these days lyrics – nate dogg

(feat. daz)

[(chorus) x2]
these days, you gotta be strapped
i’m already knowin ain’t n*body got my back
these days you gotta be down
who said it was easy claiming dogg pound

i believe i got good skills
we been makin music since we were kids
thats all i wanna do, for life
keepin it real until the day i die
obstacles get in my way
continue to mash and dont forget to pray
i keep my hand on my steel
because i love my life and i always will
whatever people say to me
i take it in stride i’m thinkin negro please
if you really dont know me
then you best back up, i suggest strongly
they started this dpg
until the day i d-i-e
for my l-i-f and e
no matter where i look thats all i see
and i know…

[(chorus) x2]

many n*gg*z cling to me
i think its because they see me on bet
cuz everybody knows my name
all the police think i’m serving cane
jealous n*gg*z call us out
but i dont worry long as i hear their mouths
if ever they decide to kill
you better be prepared because i know i will
i think i can guarantee
you dont wanna be standin next to me
before my final curtain call
i forsake save hen and wont be long
so if we b*mp hits in the streets
or even at some party
you n*gg*z really can’t see me
my request is that you stop trying
before i let go…

[chorus x2]

everyday, the 45 stays i’m jackin for whoever
i bustin takin now bowin down never
gotta watch my back for these coppers
as well as these n*gg*z that i kick it with
they stick you faster than these b*tches will
since i’m pimpin everybody wants my riches
and i can’t keep the don from buying weed actin everytime
i smoke constantly and can’t flinch me
from commitin the murders so i chill and puff the herb
who gots my back n*body
little john gotti’s layin n*gg*z down at the homey’s party
all be goin crazy i guess we are bein who we are
really say the n*gg* gotta be a star
i gots to get mine and if i blast then its my destiny
if i die then it was meant to be intentionally
worry stressin i’m guessin no confession
when the murder take place set yourself protection

[chorus x4 to fade]
