"Bagpipes From Baghdad" as written by Mike Elizondo, Trevor Lawrence Jr., Andre Young, Mark Batson, Dawaun Parker, Sean Cruse and Marshall B Iii Mathers....
Oh! It's music to my ears, oh man!
How can I describe, the way I feel?
Fuckin' great man! Okay, let me see
How could I begin

Locked in Mariah's wine cellar all I had for lunch
Was red wine, more red wine, and Captain Crunch
Red wine for breakfast and for brunch
And to soak it up an in between snack, crackers to munch
Mariah, what's ever happened to us, why did we have to break up?
All I asked for was a glass of punch
You see, I never really ask for much
I can't imagine what's going through your mind after such
A nasty breakup with that Latin hunk
Luis Miguel, Nick Cannon better back the fuck up
I'm not playin', I want to bag ya punk
This is Hello Kitty bedspread satin funk
Mixed with Egyptian, with a little rappin' pump
Zappin Eric Clapton, Shaft, Frank Zappa crunk
And yeah baby, I want another crack at ya
You can beat me with any spatula that ya want
I mean I really want you bad, you cunt
Nick you had your fun
I've come to kick you in your sack of junk
Man I could use a fresh batch of blood
So prepare your vernacular for Dracula acupuncture

Bagpipes from Baghdad
When will it ever cease, for Pete's sakes he's crazy, to say the least
Bagpipes from Baghdad
What's going through my mind half the time, when I rhyme, while blowing on my
Bagpipes from Baghdad
Somebody turn the vacancy sign on, 'cause I'm gone, blowing on my
Bagpipes from Baghdad
I run the streets and act like a madman, holding a Glad bag

You can be a permanent fixture
In my lyrical mixture
I'm the miracle whip trickster
My signature sound, when the tube of lipstick's around
I'm bound to put it on in an instant, wow
Man what an ensemble, what an assortment of pharma
Ceuticals, it's beautiful, pill dust in my palm, my
Cuticles get residue just from touching the bottle
Never knew I could remind me so much of my mama
I'll cut you like Dahmer, pull a butcher knife on ya
The size of a sword boy, I'm like a fuckin' Red Sonia
Get it stuck in your cornea
Nice knowin ya Norman
You're so fuckin' annoyin
Drop the shovel boy, you don't know what the fuck ya doin'
I ain't playin' no fuckin' more
Nick Cannon you prick, I wish you luck with the fuckin' whore
Every minute there's a sucker born
Snuck up on Malachai and made the motherfucker suck on a shuck of corn
Shuck of, shuck of corn, shuck of corn
Hit Jason in the face with a hockey puck and told him it's fuckin' on
What the fuck are you doin'
You're runnin' over the snow blower
With the lawnmower, blow on your
Bagpipes from Baghdad

Bagpipes from Baghdad
When will it ever cease, for Pete's sakes he's crazy, to say the least
Bagpipes from Baghdad
What's going through my mind half the time, when I rhyme, while blowing on my
Bagpipes from Baghdad
Somebody turn the vacancy sign on, 'cause I'm gone, blowing on my
Bagpipes from Baghdad
I run the streets and act like a madman, holding a Glad bag

In the bed with two brain dead lesbian vegetables
I bet you they become heterosexual
Nothing will stop me from molesting you
Titty fucking you 'til your breast nipple
Flesh, tickles my testicles
Is what they said to the two conjoined twins
How's it going girlfriends, you need a boyfriend?
You need some ointment, just make an appointment
Who's gonna see the doctor first, we'll do a coin flip
I just got my one year sobriety coin chip
When the bad get going, how bad does the going get
Baby you shouldn't have any trouble rubbing groins wit
Each other, especially when you're joined at the hip
I'm going to get the needle and thread from the sewing kit
An attempt to seperate 'em and stitch em back at the loin shit
Lured the little boy with the chocolate Chips Ahoy chip
Cookie, lookie even took me a polaroid, bitch

