We would like for you to help us welcome a very distinguished speaker
He hails from the DPG
Would you please stand and welcome the one
The only OG Nate Dogg

Now I was about eight when I caught my first case
My mother she turned her back and bowed her head in disgrace
Now I didn't do a thing, I was just standing by
Here's a message to the youngsters today, standing by you can die

Usually, I'm in the house but today I snuck home
And when I walk down the Long Beach Streets
What a lesson they taught
While walkin' to the corner store a big mistake was made
My big homey I was walkin' with decided he needed to get paid

So he loaded up his .32 and walked right in the store
He said "Dear God, forgive me please but I can't be broke no more"
Now remember I was just eight, I thought this was a joke
What I'm sayin', I ain't playin', it was funny 'til that nigga got smoked

Can you guess who that could've been quite easily?
But it wasn't so I'm lucky to be standing right here to see

One more day, one more
One more day
One more day, one more
One more day

One more day, I'm hangin' around so I can see
Little Nate have a pocket full of money just like his daddy
Everyday, I'm sellin' big dope, it's all that I know
I ain't workin' and I got a baby so don't ask me what for

One more day, gather round everybody and listen to me
I gotta another story about the penitentiary
One more day, see while I was servin' cavi, I forgot to think
Say for instance they catch me, little Nate'll never see

Now remember I'm sellin' big dope but I'm packin' my thangs
And every corner police watchin', I ain't crazy so I'm leavin' the game
(I'm leavin' the game)
But I guess I waited too late 'cos they just caught me
Now I'm locked up, every mornin' I am prayin' for my son's safety

One more day, I'd like to thank you for watchin' over my D O double G's
And would you keep an extra eye on Nate Dogg especially
I guess, I'll just continue liftin' from day to day
And if I live to see tomorrow, thank you for one more day

One more day, one more
One more day
One more day, one more
One more day

One more day, one more
One more day
One more day, one more
One more day
