Caution: You are now annotating this song as

And I’m willing to borrow your grass, but I specialize in eating MCs
In the immortal words of LL Cool J as he would say I'm a G.O.A.T
And for those of y'all who don't know what a goat is, it means the greatest of all time
And I consider myself one of those so thank you very much, here it goes


[Verse 1]
This is the part I was worried about
Everyone thinks that my career is down the tubes
And I'm in some dusty garage inhalin' them carbon monoxide fumes
And everyone's tellin' me what I should do
And how I should come out and what to rap about

And I know I got a lot up in my medulla oblongata that I gotta get out
And I'm not sure how this is gonna come off
They're probably gonna think that I'm comin' off as cocky

Like I just started givin' a fuck what you really think about me
See, the thing about me
Is you don't really know a thing about me
Everyone's makin' a stink about me

Like there's some kind of an aura of that of the king around me
Surround me with nothin' but gangsters, killers, and bangers
And the most dangerous criminals
And I feel like I'm more comfortable around them than I do my own motherfuckin' neighbors

But see, my dream is to be remembered as one of the best when I leave
Why does it seem like
I'm not even put up in the same category as other MCs
So when Weezy says that he's better than Jay-Z
Please be that just subliminally
Means he thinks Jigga's the best and that he's
The only one up in that league, see

And it's easy just to consider me one of the greatest white rappers there is
Knowin' goddamn well that I'm one of the best motherfuckin' rappers who ever lived, period


[Hook]
I'm a G.O.A.T
And I don't mean to gloat

But I know what I know and I know what you think
And these magazines'll never put it in ink

Because how would it look if they considered me as a G.O.A.T
And for those of y'all who don't know what a G.O.A.T. is
It means the greatest of all time

And I consider myself one of those
So thank you very much, here it goes


[Verse 2]
Maybe they figure that I'm on my way out the game
So they gotta go try to find 'em a new Eminem
Or a new Shady, if they think it's gonna happen

Man, I thought I was crazy
Or maybe I could be takin' it wrong and they're tryna pay homage to me in a strange way
So let me pay homage to my fellow white competitors almost in the same way

See, you hardly ever do hear anyone even bringin' up that Paul Wall's white
Cause lyrically he doesn't pose a threat to anyone, see, he's just aight

And Bubba Sparxxx, he just won't write
Because he's so caught up in that snow white
That Timbaland can't even get him in the studio
He's so gone off that coke, right
And it's so sad, cause he's dope, right
America's next great white hope, right

So now they feel like they gotta come up with
Some corny ass white rapper show, right

And which I'm still havin' mixed feelings about
They said it'd be real, I'm just spillin' it out
There's somethin' about a white boy talking black
And runnin' around with a damn grill in his mouth

And I love when the say that Tiger Woods shit
Isn't it ironic that the best rapper's white and the best golfer's black
And I'm the one who's gotta catch all the flack offa' that

But these are the people who
Never had heard of an Eminem until 8 Mile had came out

But I had already hit middle America
Parents had all got to likin' me now
When suddenly I wasn't such a bad guy
All of the hatred for me must've died

Thought I committed career suicide so I had to turn back into the bad guy
So faggoty faggoty faggoty gays
Anatomy God made Raggedy Ann and Andy
Not Raggedy Andy and Andy and Andy

And Angelina Jolie is just another ho
And Brad is a sucka because once I fuck her
She wants to go to Somalia to
adopt another baby
You know what I say? No
You better save some of them kids from Madonna
She needs all the publicity she can get

You want a Shady
Well, you got it, man
I ain't apologizin' for shit


[Hook]

[Verse 3]
Man, I'm takin' my ball and goin' home, man
Shit is too easy
Nobody even wants to pass me the ball cause
I'M A GOAT
So don't worry, I'm out the motherfuckin' game
And y'all can sit and argue about who's the motherfuckin' best
But y'all know that
I'M A GOAT
And like I said, I'm one of the motherfuckin' best
Before you get your panties in a motherfuckin' bunch

But before I go, I'd like to say fuck you very much
To everybody who wasn't there from the start
And thank you very much to everybody who was
And y'all ain't gotta say it, just think it
Cause I know that you know that I know that you know that I know that you know that I'M A GOAT

I'm out, y'all
It's been real, peace
