The Watcher Lyrics

 

The Watcher - Dr. Dre

Things just ain't the same for gangsters

Times is changin, young niggaz is agin

Becomin O.G.'s in the game and changing

To make way for these new names and faces but

The strangest things can happen from rappin

When, niggaz get wrapped up in image and actin

Niggaz get capped up and wrapped in plastic

And zipped up in bags when it happens, that's it

I've seen em come, I've watched em go

Watched em rise, witnessed it and watched them blow

Watched em all blossom and watched em grow

Watched the lawsuits when they lost the dough

Best friends and money? I lost them both

Went and visisted niggaz in the hospital

And saw the same sh*t all across the globe

I just sit back and watch the show (the watcher)

Cause everywhere that I go

Ain't the same as befo' (the watcher)

People I used to know

Just don't know me no mo' (the watcher)

But everywhere that I go

I got people I know (the watcher)

 

Who got people they know

So I suggest you lay low (the watcher)

I moved out of the hood for good - you blame me?

Niggaz aim angry at niggaz they can't be

But niggaz can't hit niggaz they can't see

I'm out of sight, now I'm out of they dang reach

 

How would you feel if niggaz wanted you killed?

You'd probably move to a new house on a new hill

And choose a new spot if niggaz wanted you shot

I ain't a thug - how much Tupac in you you got?

I ain't no b**ch neither - it's either my life

Or yo' life and I ain't leavin - I like breathin

 

Cause ni**a we can go round for round

Clip for clip, sh*t fo'pound for pound

Ni**a if you really wanna take it there we can

Just remember that you f**kin with a family man

I got a lot more to lose than you, remember that

When you wanna come and fill these shoes (the watcher)

Everywhere that I go

Ain't the same as before

People I used to know

Just don't know me no more(The watcher)

But everywhere that I go

I got people I know

Who got people they know

So I suggest you lay low (I watch)

 

Things just ain't the same for gangstas

Cops is anxious to put niggaz in handcuffs

They wanna hang us, see us dead or enslave us

Keep us trapped in the same place we raised in

Then they wonder why we act so outrageous

Run around stressed out and pull out gauges

Cause everytime you let the animal out cages

It's dangerous, to people who look like strangers

But now we got a new era of gangsters

Hustlers and youngsters livin amongst us

Lookin at us, now callin us bustaz

Can't help but reminisce back when it was us

 

Ni**a we started this gangsta sh*t!

And this the motherf**kin thanks I get?

It's funny how time fly

I'm just havin fun, just watchin it fly by (the watcher)

Everywhere that I go

Ain't the same as before

People I used to know

Just don't know me no more

But everywhere that I go

I got people I know

Who got people they know

So I suggest you lay low

 

The watcher

 

I watch

 

The watcher
