That smell must be from the skunk daddy ran over.

(The smell of the mother's corpse.)

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

I know you are wondering, it is late to go out swimming

But you know your mama, she's one of those type of women

But you know who your mother is, she's that type of lady

That do crazy things, and if she don't get her way, she'll throw a fit

Who will do crazy things if she does not get what she wants, she'll throw a fit

Don't play with da-da's toy knife, honey, let go of it (no!)

And ignore her scratch on her throat

(HER SLIT THROAT!)

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

It is just a tiny scratch, it doesn't hurt her, she was eating

Eminem using refrain when singing the chorus of the song because he repeats him saying "Just the two of us" to his daughter.

The overall theme of this balled is that husband and wife love may never last but the love of a father towards his daughter will always remain.
