How long will they mourn me
Yeah! This for my n***a Kato
It's still on n***a
Thug Life, Thugs for life
Ha Ha yeah, how long will they mourn me
Yeah n***a
2Pac in this m*******a

[Tupac]

All my homies drinking liquor
Tears in everybody's eyes
N****s cried to mourn a homies homicide
But I can't cry
Instead I'm just a shoulder
Damn, why they take another soldier
I load my clip before my eyes blurry, don't worry
I'll get them suckas back before your buried (shit)
Retaliate and pull a 187
Do real n****s get to go to heaven?
How long will they mourn me, bury me a muthafuckin 'g'
B***h don't wanna die
Then don't f**k with me
It's kinda hard to be optimistic
When your homies lying dead on the pavement twisted
Y'all don't hear me doe, I'm trying hard to make amends
But I'm losing all my muthafuckin friends (damn)
They should've shot me when I was born
Now I'm trapped in the muthafuckin' storm
How long will they mourn me?

[Chorus:]

I wish it would have been another
How long will they mourn me
How long will they mourn my brother
(Got them n****s all dead and shit)
How long will they mourn me
I wish it would have been another
(Nate Dogg)
How long will they mourn me
How long will they mourn my brother
(Gotta keep this s**t goin' on, Yo Syke)

[Syke]

How long will they mourn me
Every muthafuckin' day homie
You stayed down when tha other n****s didn't know me
From my heart to the trigga you my fu***n' n***a
And things won't be the same without ya n***a
I remember kickin' back, you wanted to lack
And goin' half on a muthafuckin' hundred sack
Smokin' blunt after blunt and 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 goin crazy and runnin' out of fu***n' time
I can't take it, I'm losin' my fu***n' 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?

[Chorus:]

I wish it would have been another
(Yo Kato)
How long will they mourn me
(It's still on nigga)
How long will they mourn my brother
How long will they mourn me
I wish it would have been another
(Yeah)
How long will they mourn me
How long will they mourn my brother
(Rated are, Double Jeopardy, Mack 10)

[Rated R]

Damn a n***a tired of feeling sad
I'm tired of putting in work
I'm tired of cryin while watching my homies leave the earth
I know soon one day I'll be in the dirt
And my peoples'll be mournin'
When they get a call from the coroner
All n****s can say is that's f****d up
And get tossed up
Reminiscing how we grew up (my nigga)
Rest and love to my n***a 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 fu***n' trip
And everybody gotta go
But why the f**k it have to be my n***a Kato
Another n***a fell victim to the chrome
It's enough to make you crazy
It's fu***n' with my dome
Ya only live once on this earth
A n***a had it bad, since the day of my mutahfuckin' birth
But n****s say they down and they always be my homie
But when a n***a gone
How long will ya mourn me?

[Chorus:]

Yeah!
I wish it would have been another
(Mack 10 in this muthafucka)
Yeah, how long will ya mourn me
How long will ya mourn my bother
(Thug Life boy, Nate blowin' that s**t,
Nate Dogg do that s**t nigga)
I wish it would have been another
Yeah! How long will ya mourn me
How long will ya mourn my brother
(This for my n***a Kato and all his kids)
How long will ya mourn me
I wish it would have been another
How long will ya mourn my brother
