Eminem – Mockingbird

Yeah
I know sometimes things may not always make sense to you right now
But hey, what daddy always tell you?
Straighten up little soldier
Stiffen up that upper lip
What you crying about?
You got me

Hailie I know you miss your mom and I know you miss your dad
Well I’m gone but I’m trying to give you the life that I never had
I can see you’re sad, even when you smile, even when you laugh
I can see it in your eyes, deep inside you want to cry
Cause you’re scared, I ain’t there?
Daddy’s with you in your prayers
No more crying, wipe them tears
Daddy’s here, no more nightmares
We gon’ pull together through it, we gon’ do it
Laney uncles crazy, ain’t he?
Yeah but he loves you girl and you better know it
We’re all we got in this world
When it spins, when it swirls
When it whirls, when it twirls
Two little beautiful girls
Lookin’ puzzled, in a daze
I know it’s confusing you
Daddy’s always on the move, mamma’s always on the news
I try to keep you sheltered from it but somehow it seems
The harder that I try to do that, the more it backfires on me
All the things growing up his daddy that he had to see
Daddy don’t want you to see but you see just as much as he did
We did not plan it to be this way, your mother and me
But things have gotten so bad between us
I don’t see us ever being together ever again
Like we used to be when we was teenagers
But then of course everything always happens for a reason
I guess it was never meant to be
But it’s just something we have no control over and that’s what destiny is
But no more worries, rest your head and go to sleep
Maybe one day we’ll wake up and this will all just be a dream

[Chorus]
Now hush little baby, don’t you cry
Everything’s gonna be alright
Stiffen that upper lip up little lady, I told ya
Daddy’s here to hold ya through the night
I know mommy’s not here right now and we don’t know why
We feel how we feel inside
It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby
But I promise momma’s gon’ be alright

It’s funny
I remember back one year when daddy had no money
Mommy wrapped the Christmas presents up
And stuck ‘em under the tree and said some of ‘em were from me
Cause daddy couldn’t buy ‘em
I’ll never forget that Christmas I sat up the whole night crying
Cause daddy felt like a bum, see daddy had a job
But his job was to keep the food on the table for you and mom
And at the time every house that we lived in
Either kept getting broken into and robbed
Or shot up on the block and your mom was saving money for you in a jar
Tryna start a piggy bank for you so you could go to college
Almost had a thousand dollars till someone broke in and stole it
And I know it hurt so bad it broke your momma’s heart
And it seemed like everything was just startin’ to fall apart
Mom and dad was arguin’ a lot so momma moved back
On the Chalmers in the flat one bedroom apartment
And dad moved back to the other side of 8 Mile on Novara
And that’s when daddy went to California with his CD and met Dr. Dre
And flew you and momma out to see me
But daddy had to work, you and momma had to leave me
Then you started seeing daddy on the T.V. and momma didn’t like it
And you and Laney were to young to understand it
Papa was a rollin’ stone, momma developed a habit
And it all happened too fast for either one of us to grab it
I’m just sorry you were there and had to witness it first hand
Cause all I ever wanted to do was just make you proud
Now I’m sitting in this empty house, just reminiscing
Lookin’ at your baby pictures, it just trips me out
To see how much you both have grown, it’s almost like you’re sisters now
Wow, guess you pretty mature and daddy’s still here
Laney I’m talkin’ to you too, daddy’s still here
I like the sound of that, yeah
It’s got a ring to it don’t it?
Shh, momma’s only gone for the moment

[Chorus]

And if you ask me too
Daddy’s gonna buy you a mockingbird
I’mma give you the world
I’mma buy a diamond ring for you
I’mma sing for you
I’ll do anything for you to see you smile
And if that mockingbird don’t sing and that ring don’t shine
I’mma break that birdies neck
I’ll go back to the jeweler who sold it to ya
And make him eat every carat don’t fu*k with dad (haha)

Prevod na srpski

Američki drozd

Da
Znam da ponekad stvari nemaju smisla
Ali hej, šta ti tata uvek govori?
Ispravi se vojniče mali
Stisni zube
Zašto plačeš?
Imaš mene

