Yellow Brick Road Lyrics - Eminem

Review The Song (9)



[Intro]
What we have to do is deal with it when these individuals are young enough. If you wish to be
saved, not in a religious sense but not to constitute what this country at times calls if or
which over. We seem to be approaching an age of the gross. We all have this idea that we should
move up from our parents station and each generation should do a little bit better.

[Verse 1- Eminem]
Come on, let's cut the bullshit enough
Let's get it started, let's start addressing this issue and open it up
Let's take this shit back to basement
And we can discuss statements thats made on this tape
And its whole origin of the music that we all know and love
The music that we all enjoy the music you all accuse me of tryna destroy
Let's rewind it to 89 when I was a boy on the east side of Detroit
Crossing 8 Mile into Warren, into hick territory
I'd like to share a story, this is my story and cant no body tell it for me
You will well inform me, I am well aware that I don't belong here
sponsored links
You've made that perfectly clear, I get my ass kicked damn near everywhere
From Bel-Air shopping center just for stopping in there
From the black side all the way to the white side
OK there's a bright side a day that I might slide
You may call it a past I call it hauling my ass
Through that patch of grass over them railroad tracks
Oh them railroad tracks, them old railroad tracks
Them good old notorious oh well known tracks

[Chorus x2]
So lets go back
Follow the yellow brick road as we go on another episode
Journey with me as I take you through this nifty little place
I once used to call home sweet home

[Verse 2- Eminem]
I roam the streets so much they call me a drifter
Sometimes I stick up a thumb just to hitch hike
Just to get picked up to get me a lift to 8 mile and Van Dyke
And steal a god damn bike from somebody's backyard
And drop it off at the park that was the half way mark
To meet Kim had to walk back to her mama's on Chalmers after dark
To sneak me in the house when I'm kicked out my mom's
Thats about the time I first met Proof with Goofy Gary on the steps
At Osbourne handing out some flyers, he was doing some talent shows
At Centerline High, I had told him to stop by and check this out sometime
He looked at me like I'm out my mind shook his head like white boys don't know how to rhyme
I spit out a line and rhymed birthday with first place
And we both had the same rhymes that sound alike
We was on the same shit that Big Daddy Kane shit with compound syllables sound combined
From that day we was down to ride somehow we knew we'd meet again somewhere down the line

[Chorus x2]
So lets go back
Follow the yellow brick road as we go on another episode
Journey with me as I take you through this nifty little place
I once used to call home sweet home

[Verse 3- Eminem]
My first year in 9th grade, can't forget that day at school
It was cool till your man MC Shan came through
And said that Puma's The Brand 'cause the clan makes troops
It was rumors but man, god damn, they flew
Must've been true because man we done banned they shoes
I had the new ones the Cool J, Ice land swayed too
And we just through them in the trash like they yesterday's news
Guess who came through next, X-clan debut
Professor X vanglorious exists in a state of red, black, and green
With a key sissies now with this being a new trend
We don't fit in crackers is out with Cactus albums
Blackness is in, African symbols and medallions
Represents black power and we ain't know what it meant
Me and my man Howard and Butter, we would go to the mall with 'em
All over our necks like we're showing 'em off not knowing at all
We was being laughed at you ain't even half black
You ain't supposed to have that homie let me grab that
And that Flavor Flave clock we gonna have to snatch that
All I remember is meeting back at Manix's basement
saying how we hate this, how racist but dope the x clan's tape is...
Which reminds me back in 89 me and Kim broke up for the first time
She was tryna two time me and there was this black girl
At our school who thought I was cool cause I rapped so she was kinda eyeing me
And oh the irony guess what her name was ain't even gonna say it plus
The same color hair as hers was and blue contacts and a pair of jugs
The bombest god damn girl in our whole school if I could pull it
Not only would I become more popular but I would be able to piss Kim off at the same time
But it backfired I was supposed to dump her but she dumped me for this black guy
And thats the last I ever seen or heard or spoke to the oh foolish pride girl
But I've heard people say they heard the tape and it ain't that bad
But it was I singled out a whole race and for that apologize
I was wrong cause no matter what color a girl is she's still a hoe

[Chorus x2]
So lets go back
Follow the yellow brick road as we go on another episode
Journey with me as I take you through this nifty little place
I once used to call home sweet home

EMIN3M is the best | Reviewer: Sohail | 3/24/09

OMG Eminem is the best rapper in this world and if you hate him you can suck his cock assholes( only if you hate eminem). Just cause his white doest mean you have to hate him. I mean this is North America we not suppose to be racism. All his song has a meaning in it. Remember Eminem is the best.



I PITY THE FOOL | Reviewer: Tony 'The Kid' Casanova | 2/5/09

Yeah, the songs ill and the flow is almost Flawless, But yo man.. The rest off this Encore album Is A Joke for real, A waste of time and money, A disgrace to Eminem cred., rep. and phenomenom. Encore sounds like my little sister's wiggle's album, and the film clips a kinda the same to. But check it, Eminem is ill, He'll go down as one of the Monsters in this game by popular demand, but with releases like encore he's slowy killing himself.

Bottom line..

I PITY THE FOOL!!



Great Song | Reviewer: Megan | 8/10/07

My Favorite One, It Was So Great, Love The PArt Where You Say "Sissy's" Sounds Cool**



Yellow Brick Road | Reviewer: Abracadabra | 6/23/07

Just like most of the songs on the encore album, when i first heard this i didn't like it. bUt after listenin to it recently it is probably the best song on the encore album. A real inspiration and an amazin song



yellow brick roads | Reviewer: eriadu | 11/11/04

dis songs great. the whole album is great. got some really funny songs....but this album is less dramatic than the eminem show. but the eminem shows the best ^_^ V



Good song | Reviewer: mikefictiti0us | 11/8/04

A good song. By the way, the guy talking at the beginning is saying "What we have to do is deal with it when these individuals are young enough, if you will, to be saved; not in a religous sense, but not to constitute what this country at times calls their “throw-away children.”". All the speech at the start of this song is from Its from the KPBS documentary "Culture of Hate", about white supremecy in Lakeside, California.
