Say What You Say Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
(Dre) Oh, so I'm out the game, huh
(Eminem) Yo Dre, we ridin'?
(Dre) Whatever
(Eminem) Well I'm wit ya homie
(Dre) Okay, well let's handle the small s***
Verse 2
I was born to brew up storms, stir up s***, kick up dust, cuss till I slur up spit
Grew up too quick, went through too much, knew too much s***,
Corrupt, and I'm a pour it on like syrup, b****
Thick 'n rich, sick and twisted, Mr. Buttersworth,
Verse 3
Dre told me to milk this s*** for what it's worth
'Til the cow just tilts and tips and stumbles to earth,
And if I fumble a verse, keep going, first take
I make mistakes just keep it, no punches pull, no punches, that's weak s***
Fake s***, if I ever take s*** I'll eat s***, wasn't for him, wouldn't be s***
Verse 4
Creep with me as we take a little trip down memory lane,
Been here longer than anyone in the game
And I ain't got to lie about my age, "But what about Jermaine?
"F*** Jermaine, he don't belong speakin' mine or Timbaland's name
Verse 5
And don't think I don't read your lil' interviews and see what you're sayin',
I'm a giant, and I ain't gotta move
'Til I'm provoked, when I see you, I'ma step on you and not even know it
You midget, mini-me with a bunch of mini-yous, runnin' round your backyard swimmin' pools
Over eighty million records sold, and I ain't have to do it with ten or eleven year olds
Verse 6
[Chorus:Repeat x2]
Cause what you say is what you say, say what you say how you say it whenever you sayin' it
Just remember how you said it when you was sprayin' it,
So who you playin' wit, huh?
Verse 7
It gets worse, it gets no better than this, amateurs drink veteran piss
From a Dixie cup, if you ever mix me up or confuse me with a Cannabis or Dre with a Dupri
We'll rub it in, every club you're in,
We'll have you black balled and make sure you never rap-a-f***in'-gain/
Dre ain't havin' it as long as I'm here to play devil's advocate
Verse 8
If there was some magic s*** I could wave over the industry,
That could save it when I'm gone and buried
To make sure the tradition carries on, I would
Verse 9
If I could only use this power for good, I wouldn't, not even if I could
Verse 10
From the hood, and I'm a hornet, and I'm a only sting when I cornered
Verse 11
And I'm a only sucker punch and swing without warning
And swing to knock somebody's f***in' head off,
Cause I know if they get up, I won't get a chance to let off
Another punch, I'm punk rock, no one's punk, don't give a f***,
Verse 12
White-Pac, so much spunk
When I was little I knew I would blow up and sell a mill,
Or grow up to be Atilla, go nuts and be a killer
Verse 13
And I'm, somethin' of a phenom, one puff of the chron,
I'm unstoppable, I'm alive and on top again
There's no obstacle that I can't conquer so come along wit us?
Come on
Verse 14
[Chorus:Repeat x2]
Verse 15
Now anybody who knows Dre, knows I'm about fast cars and Alize, partyin' all day
But I handled my business, cus it' work before play, don't look for trouble,
But I'll serve you gourmet
However you want it, you can have it your way, you f*** my night up,
Verse 16
I'm a f*** up your day, bullet with your name,
Sendin' it your way, that goes for anyone who walks through that doorway
Cause this is my space, you invade it, live to regret it, and you'll die tryin' to violate it
F*** around, get annihilated, eyes dilated
Verse 17
Like my old lady?
Cause what you say is what you say, sometimes what you mean is two different things,
Depending on your mood if it swings
Think too many things, little hit of Dre's weed,
Verse 18
I can do anything, catch a contact and I'm gone
And I'm back, I speed write and my loose-leaf's my launch pad
Verse 19
And I can pull any string, don't have to prove anything
Catch a contract on your head, you headed west, talk s*** about Dre,
You better get a vest
And invest in something to protect your head and neck
Verse 20
And it's back and forth, all day like Red and Meth,
I joke when I say I'm the best, in the booth,
But a lot of truth is said in jest
And if I ever do live to be a legend I'm a die a sudden death
Five mics in the Source, ain't holdin' my f***in' breath,
But I'll suffocate for the respect 'fore I breathe/ to collect a f***in' check
Verse 21
[Chorus:Repeat x2]
Verse 22
Watch your f***in' mouth
Verse 23
Yo this Timbaland. Tell 'em I said suck, "my dick"
