Kim Lyrics

[Intro: Eminem & Kim]
Aw, 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!)

[Verse 1: Eminem & Kim]
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?!
C’mon! 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

[Chorus: Eminem]
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

[Verse 2: Eminem & Kim]
You really fucked me, Kim, you really did a number on me!
Never knew me cheating 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 [four]-year-old little [boy]
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 fucking 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’tchu? (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?!

[Chorus: Eminem]
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

[Verse 3: Eminem & Kim]
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 making this harder on yourself!
Ha-ha, gotcha! 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!

[Chorus: Eminem]
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

About the “Kim” song:

Written in 1998, Kim is the prequel to The Slim Shady LP‘s “97’ Bonnie & Clyde” (1997).

This track was deemed too explicit for the “clean” version of the album, so it couldn’t be censored, but instead got replaced with a South Park-themed track titled “The Kids”.

Eminem in “Angry Blonde”:

This little media favorite was actually the first official song that I wrote for the album. I had to complete it back in 98, when the first album was done. I wrote this song when Kim and I weren’t together. We were broken up at the time. This was the end of 98. I remember I was watching a movie one day that inspired me to write a love song, but I didn’t want to make a corny love song. It had to be some bugged-out shit. Though I don’t remember what movie it was, I do remember feeling the frustration of us breaking up and having a daughter all in the mix. I really wanted to pour my heart out, but yet I wanted to scream. So the same day I went to the flick, I went back to the studio and once again walked into a session with the perfect beat already playing. Surprisingly enough “Kim” was the only track on the album that I had nothing to do with in terms of production. FBT created that track and they had it already for me in the studio. When I started writing the song I thought that maybe I could tie it into “‘97 Bonnie and Clyde”. So I decided to make it a prequel. You never would’ve thought but I played it for her once we started talking. I asked her to tell me what she thought of it. I remember my dumb-ass saying “I know this is a fucked-up song but it shows how much I care about you. To even think about you this much. To even put you in a song like this.” I did the vocals in one take. The mood I wanted to capture was that of an argument that me and her would have, and judging from the attention the media has given this song, you can see that’s exactly what I did… and then some.

— Eminem about the “Kim” song in Angry Blonde book from 2000

From a Rolling Stone article:
Em has played [this song] for [Kim] already and claims that now she is truly convinced that he is insane. “If I was her, I would have ran when I heard that shit,” [Dr.] Dre says. “It’s over the top — the whole song is him screaming. It’s good, though. Kim gives him a concept.”
