  • Psst, hey, listen
    Yeah (da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    I love my job (woo)
    Makes me feel like Superman
    (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    Can you fly? I can, wanna see?

    I'm only entertainin' you, my
    Goal is to stimulate, makin' you high
    And take you and I
    To a place that you can't see but I believe you can fly
    I don't mean nobody harm, I'm just partyin'
    I'm not your dad, not your mom, not your guardian
    Just the man who's on the mic
    So let me entertain you

    My lyrical content is constantly under fire
    No wonder why I constantly bomb back
    To combat attacks with constant concepts
    When lyrics are constantly took out of context
    Failure to communicate with Congress has
    Been a problem for the longest, I guess
    But maybe one day we can make some progress
    Food for thought, see how long it takes to digest
    Feeling good when I should be ashamed
    Shit, I really shoulda fell but I stood, see, I came
    Like a flame in the night, like a ghost in the dark
    There's a ray, there's a light, there's a hope, there's a spark
    But when planets collide, they'll never see eye to eye
    Until they decide to set their differences aside
    And this is why only one of us will survive
    So children, follow my lead and feel the vibe, because

    I'm only entertainin' you, my
    Goal is to stimulate, makin' you high
    And take you and I
    To a place that you can't see but I believe you can fly
    I don't mean nobody harm, I'm just partyin'
    I'm not your dad, not your mom, not your guardian
    Just the man who's on the mic
    So let me entertain you (yeah)

    My music can be slightly amusing
    You shouldn't take lyrics so serious, it might be confusin'
    Tryna separate the truth from entertainment
    It's stupid, ain't it? I get sick of tryin' to explain it
    See, I could sit and argue with you, but it goes beyond
    Just being a snot, pointy-nosed bleach-blond
    'Cause I came here to uplift, let your woes be gone
    Tell 'em to get fucked and just mosey on
    Constantly movin', constantly usin'
    The Constitution as a form of restitution
    Bless the children, nothin' less than brilliant
    Let me entertain you like Robbie Williams
    I'll be here when y'all are gone, rebuilding
    World revolving, still evolving, still Slim
    How many kids'll copy? Probably millions
    But I'ma do this as a fuckin' hobby 'til then, 'cause

    I'm only entertainin' you, my
    Goal is to stimulate, makin' you high
    And take you and I
    To a place that you can't see but I believe you can fly
    I don't mean nobody harm, I'm just partyin'
    I'm not your dad, not your mom, not your guardian
    Just the man who's on the mic
    So let me entertain you (yeah)

    My lyrical content contains subject matter
    That sucks up all these fucked-up young kids
    At a alarming rate, common denominate
    Add it up and you'll see just why I dominate
    I try to stimulate, but kids emulate
    And mimic every move you make, "Slim, you great"
    But wait, can't you see I'm only here to entertain?
    I gotta be the one to go against the grain
    'Cause man, I see it, feel it, live it, but it's inhumane
    For me to see you be influenced and pretend you ain't
    But they don't understand that I've been through pain
    If you get to know me I could be a friend you gain
    But you can't just stand there and try to judge
    It hurts but your jealousy probably tears you up inside as much
    And it's such a pleasure, every button that I touch
    I treasure every glutton that I punish in my lust, but

    I'm only entertainin' you, my
    Goal is to stimulate, makin' you high
    And take you and I
    To a place you that can't see but I believe you can fly
    I don't mean nobody harm, I'm just partyin'
    I'm not your dad, not your mom, not your guardian
    Just the man who's on the mic
    So let me entertain you (yeah)