Hejli, znam da ti nedostaje mama i znam da ti nedostaje tata
E pa, mene nema ali trudim se da ti pružim život kakav ja nisam imao
Vidim da si tužna, čak i kad se smešiš, čak i kad se smeješ
Vidim ti u očima, duboko u sebi ti bi plakala
Zato što se bojiš, ja nisam tamo?
Tata je s tobom u tvojim molitvama
Nema više plakanja, obriši suze
Tata je tu, nema više noćnih mora
Zajedno ćemo kroz to proći, uspećemo
Lejni, teča je lud, jel da?
Da, ali on tebe devojčice voli i treba to da znaš
Na ovom svetu samo jedni druge imamo
Kad se vrti, kad se kovitla
Dve male lepe devojčice
Izgledaju zbunjeno, ošamućeno
Znam da vas zbunjuje
Tata je stalno u pokretu, mama je stalno na vestima
Trudim se da vas od toga zaštitim, ali izgleda da
Što se više trudim, više mi se obija o glavu
Sve ono što je tata morao da vidi dok je odrastao
Tata ne želi da vi vidite, ali i vi vidite baš onoliko kao i on
Nismo hteli da ovako ispadne, vaša mama i ja
Ali stvari između nas postale su tako loše
Da mislim da nikad više nećemo biti zajedno
onako kao kad smo bili tinejdžeri
Ali, naravno, sve ima svoje razloge
Valjda nam nije bilo suđeno
I to je jednostavno nešto što ne možemo da kontrolišemo a to je sudbina
Ali nema brige, odmorite svoje glavice i idite na spavanje
Možda ćemo se jednog dana probuditi i sve ovo biće samo san

[Refren]
Sada pst bebice, ne plači
Sve će biti u redu
Stisni zube mala damo, rekao sam ti
Tata je tu da te čuva noću
Znam da mama sada nije ovde i ne znamo zašto
Se osećamo ovako
Možda deluje malo blesavo, lepotice
Ali obećavam da će mama biti dobro

Čudno…
Sećam se kad jedne godine tata nije imao para
Mama je upakovala božićne poklone
I nabila ih pod jelku i izjavila da su neki od njih od mene
Jer tata nije mogao da ih kupi
Nikad neću zaboraviti taj Božić kada sam čitavu noć preplakao
Zato što se tata osećao kao propalica, znaš, tata je imao posao
Ali njegov posao je bio da obezbedi hranu za tebe i mamu
A tada su u svaku kuću u kojoj smo živeli
Ili provaljivali i pljačkali je
Ili su je pucnjima rešetali a tvoja mama je štedela za tebe u jednoj teglici
Pokušavajući da puni kasicu prasicu za tebe, kako bi mogla ići na koledž
Skoro je skupila hiljadu dolara kada je neko provalio i ukrao ih
I znam da ju je to jako povredilo, slomilo je tvojoj mami srce
I činilo se kao da sve ide dođavola
Mama i tata su se puno svađali tako da se mama odselila nazad
u Chalmers u jednosoban stan
a tata se vratio na drugu stranu puta 8 Mile u Novara ulici
I tada je tata otišao u Kaliforniju sa svojim CD-om i upoznao Dr.Dre-a
I platio avionske karte tebi i mami da dođete da me vidite
Ali tata je morao da radi, ti i mama morale ste da me ostavite
Onda si počela da viđaš tatu na TV-u a mami se to nije dopadalo
A ti i Lejni ste bile previše male da bi razumele
Tata je stalno bio na putu, mama je stvorila jednu naviku
I sve se to prebrzo dogodilo da bi bilo koje od nas to shvatilo
Samo mi je žao što ste bile tamo i morale sve to da gledate
Jer, sve što sam ikad želeo je da se sa mnom ponosiš
Sada sedim u ovoj praznoj kući, samo se prisećam
Gledam vaše slike kad ste bile bebe, od toga samo poludim
Kad vidim koliko ste obe narasle, skoro kao da ste sestre
Izgleda da ste poprilično odrasle a tata je još tu
Lejni, to se i na tebe odnosi, tata je još tu
Sviđa mi se kako to zvuči, da
Nekako dobro zvuči, zar ne?
Psst, mama je samo na trenutak izašla

[Refren]

I, ako i mene pitate
Tata će ti kupiti ptičicu
Daću ti čitav svet
Kupiću ti dijamantski prsten
Pevaću za tebe
Učiniću sve što je potrebno da bi mi se nasmešila
I ako ta ptičica ne bude pevala a taj prsten ne bude blistao
Ima da slomijem toj ptičurini vrat
Vratiću se kod zlatara koji ti je to prodao
I naterati ga da pojede svaki karat, nek se ne za*ebava s tatom (haha)
