      About "The Watcher"

      Lyrics for Dr. Dre - "The Watcher"

      Things just ain't the same for gangstas
      Times is changing, young niggas is aging
      Becoming O.Gs in the game and changing
      To make way for these new names and faces
      But the strangest things can happen from rapping
      When niggas get wrapped up in image and acting
      Niggas get capped up and wrapped in plastic
      Zipped up in bags: when it happens, that's it
      I've seen 'em come, I've watched 'em go
      Watched 'em rise, witnessed it and watched 'em blow
      Watched 'em all blossom and watched 'em grow
      Watched the lawsuits when they lost the dough
      Best friends and money: I lost them both
      Went visited niggas in the hospital
      It's all the same shit all across the globe
      I just sit back and watch the show

      Everywhere that I go
      Ain't the same as befo' (The watcher)
      People I used to know
      Just don't know me no mo' (The watcher)
      But everywhere that I go
      I got people I know (The watcher)
      Who got people they know
      So I suggest you lay low (I watch)

      I moved out of the hood for good, you blame me?
      Niggas aim mainly at niggas they can't be
      But niggas can't hit niggas they can't see
      I'm out of sight, now I'm out of they dang reach
      How would you feel if niggas wanted you killed?
      You'd probably move to a new house on a new hill
      And choose a new spot, if niggas wanted you shot
      I ain't a thug, how much 2Pac in you you got?
      I ain't no bitch, neither
      It's either my life or your life
      And I ain't leaving, I like breathing
      Nigga, we can go round for round
      Clip for clip, shit, fo'-pound for pound
      Nigga, if you really want to take it there, we can
      Just remember that you fucking with a family man
      I got a lot more to lose than you, remember that
      When you wanna come and fill these shoes

      Everywhere that I go
      Ain't the same as befo' (The watcher)
      People I used to know
      Just don't know me no mo' (The watcher)
      But everywhere that I go
      I got people I know (The watcher)
      Who got people they know
      So I suggest you lay low (I watch)

      Things just ain't the same for gangstas
      Cops is anxious to put niggas in handcuffs
      They wanna hang us, see us dead, enslave us
      Keep us trapped in the same place we're raised in
      Then they wonder why we act so outrageous
      Run around stressed out and pull out gauges
      Cause every time you let the animal out cages
      It's dangerous to people who look like strangers
      But now we got a new era of gangstas
      Hustlers and youngsters living amongst us
      Lookin' at us, now calling us busters
      Can't help but reminisce back when it was us
      Nigga, we started this gangsta shit!
      And this the motherfucking thanks I get?
      It's funny how time fly
      I'm just having fun just watching it fly by

      Everywhere that I go
      Ain't the same as befo' (The watcher)
      People I used to know
      Just don't know me no mo' (The watcher)
      But everywhere that I go
      I got people I know (The watcher)
      Who got people they know
      So I suggest you lay low (I watch)
