence, Mouuuummmm. I do know that John Davis of Korn wrote a similar song about his wife. If i am right, kim wanted him to write a song about her. and since she cheated on him so many times, and always managed to hurt him in some way, the song "Kim" was made.
  • Pilar from Cordoba, ArgentinaSorry, it seems the messagge doesn't show the way awrote it... "When it comes to what my thoughts are about the song, it's just a song written by a singer, it's a personal story. Therefor, u don't have to agree with what it says... From my point of view, Eminem doen's tell you or invite you to do anything, actually, he only shows his feeling, he always talks in "the first person", is that how u say it? so... he's noone's babysitter, isn't he?,let's not make a big deal out of this. Have any of you ever contacted him? how? I'd like that... I'm from Argentina and hi's never been here. Well, thank's for reading... Bye, Pilar CedrÃ?n Cabral (CÃ?rdoba, Argentina, South AmÃ?rica)
  • Pilar from Cordoba, ArgentinaSorry about my ignorance...i don't know mucht about Marshal's personal life, therefor, i still don't understand a few things. Who's that boy Kim song talks about?("There's a 4 year old little boy with a slit throat inside your living room"). When it comes to what my thoughts are about the song. Therefor, u don't have to agree with what is sais... From my point of view, Eminem doen's tell you or invite you to do anything, actually, he only expres his feeling, he always talks in "first person", is that how u say it? so... let's not make a big deal out of this.

  • Sarah from Cambridge, Englandabbes yes it is em making the crying sounds and also he makes th evoice of kim aswell. im glad to see that people who were dissing em have found something else to complain about coz its pathetic when people come on to sites like this to complain. however to the song i think this is a very pationate song and i feel that it is taken in the wrong way. for exapmle i was listening to it in my room and my mate walked in and started listening, after she said that it was out of order as were the things that were said on it towards kim. so we sat down and although she didnt want to i made her listen to it again and read the words then after it had finished, i asked her what she thought of it, she replied that she thought it was stiil agreessive but she saw a few lines that explained what he had been through with kim, therefore i think people need to look at ems past before judging him. hes just missunderstood.he will always go on as being my idol and indeed hero. RESPECT TO MARSHAL!!!!
  • Matt from Millbrae, CaHe didn't actually kill someone. He wrote this to get out the frustration that he had. I'm not a rap fan, but even I have to stick up for Em on this one.
  • Cookie from Auckland, New ZealandI think its great that Marshall can express how he feels. Its healthy and it must help to release the hurt that has built up inside him for so long. Good on you Marshall. Its that honesty and openess that enables you to touch people and help them realise theres always a tomorrow and always hope. Great work. Beautiful songs and touching lyrics. F*** those who criticize. They are entittled to their opinion. Bet they have never been where you have. Dare them to cast the first stone, seeing they are so free of sin. Keep it up. My kids and I think you are great!
  • Annabelle from Eugene, OrHasn't Eminem heard that murder is a crime? Why in the heck does he really want to murder and rape his wife? Maybe he should have this quote in mind --- "If You Can't do the time, Don't do the crime!"
  • Jade from Liverpool, Cti think eminem is great and it is up to him what songs he brings out no matter what people thinik of him, whether it is about killing his wife! eminem is the best ever n always will be! he cares about her cause she is the mother of his child who he loves so much. no matter what peple say about him he always holds his head high so there is no point writing bad things about him cause he wont care! from a big eminem fan.
  • A.j. from Chicago, IlDamn. This guy is screwed up. Something like "Sit down, b--ch!!! You move again and I'll beat the s--t outta you!!" It's really powerful and disturbing, but no where as disturbing as "Down With the Sickness" by Disturbed where some guy's pretending he's 14 and yelling out his mother; calling her an abusive whore and not to hit him with a belt or something. I bought 2 of this Marshall guy's CDs and I can't listen to him anymore.
  • Josie from Colchester, EnglandI think that this song is really powerful! I think that this song just shows us his fans how much he is hurtting by wot kim did!
  • Scott Baldwin from Edmonton, Canadathis song's funny,made me laugh when i first heard it.
  • Tyler from Tallahassee, FlKim was orginally a song called "B*tch so wrong,
    And was realsed on his earlyer albums.
    After reviewing Marshall Mathers LP since he seiad it was a dark CD as it was he decscided to fix up some of the lyrics and recorded a clearer and louder verison of it.

    Whean Eminem saw a movie that reminded of him and Kims problems he just started thinking a song based on it in his head and just wrong some notes for it on a piece of paper as thier relanship began to go more downhill he went to see the movie again and fineally wrote it.

    Eminem orginally had the words "Theirs a 4 year old little boy with a slit throat inside your liveing room" but Interscope seiad that was "to extreme" and just bleped the one part out of the song.
  • Abbes from Windsor, CanadaMy favourite song from him, brilliant. Btw is that him making the crying sounds :P
  • Chris from Monticello, KyThis is a very powerful song with a lot of emotion to it. Passion isn't always romantic. A lot of the problem was this song was taken to literally.
  • Esther from Liverpool, EnglandAmazing song..powerful...he doesn't want to kill his wife really, he just has a lot of passion where she's concerned, they've both hurt each other.
