Nate Dogg – Why lyrics


did my homie have to die with, tears in my eyes I
came to say goodbye say, goodbye (repeat
2X) Just

passin through to let you know that I remember the times we shared Your
mother prayed for us both night and day I
guess this is what she feared The
picture in my room keeps your image sharply in my head All
in my head I
just can't let go of the memories I had will; this madness ever end Chorus?


I wonder if it's better to be free or be in jail Incarceration
at this time to me is better than heaven or hell I
often wonder if you'd still be here if you had won your bet Won
your bet You
most likely soon see me we'll all be a memory If
we don't change this mess change... it or we gone y'all Chorus


passing, you through to let you know Passing
you through to let you know That
I gonna, tell everyone I know Gonna
tell everyone I know How
we used, to send them to the floor Used
to send them to the floor Have
we have, we forgot to mourn Ohh

how, long how, long how, long will they mourn Ohh
how, long how, long how, long will they mourn Chorus
