This is how we used to make the party start
We used to 
Mix Hen' with Bacardi Dark
And by the 
Sixth gin you're gonna probably crawl
And you'll be 
Sick then and you'll probably barf . . .
(From the song "Drug Ballad" from his 2000 album, The Marshall Mathers LP, which sold more copies in its first week of release than any other album in history.  It is the biggest-selling rap album ever, with over 10 million copies sold in the U.S. alone.  I've broken the lines to account for the pauses that Eminem places in the middle of each line -- another way to transcribe the lines would be "We used to . . . mix Hen' with Bacardi Dark."  Click on the highlighted texts to see what has to say about those lines.)
