"Superman" as written by and Mathers/bass/king....
Mm
You high baby?
Yeah
Yeah?
Ha ha ha
Talk to me
You want me to tell you somethin'
Uh huh
I know what you wanna hear

'Cause I know you want me baby
I think I want you too
I think I love you baby
I think I love you too
I'm here to save you girl
Come be in Shady's world
I wanna grow together
Let's let our love unfurl
You know you want me baby
You know I want you too
They call me Superman
I'm here to rescue you
I wanna save you girl
Come be in Shady's world

Oh boy you drive me crazy

Bitch you make me hurl

They call me Superman
Leap tall hoes in a single bound
I'm single now
Got no ring on this finger now

I'll never let another chick bring me down
In a relationship, save it bitch, babysit? You make me sick
Superman ain't savin' shit, girl you can jump on Shady's dick
Straight from the hip, cut to the chase
I'll tell the motherfucking slut to her face
Play new games, say new names, ever since I broke up with what's her face
I'm a different man, kiss my ass, kiss my lips, bitch why ask?
Kiss my dick, hit my cash, I'd rather have you whip my ass
Don't put out? I'll put you out
Won't get out? I'll push you out
Puss blew out, poppin' shit
Wouldn't piss on fire to put you out
Am I too nice? Buy you ice
Bitch if you died, wouldn't buy you life
What you tryin' to be, my new wife?
What you Mariah? Fly through twice
But I do know one thing though
Bitches they come, they go
Saturday through Sunday Monday
Monday through Sunday yo
Maybe I'll love you one day
Maybe we'll someday grow
'Til then just sit your drunk ass on that fuckin' runway hoe

'Cause I can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
I can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Your superman, your superman

Don't get me wrong
I love these hoes
It's no secret
Everybody knows
Yeah we fucked
Bitch so what?
That's about as far as your buddy goes
We'll be friends
I'll call you again,
I'll chase you around every bar you attend
Never know what kind of car I'll be in
We'll see how much you'll be partying then
You don't want that
Neither do I
I don't wanna flip when I see you with guys
Too much pride
Between you and I
Not a jealous man, but females lie
But I guess that's just what sluts do
How could it ever be just us two?
Never loved you enough to trust you
We just met and I just fucked you
But I do know one thing though
Bitches they come they go
Saturday through Sunday Monday
Monday through Sunday yo
Maybe I'll love you one day
Maybe we'll someday grow
'Till then just sit your drunk ass on that fuckin' runway hoe
I know you want me baby
I think I want you too
I think I love you baby

I think I love you too
I'm here to save you girl
Come be in Shady's world
I wanna grow together
Lets let our love unfurl
You know you want me baby
You know I want you too
They call me Superman
I'm here to rescue you
I wanna save you girl
Come be in Shady's world

Oh boy you drive me crazy
Bitch you make me hurl
First thing you said
I'm not phased,
I hang around big stars all day,
I don't see what the big deal is anyway,
You're just plain ol' Marshall to me
Ooh yeah girl run that game
Hailie Jade I love that name,
Love that tattoo, what's that say?
Rot in pieces' aw that's great
First off you don't know Marshall
At all so don't grow partial
That's ammo for my arsenal
I'll slap you off that bar stool
There goes another lawsuit
Leave hand prints all across you
Good lordy-wody you must be gone off that water bottle
You want what you can't have
Ooh girl that's too damn bad
Don't touch what you can't grab
End up with two back hands
Put Anthrax on a Tampax and slap you till you can't stand
Girl you just blew your chance
Don't mean to ruin your plans
But I do know one thing though
Bitches they come they go
Saturday through Sunday Monday
Monday through Sunday yo
Maybe I'll love you one day
Maybe we'll someday grow
'Til then just sit your drunk ass on that fuckin' runway hoe

I know you want me baby
I think I want you too
I think I love you baby
I think I love you too
I'm here to save you girl
Come be in Shady's world
I wanna grow together
Let's let our love unfurl
You know you want me baby
You know I want you too
They call me Superman
I'm here to rescue you
I wanna save you girl
Come be in Shady's world
Oh boy you drive me crazy
Bitch you make me hurl

'Cause I can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
I can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Your superman, your superman

'Cause I can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
I can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Can't be your superman
Your superman, your superman

    General CommentDude, it's a *parody!*

    Eminem's just making fun of all those songs out there that are like "I think I love you baby, I think I love you too..." etc. He's basically saying that they're full of shit and guys who say those things are most likey paying their girl lip service to score.

    He's also saying (between the lines) that girls who buy this BS are stupid; he's not slamming females in general.

    It's strange how intellegent his lyrics can be.

