How Long Will They Mourn Me? Lyrics

by Thug Life

All my homies drinkin' liquor, tears in everybody's eyez
Niggaz cry to mourn a homies homicide
But I can't cry instead I'm just a shoulda
Damn, why'd they take another soldier?

I load my clip before my eyez blurry
Don't worry I'll get them suckas back
Before your buried, shit, retaliate and pull a 187
The real niggaz get to go to heaven

How long will they mourn me? Bury me a motherfucking G
Bitch, don't wanna die then don't fuck wit me
Its kinda hard to be optimistic
When your homie's lying dead on the pavement twisted

Ya'll don't hear me though, I'm trying hard to make ammends
When I'm losing all my mothafucking friends
Damn, they shoulda shot me when I was born
Now I'm trapped in the mothafucking storm

How long will they mourn me?
(I wish it woulda been another)
How long will they mourn me?
(How long will they mourn my brotha)

How long will they mourn me?
(I wish it woulda been another)
How long will they mourn me?
(How long will they mourn my brotha)

Every mothafucking day, homie
You stayed down when the other niggaz didn't know me
From my heart to the trigga, you my fuckin' nigga
And things won't be the same without ya, nigga

I remember kicking back you wanted a Lac
And going half on a mothafuckin' hundred sack
Smokin blunt after blunt with steady drinkin
Hung around so much, you knew what I was thinkin'

Tell me Lord why you take big Kato?
So confused not knowing which way to go
I'm going crazy runnin' outta fuckin' time
I can't take it, I'm losing my fucking mind

So day after day, ride after ride
We'll hook up on the other side
Watch over your family and your newborn
Till we meet again, homie, how long will they mourn me?

How long will they mourn me?
(I wish it woulda been another)
How long will they mourn me?
(How long will they mourn my brotha)

Damn, a nigga tired of feeling sad
I'm tired of putting in work
I'm tired of crying while watching my homies leave the earth
I know soon one day I'll be in the dirt

And my people's be mourning
When thay get a call from the coroner
All niggaz can say is that's fucked up
And get tossed up, reminiscing how we grew up

Rest and love to my nigga Kato
See you in the crossroads real soon
For now let me pour out some brew
I'll be always thinkin of ya homie
Rest in peace, how long will they mourn me?

Ya know life's a fuckin' trip and everybody gotta go
But why the fuck it have to be my nigga Kato
Another nigga fell victim to the chrome
Its enough to make ya crazy, its fuckin' with my dome

Ya only live once on this earth
A nigga had it bad since the day of mothafuckin' birth
But niggas say they down and they always be my homie
But when a nigga gone, how long will they mourn me?

How long will they mourn me?
(I wish it woulda been another)
How long will they mourn me?
(How long will they mourn my brotha)
