Police voice:
Attention all units, attention all units
We have an All Points Bulletin out on a man with green hair
I repeat, we have an APB on a man with green hair
He's armed with a knife, I repeat, he's armed with a knife
Proceed with caution, watch your back fella's
He could be coming at your girlfriend next

Verse 1:
There's a joker on the loose from the psychiatric ward
His face is up on the bulletin board with a reward
He'll stab you with a sword don't be fooled by his charm
He's probably armed with intent to do bodily harm
Ring the alarm, look for a man with green hair
Check at your girl's house, he was last seen there
He's has a mean stare but usually crack's jokes
Good luck on your mission and guard your backs folks

Chorus:
Come here you fuckin backstabber
why I oughta, be the bitch nigga from the hood, haha
come here you fuckin backstabber
Stay away from him he ain't no good

Verse 2:
We got the walkie-talkies to keep us all informed
Suited up head to toe in detective uniforms
Our unit storms in, we split the ghetto in sectors
Locking down every block and put up metal detectors
Protectors and be sure that you stand close
Watch each others backs and guard your command post
And most of all be advised that he's wise
He could be disguised as one of your very own guys

Chorus:
Come here you fuckin backstabber
why I oughta, be the bitch nigga from the hood, haha
come here you fuckin backstabber
Stay away from him he ain't no good

Verse 3:
I'm on a solo mission to find him personally
To settle the score and beat then him mercifully
For what he first did to me
It's sure to be the last
Following footprints with a magnifying glass
To drag his lying ass back to his padded cell
I'm mad as hell, on the trail of the tattle tail
I heard a yell the voice sounded familiar
"Give me your girlfriend or I'm gonna kill ya"

Chorus:
Come here you fuckin backstabber
why I oughta, be the bitch nigga from the hood, haha
come here you fuckin backstabber
Stay away from him he ain't no good

Verse 4:
I followed the voice that led down a flight of steps
Sneezing at dust, and swinging at the spider-webs
Inside the depths of his basement
I taste lint in my mouth, then the lights in the place… went!
I saw my life flash in front of my eyes
I felt a butcher knife slash at one of my thighs
None of my guys knew where I'm at I was doomed
Then I remembered the flashlight in my costume

Chorus:
Come here you fuckin backstabber
why I oughta, be the bitch nigga from the hood, haha
come here you fuckin backstabber
Stay away from him he ain't no good

Verse 5:
Dealing with backstabber's there was one thing I learned
They're only powerful when you got your back turned
I yearned for the day that we finally met again
So I can give him a taste of his own medicine
He shed his skin, then he promised to come clean
I took his butcher knife and jabbed it into his spleen
Cut him at the seam then dragged the fella home
Beating him over the head with the telephone

Police voice:
Attention all cars, attention all cars
Unit 313 has apprehended the suspect
He's going back to the crazy home, I repeat
He's going back to the crazy home, how about that?

Chorus:
Come here you fuckin backstabber
why I oughta, be the bitch nigga from the hood, haha
come here you fuckin backstabber
Stay away from him he ain't no good

    General CommentThe description of the guy who kills people makes me think of the Joker from Batman comics.

    General CommentI usualy dont like Eminem..but after my past three weeks this song seems very good. backstabbers suck! and my best freind is one. this song is about a guy who takes a bunch of other guys girls and pretends like he is friends with them and then becomes even more of a backstabber. :I make you think you're a best friend then
    Why I oughtta
    Hit a bitch snake from the back, I make you think you're a best friend then
    Why I oughtta
    Stay away from him he ain't no good!

    General Commentthis song reminds me of the one short story i read in english class 2 years ago called "the inspiration of Mr. Budd" where this barber dyes this murderer's hair green so the police can more easily identify him, i believe thats what the beginning police radio thing is all about, but i could be mistaken
