[Intro]
All aboard, okay, next stop, my basement… haha
I'll meet you down there

[Hook]
There once was a saying that I used to say
Back in the day when I met Dre
I used to sit and goof on the phone with, my friend proof
That if I went gold, I'd go right through the roof
He said what If you went platinum, I'd just laugh at him
That's not happening, that I can't fathom
Eighty something million records worldwide later
I'm living in a house with a f*cking elevator

[Verse 1]
Haters getting mad, they done had enough of shady
You slay me, nothing you say matters enough that you shame me
Rappers try to play me, they use Hailie as a ukulele
Woopsa that a f*cking daisy
That's a no-no who even she knows dada's f*cking crazy
F*cking animal, cookoo, bananas, f*cking A B
Maybe it's because I never had a mother raise me
F*ck around and throw a baby at another baby
You may think it's cause of the way that I was brought up
But it's all caught up to me now, karmas in the waters
Every line I ever said has got me in a corner
You might think it doesn't creep upon ya, but it all does
You wouldn't listen man, I tried to warn ya when you started
Now your brain's all huanted cause of all the sh*t you thought of
Chainsaw slaughters turn your daughters into sawdust
I never thought it'd come to this, I ought to just be honest but

[Hook]

[Verse 2]
Sorry Lance, Mr. Lambert, and Aiken ain't gonna make it
They get so mad, when I call them both fag-gots
It's all these f*cking voices in my head I can't take it
Someone shut that f*cking baby up, 'for I shake it
You're standing adjacent to Jason's last slut, they're facing
Together makes 'em, a f*cking bad combination
I lashed at the doctor in my last operation
Shoved the weiner snitzel up his ass, hopped away some-
Body please stop the patient, get the cops to mase him
Homie, I'm the shizer, pass Doctor Dre some
I can't leave the game, I just can't walk away son
No not-a now, not a chance, not today son
I can't believe I leave for one breif second
And you pussys queef all over the rap game, naked
And use a leaf to clean up the crap stains, feck it
I just keep saying the same exact saying, check it

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
Elevator in my house, I'll smell ya later
I blew the f*ck up, a hamster in a microwave-I
Think about an escalator now, steps, I hate 'em
Told the neighbor step away, then I just pepper sprayed 'em
Yeah, for every time you ride down the street
Or hideout, drive by my house and beep
Like now motherf*cker, try now to sleep
Lie down motherf*cker, try countin' sheep
And you're tryna find out, why now there's beef?
Mase in your face b*tch, cry now pussy
This is my house, all nine thousand feet
So you can suck my d*ck with Amy Winehouse's teeth
Then I shove 'em in the elevator, take 'em to the top
Stand above em,just to cut the f*cking cable, let 'em drop
Walk an hour to the damn refrigerator, get a pop
While I let 'em fall all the way to the basement yelling stop!

[Hook]

[Outro]
F*cking son of a b*tch, I can't believe this sh*t
This must be all that there is, this must be it
F*ckin-A even got a bidet
Wash my ass after I sh*t with gold toilet paper
Dishwasher's so big, when I'm pissed off
I can just toss a flying saucer in it
This sh*t's awesome, yeah, f*cking elevator
Living in a house with a f*cking elevator

{*vocal scratches*}
Elevator, *chka-chk-err-chka*, elevator

Song facts

"Elevator" is a song by American rapper Eminem, featured on his 2009 album Relapse: Refill, the re-release of his album Relapse. "Elevator" was the second single released on December 15, released the same day as "Hell Breaks Loose".

The lyrics of the song struck controversy, as Eminem raps this message to former *NSYNCer Lance Bass: "Sorry Lance, Mr. Lambert and Aiken ain't gonna make it. They get so mad when I call them both fake, it's...."

Adam Lambert, the American Idol season 8 runner-up said on Twitter: "Wow Eminem mentioned me in a song? I must be doin something right," and "Even if he used the f word. Whatev."

The F-word Eminem used in this particular instance is, however, up for some debate. Though conventional wisdom says the rapper, whom many in the past have described as homophobic, would not hesitate to direct an anti-gay slur at three "out" male singers, some suggest the lyrics have him calling Lambert "fake-it".

Apparently apprised of the "clarification", Lambert later Tweeted: "Oh he says 'fake it' – my bad." However, in the CD booklet, the lyrics do say "faggots" not "fake its".
