Original

Rihanna:
I’m friends with the monster
That’s under my bed
Get along with the voices
Inside of my head
You trying to save me?
Stop holding your breath
And you think I’m crazy?
Yeah, you think I’m crazy

Eminem:
I wanted the fame
But not the cover of Newsweek
Oh well
Guess beggars can’t be choosey?
Wanted to receive attention for my music
Wanted to be left alone
In public, excuse me
Been wanting my cake
And eat it too
And wanting it both ways
Fame made me a balloon
‘Cause my ego inflated
When I blew, see
It was confusing
‘Cause all I wanted to do is
Be the Bruce Lee
Of loose leaf
Abused ink
Used it as a tool when I blew steam (wooh)
Hit the lottery
Oh wee
With what I gave up to get was bittersweet
With this like winning a huge meet
Ironic ’cause I think I’m getting so huge
I need a shrink
I’m beginning to lose sleep
One sheep, two sheep
Going cuckoo and cooky as Kool Keith
But I’m actually weirder than you think
Cause I’m

Rihanna:
I’m friends with the monster
That’s under my bed
Get along with the voices
Inside of my head
You trying to save me?
Stop holding your breath
And you think I’m crazy?
Yeah, you think I’m crazy
Well, that’s nothing
Uhuuhuuuhuuhuuhuuhuuhuu
Well, that’s nothing
Uhuuhuuhuuuhuuhuuhuhhuuhhh

Eminem:
Now I ain’t much of a poet
But I know somebody once told me
To seize the moment
And don’t squander it
‘Cause you never know
When it all could be over tomorrow
So I keep conjuring
Sometimes I wonder
Where these thoughts spawn from

(Yeah, ponder it
Do you want this?
No wonder you losing your mind
The way it wanders)

(Rihanna: uhuuhuuuhuu)
(Eminem: holarihuu)

I think you’ve been wandering off yonder
And stumbled onto Jeff VanVonderen
‘Cause I need an interventionist
To intervene
Between me and this monster
And save me from myself
And all this conflict
‘Cause the very thing that I love
Is killing me and I can’t conquer it
My OCD is cooking me in the head
Keep knocking
Nobody’s home
I’m sleepwalking
I’m just relaying
What the voice in my head’s saying
Don’t shoot the messenger
I’m just friends with the

Rihanna:
I’m friends with the monster
That’s under my bed
Get along with the voices
Inside of my head
You trying to save me?
Stop holding your breath
And you think I’m crazy?
Yeah, you think I’m crazy
Well, that’s nothing
Uhuuhuuuhuuhuuhuuhuuhuu (ohoohoo)
Well, that’s nothing
Uhuuhuuhuuuhuuhuuhuhhuuhhh

Eminem:
Call me crazy
But I have this vision:
One day that I walk
Amongst you a regular civilian
But until then
Drums get killed
And I’m coming straight at
Emcees, blood get spilled and I
Take it back to the days
That I get on a Dre track
Give every kid who got played at
Pumped up feeling and shit to say back
To the kids who played’em
I ain’t here to save the fucking children
But if one kid
Out of a hundred million
Who are going through a struggle feels
And then relates, that’s great
It’s payback
Russell Wilson falling way back
In the draft
Turn nothing into something
Still can make that
Straw in the gold chump
I will spin
Rumpelstiltskin in a haystack

Maybe I need a straight jacket
Face facts
I am nuts for real
But I’m okay with that
It’s nothing
I’m still friends with the

Rihanna:
I’m friends with the monster
That’s under my bed
Get along with the voices
Inside of my head
You trying to save me?
Stop holding your breath
And you think I’m crazy?
Yeah, you think I’m crazy

I’m friends with the monster
That’s under my bed (Eminem: get along with)
Get along with the voices
Inside of my head (Eminem: you trynna)
You trying to save me?
Stop holding your breath (Eminem: and you think)
And you think I’m crazy?
Yeah, you think I’m crazy
Well, that’s nothing
Uhuuhuuuhuuhuuhuuhuuhuu (ohoohoo)
Well, that’s nothing
Uhuuhuuhuuuhuuhuuhuhhuuhhh
