Listen, you lions and tigers and bears
Notoriously known as those things that scare
Wreaking havoc and causing disasters
Well, now I'm coming for all you bastards
My foot's on the pedal, my fork's in the steak
I'm ready to blow your horse off the reins
Shake my thunder and hear me roar
You've never heard a thing like this before
I heed not your warnings, I fear not your stare
My time bombs are whispering “Come close if you dare”
While your cavalry creeps through my 'hood
I've got my goon squad posted up in your woods
We're down in the valley, we're up in the cut
We've got all the trees scared out of their trunks
I got all my people outlining your block
While your friends and allies are outlined in chalk
We took all them bodies and gave them the toss
We showed your mama's mama's mama who's boss
We may be thugs, gangsters, and playas
But not like dem lions and tigers and bears.

Eninem is the best! I am a big fan of Eninem too! :) I love his toughness and determination, also I love the music that he puts in his songs, it sounds nostalgic and old but in a good way( We made you and Forever.) He also puts a lot of messages in his music(Love the way you lie with Rihanna) really represented abuse). I need to put more Eninem on my iPod, only thing with Eninem I've got is Forever...
