The Popdust Files: eminem, Skylar Grey

In “Between the Lines,” we geekily analyze the the lyrics of your favorite songs, line by line, and–BEST PART–you get to join in and do the very same! Propose your own interpretation, tell us why we JUST DON’T GET IT, or lead your very own conversation.

An innuendo-drive pop-parody, "C'mon Let Me Ride" is Skylar Grey's answer to Top 40 radio, it seems. Even the music video has the singer-songwriter mocking bikini-clad groupies and donning trailer park-inspired camouflage. She's even got Eminem riding a tricked out bike, as he contributes his verse to the song, perhaps a "thank you" to Skyler for penning his smash duet "Love The Way You Lie". Rihanna sang Grey's part on that one, Grey's on her own this time.

If you got a sweet tooth, you can taste my watermelons
If the swingset bores you, I can show you all my talents
I can wear a tan, like other bitches can’t
You can have all this, boy
And there’s only one thing that I want from you

Come on, let me ride your bicycle
It’s so fantastical, on your bicycle

We can get a little more physical
Baby, after all, it’s only natural

I feel it comin’, comin’, comin’
Ohh
I feel it runnin’, runnin’, runnin’
Ohh
Come on, let me ride your bicycle
It’s so fantastical, on your bicycle

 

EMINEM
You want to ride my bicycle
You want to ride my bike
Haha

If the world starts freezing, I can make it hot and humid
If you get a bee sting, I can suck out all the poison
I can make you last, like other bitches can’t
Have I made it clear, boy?
There’s only one thing that I want from you

EMINEM
You want to ride my bicycle
You want to ride my bike
Haha

I’m always fucking with you
Fuck you for thinking it’s true

I’m not like the sluts in this town
They make me *bleh* in my mouth

I wanna ride on your bike
Cause you’re the boy that I like
It’s like  I’m a sell out for you
But your bike’s so shiny and new

EMINEM
She’s distracted
By my reflectors, man, I can tell the chick’s attracted
My wheels spoke to hermy Schwinn is a chick magnet
Bagging up chicks like a bag of chips
With a bag of prophylactics as big as Mick Jagger lips
Shagging is something I’m a pro at, but I ain’t practicing shit
Allen Iverson of safe sex, condoms are for practice, man, I skip practice
Flip backwards while I flip this bike on its banana seat
My fantasy is to have you land where the kickstand is
Got this bitch gagging, they call me the broad killer
I’m the cousin of Godzilla, cause I spit fire and my dick is draggin’
Zig zaggin’ up the avenue, pulling these chicks in my antagonist wagon
Screamin’

Come on, let me ride your bicycle
It’s so fantastical, on your bicycle
We can get a little more physical
Baby, after all, it’s only natural
I feel it comin’, comin’, comin’
Ohh
I feel it runnin’, runnin’, runnin’

Ohh
Come on, let me ride your bicycle
It’s so fantastical, on your bicycle

EMINEM
You want to ride my bicycle
You want to ride my bike
Haha