Bagpipes from Baghdad
When will it ever cease, for Pete's sakes he's crazy, to say the least
Bagpipes from Baghdad
What's going through my mind half the time, when I rhyme, while blowing on my
Bagpipes from Baghdad
Somebody turn the vacancy sign on, 'cause I'm gone, blowing on my
Bagpipes from Baghdad
I run the streets and act like a madman, holding a Glad bag of bagpipes from Baghdad

    General CommentThis song was written for a few reaons including making fun of the autotuner, but mostly to provoke Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. Eminem and Mariah Carey had a very very brief dating stint, and apparently she wouldnt let him "get past second base". Upon hearing this song cannon replied on his blog. "A mediocre (at best) Eminem record that sounds like it was written in 2001," Cannon blogged. "At first, I thought it was old material that had been dug up from when dude 'fantasized' about having a pretend fling with Mariah. ... But all of a sudden I hear my name in the verse! My first reaction was like, 'This is his new sh--? Wow, that's too bad.' "

    Cannon said that Eminem's insults amounted to "racist bigotry." "She has had enough difficulty in her life dealing with racial and ethnicity issues," he wrote. "Believe it or not, Mariah is the same racial mixture as our beloved president, Barack Obama. (Black Father + White Mother= BLACK)

    "Maybe I'm going too far, but I thought we got past the days where white men could spew vulgar obscenities at our beautiful queens and get away with it," Cannon continued. "What's next? Are we going to let this trash say something horrible about our lovely first lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama? Or would Marshall have talked sideways out of his neck like this about Oprah Winfrey? This act of racist bigotry cannot go unnoticed. Calling my wife a 'c---' and a 'whore' is way worse than anything Don Imus could have ever said. So trust, repercussions will be served. Anybody got Al Sharpton's number?! LOL Let's not forget about Eminem's amateur mixtape rants of calling African Americans 'ni----' and how he hates 'black bi---es.' "

    The actor basically vowed revenge on Slim Shady, joking that he would begin rapping again and threatening comedic retribution.

    "So, Miss Marshall, I'm going to make you wish you never spoke my name and regret the ungodly things you said about my wife," Cannon continued. "This is going to be fun! It's however you want it! Just remember, you did this to yourself! Your legacy has now been tainted from this day forth! You will now be known as the rapper who lost to corny-ass Nick Cannon!"


    Eminem acheived exactly what he wanted to do with this and most of his songs...provoke controversy. Sorry to say Nick you played right into his hands, and Eminem has more talent in his pinky finger than you will ever have. Favorite song on the CD, love the beat.

    General Commentalso, it's not "just beautiful, build us to my karma"
    it's "this beautiful pill does to my karma"

    hint, if the lyrics you're transcribing DON'T MAKE SENSE, they're probably wrong.

    General CommentAlso, that Nick Cannon "retaliation" was painful. If you're going to even dignify a string of horrible insults slung at your from an Eminem song with a response, you'd better come out swinging, not giggling like a little school girl and threatening to start a rap battle with one of the sickest lyrical minds in the business. Especially if you're the rap game equivalent of a retarded mickey mouse club member.

    General Commentit's not assortment of armor Ceuticals
    it's "assortment of pharmaceuticals"

    General Commentalso, "The size of a sword, boy, I'm like the fuckin' ruts on you"
    again, lyrics that make no sense... probably not right.
    it's actually "red sonja" ... see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    General Commenthis "middle eastern raps" aren't my favorites (ass like that) but once again, eminem has earned the right to do whatever he wants. the second auto-tuning on the album reminds me of the backing vocals from "amityville" but autotuned. i'm not sure whether he references real serial killers or serial killers from horror movies more often on this album.

    General CommentI just wanted to add that I think he is making fun of Lil Wayne and anybody else who uses that auto tune voice changing effect. For the past 2 years just about everybody uses that like its cool or something. It sounds TERRIBLE!!

    I noticed that the HUMMMMMDEEEEEEEEE LEEE HAAAAAAA Eminem says at the end sounds exactly like Lil Wayne.

    what do you think?

    my fav tune easy
