97' Bonnie and Clyde A warning from Brooklyn Daisy: This song is severely psychotic and creepy.

Eminem is an American rapper who is the best selling artist of the 2000's. This song features him killing his ex-wife and dumping her body in a lake with his daughter Hailie in tow. He got the idea to write this when his ex-wife was stopping him from seeing his daughter whom he loves dearly. He was so angry with his ex-wife that he actually wanted to kill her. He was trying to be provocative, to creep you out, and it worked.

Just the two of us

Baby your da-da loves you

And I'ma always be here for you

No matter what happens

You're all I got in this world

I would never give you up for nothin

Nobody in this world is ever gonna keep you away from me

I love you

~~~This is where we see him declaring his love for his daughter and saying how no one can take her from him, all that lovely dad stuff.~~~

C'mon Hai-Hai, we goin to the beach

Grab a couple of toys and let da-da strap you in the car seat

Oh where's mama? She's takin a little nap in the trunk

Oh that smell? Da-da musta runned over a skunk

~~~This is dark humor. He's making fun of his victim to a rodent that smells horrible. And saying that mama's in the truck lets the listener know something is off.~~~

Now I know what you're thinkin - it's kind of late to go swimmin

But you know your 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 with da-da's toy knife, honey, let go of it

~~~It's plan as day that he's gonna take them to the lake to get rid of the body, and he's blaming his victim saying that what he did isn't as near as crazy as the things she normally does. This is a secret that she listener and the singer share. Note that the knife is very important.~~~

And don't look so upset, why you actin bashful?

Don't you want to help da-da build a sand castle?

And mama said she wants to show how far she can float

And don't worry about that little boo-boo on her throat

~~~Well, you can guess what he did to his ex wife, he sliced her throat and then decided to go to the lake to dump her body and then to calm his daughter down they'll play in the sand.~~~

It's just a little scratch - it don't hurt, her was eating

Dinner while you were sleepin and spilled ketchup on her shirt

Mama's messy isn't she? We'll let her wash off in the water

And me and you can play by ourselves, can't we?

~~~He told his daughter that it was just ketchup on her mother's shirt because she's too young to understand what really happened and it shows the truth of his criminal intentions and as her body floats away.~~~

Just the two of us...

And when we ride!

Just the two of us...

Just you and I!

~~~Just him and his daughter, no mother to interrupt them or take his daughter away from him.~~~

See honey.. there's a place called heaven and a place called hell

A place 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

~~~We obviously know he's not going to heaven and he doesn't want another man to be his daughter's father and he doesn't want to share her with someone else.~~~

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 ya

But for now we'll just say mama was real real bad

~~~In his mind he feels like he's a hero by killing his daughters mother and saving her from her having a brother and a step dad.

She was bein' mean to dad and made him real real mad

But I still feel sad that I put her on time-out

Sit back in your chair honey, quit trying to climb out

I told you it's okay HaiHai, want to ba-ba?

Take a night-night? Nan-a-boo, goo-goo ga-ga?

Her make goo-goo ca-ca? Da-da change your dia-dee

Clean the baby up so her can take a nighty-nighty

Your dad'll wake her up as soon as we get to the water

Ninety-seven Bonnie and Clyde, me and my daughter

~~~Despite just murdering his ex-wife, he still cares deeply about his daughter and her well being.~~~

And when we ride!

Just the two of us... [Repeat: x2]

Just you and I!

Wake up sweepy head we're here, before we pway

We're gonna take mama for a wittle walk along the pier

Baby, don't cry honey, don't get the wrong idea

Mama's too sleepy to hear you screaming in her ear

~~~His daughter can sense something is wrong with her mother but her father reassures her that her mama is just sleeping.~~~

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 want to help da-da tie a rope around this rock?

We'll tie it to her footsie then we'll roll her off the dock

~~~This is what upsets me. He's asking his toddler daughter to get ride of her mothers corpse! This part is supposed to shock the listener and it worked.~~~

Ready now, here we go, on the count of free..

One.. two.. free.. WHEEEEEE!

There goes mama, spwashin in the wa-ta

No more fightin wit dad, no more restraining order

~~~He doesn't find the murder a crime but a positive thing and that the "hero" has concord the villain. And in the song you hear splashing of her going into the water.~~~

No more step-da-da, no more new brother

Blow her kisses bye-bye, tell mama you love her (mommy!)

Now we'll go play in the sand, build a castle and junk

But first, just help dad with two more things out the trunk

~~~He's abusing his daughters innocent to collaborate with him and he's getting rid of more things from the crime.~~~

Just the two of us...

And when we ride!

Just the two of us...

Just you and I!

Just me and you baby

Is all we need in this world

Just me and you

Your da-da will always be there for you

Your da-da's always gonna love you

Remember that

If you ever need me I will always be here for you

If you ever need anything, just ASK

Da-da will be right there

Your da-da loves you

I love you baby

~~~Again, it's showing how much he loves his daughter. Yeah, what kind of daughter wouldn't want their dad killing their mom for them?~~~
