baby, your da-da loves you
and i'm always gonna be here for you
no matter what happened
you're all i got in this world
i'd never give you up for nothing
nobody in this world is ever gonna keep you from me
i love you

come on, hey hey, we going to the beach
grab a couple of toys, and let da-da strap you in the car seat
where's mama? she's taking a little nap in the trunk
oh that smell; da-da musta runned over a skunk
now i know what you're thinking; it's kinda late to go swimming
but you know you're mama
she's one of those type of women, that do crazy things
and if she don't get her way, she'll throw a fit
don't play wit da-da's toy knife honey, let go of it
now don't look so upset, why you acting bashful
don't you wanna help da-da build a sand castle
and mama said she wants to show you how far she can float
don't worry about that little boo-boo on her throat
it's just a little scratch, it don't hurt
her was eating dinner while you were sweepin'
spilt ketchup on her shirt
mama's messy isn't she
we'll let her wash off in the water
and me and you can pway by ourselves, can't we

just the two of us, just the two of us
just the two of us
just the two of us

see honey, there's a place called heaven and a place called hell
there's a placed called prison and a place called jail
and da-da's probably on his way to all of 'em, except one
cause mama's got a new husband, and a stepson
and you don't want a brother do ya
maybe when you're old enough to understand a little better
i'll explain it to you
but for now, we'll just say mama was real real bad
she was being mean to dad, and made him real real mad
but i still feel sad that i put her on timeout
sit back in your chair, honey, quit trying to climb out
i told you it's ok, hey hey, you wanna bah-bah
take a night-night
na-na-goo-goo gah-gah
or make coo-coo-cocka
da'll change your di-ey
clean the baby up so i can take a nighty-nighty
your da'll wake her up as soon as we get to the water
97' bonnie & clyde, me and my daughter
me and my daughter

me and my daughter

just the two of us, just the two of us
just the two of us
just the two of us

wake up sweepy head, we're here
before we pway
we gonna take mommy for a wittle walk out on the pier
baby don't cry honey, don't get the wrong idea
mama's too sweepy to hear you screaming in her ear
that's why you can't get her to wake
but don't worry
da-da made a nice bed for mommy at the bottom of the lake
here, you wanna help da-da tie a rope around this rock
we'll tie it to her footsy, then we'll roll her off the dock
ready now, here we go, on the count of phree
1, 2, phree, weeeeeeee
there goes mama, spwashing in the water
no more fighting wit dad
no more restraining order
no more step da-da
no more brother
blow her kisses buh-bye
tell mommy you love her
now we'll go play in the sand, build a sand castle and junk
but first, just help dad with two more things out of the trunk

just. the. two. of. us...

    General CommentI just have to relate an experience - you all think this song is creepy when you hear it come up on your cd, but picture this: I was recently on an airplane, and I put on my ipod to relax and snooze. I woke up, startled and freaked out by the creepish whispering in my ears, and was totally shocked at being woken by this song. Super duper creepy cubed...

    General CommentWell, I finally brought myself to listen to Eminem's version of this song, and all I can say is... wow. His voice is so disconnected from what's happening, it's like he really is just singing about typical rap things. He could just as easily be singing about money and cars and wouldn't have to change his tone at all.
    Tori's in comparison is ... I don't know, it's just so different. She gave the mother a voice, but I think what she did even more is help the listener understand the seriousness and insanity of the story being told. Before I heard the Eminem version, I would listen to Tori's, and think that, yes, that is exactly how a man, especially, a man who would kill his wife, would sound. Not the voice and obviously not the pitch, but the intonation, just the very WAY Tori speaks in that song. Eminem does sound disconnected, but not in the denying way a man who killed his child's mother would. He just sounds like "I'm rapping. It means nothing." Now that I have heard him do this song, I can really see just how Tori manipulated it, and she did it perfectly. She really revealed this song for what it was, horrible and inappropriate, not to be taken lightly because it's JUST a song.

    General CommentI think she just wanted to make people realize the horrible things eminem said in this song... She decided to give the dead mother a voice and, well, the result is bone-chilling.

    General Commenteminem is a master of manipulating his own persona...he puts on a show using people from his life as the cast...so the only non-fictional part of this song is that he does have a daughter, and he did have a wife

    General Commentif you look at the comments posted on eminem's version of this song...well lets just say it gives you the opportunity to compare eminem and tori fans. I agree, I always have to skip it on my cd player also.

    General CommentEminem is kinda disturbed and i think Tori did a good job at showing us how messed up he is by giving the dead mother a voice, like marie-p said (which was said well :) , that what i was trying to say, but she already did)
    yeah...