    General Commentim sure a lot of people are gonna get pissed off by this song but im a feminist, and i think this song is kind of sad. it says a lot about him. His mother was a drug addict, and it sounds like his wife was a cheating drug addict, so of course he doesn't trust women! Doesn't sound like he's met one that is worth his time. If a female came out with a song like this no one would blink an eye, but its true, women can be just as cruel as men. I wish the best for him, hopefully someday he'll meet someone who really cares about him, so he wont have to put up anymore walls. Eminem is awesome.

    General CommentNo one's touched on the meaning yet... And this is the irony, he's refering to the bitches in the song as shallow people in the world. Read the song again, and you'll see it... I got a laugh out of the comments on here though, all the women saying they love him, et cetera. He's talking about you kind of people in the song...

    Regardless, though, I like the beat and the fact that Eminem is not reserved in his songs. Anyone's who's been with a shallow or slutty girl may not feel this passionate but they can definately relate to an extent.

    General Commenti really can't understand why everyone can't lighten the hell up and laugh at this song, cause i think it's pretty funny. I am a female, but unlike many people who've already posted, listening to this song does not make me want to jump Eminem's bones, nor does it make me want to cause him bodily harm. how can you get pissed at him for speaking the truth? yeah there are women out there who are sluts and liars and only want to hook up with him because he's famous or rich or whatever. more power to him for calling them on it. does it make him sexist if its true????!!!!! Furthermore, the majority of the insults in the song are directed to the following types of women: Sluts, Hos, and Bitches. I don't fall into any of those categories, so maybe that's why i don't take it so personally.
    also, guys are liars and sluts too, we all know that. if a chick sang this song would you all be jumping on her calling her sexist?? probably not, but there's the double standard.

    tazzy:
    he said you want what you can't have, don't touch what you can't grab, end up with two back hands...
    *to back hand someone generally means to bitch slap them as far as i know, so he probably means you can't have me, don't touch me or you're gonna get smacked*
    that's what i get out of it anyway.

    Blackberry: you are so right, i thought the same thing when i saw Kill Avrils name

    desperacidea (sorry if i spelled that wrong) don't worry,: i would run the other way as fast as i could. lol

    General CommentVery easy... The girl is too messed up in the head and looking for a guy she will never find. He comes around and is the best thing she will ever get and she still acts like a dumb ho. He finally realizes this and he tells her there is no chance he can be her superman (who is the stongest and best) Sorry Susie but it is the truth.

    General CommentA lot of things in this song are funny (yeah, the anthrax lyric is "pure eminem" as someone said), but it's also a very melancholy and touching song...
    The thing I love about it (and about a lot of Eminem's music), is it isn't nearly so mindless as some of the rap you hear where they're just pure "sex fuck bitch whores ima gangsta woo drugs"
    There are actual meanings and stories behind his lyrics, and real feelings, and the sounds within the songs give his music a huge touch of personality. (This is partially in response to the person who disagrees with this music btw) Even if some people might take the music "seriously," it is unfortunately because they're too stupid to listen to it closely, and that is something that is unavoidable with any medium (and I don't think that a stable person will actually imitate what they hear in this music anyway). As far as bad treatment of women in his music, yes, it is unfortunate, but it isn't bad treatment of women, and a lot of his songs are really mocking more than anything. (And he does seem to love his daughter and care for her greatly, which implies that it is more that he's jaded, than that he's just inherently an asshole, especially what with bitterness at his mother and his wife, etc etc)
    Anyway, regarding this song specifically: it isn't just about hating on women, really. At least, I think it's more about encountering all these fake, whorish women (and perhaps he just attracts them, or it's partially because of his outlook, but nonetheless). It's basically the outpouring of a very very hurt individual who has put a barrier. The lyric "maybe I'll love you one day, maybe we'll some day grow" is very important in this, as well as the lyrics when the girls are talking about being unfazed, in which they're portrayed as trying to prove they can be trusted, even though they more likely just want to hump the guy (and again, vice versa ... eminem obviously feels the same way)
    It's just a statement of his state of mind saying that relationship(s?) have fucked him over and he's just too sick of it to care anymore - for now.

    General CommentAck, sorry, putting another post. It's because I'm sleepy and been listening to this song for like the last two hours so it keeps making me think ....

    It really makes me think of Eminem just as a person, and it makes me feel so sincerely sorry for him that I wish I could just go and be like "I WON'T PRETEND TO BE YOUR GIRLFRIEND BUT I WILL BE YOUR FRIEND AND HELP YOU WHEN YOU'RE DOWN AND JUST BE NICE AND NOT AN EVIL BITCH REALLY" and I just hope, as the person above said, that he'll find an honest person who really cares to love and be loved by

    General CommentEveryone should be able to associate with this song at some point in their lives. He's been burnt by his gf and lost all respect for women. Now he just sleeps with 'em and then tosses 'em out and keeps them at a distance
