Jonny Lang - Get What You Give

Intro:

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

Verse 1:

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 cornerstore 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

Chorus:

One more day, one more

One more day

One more day, one more

One more day

Verse 2:

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 axe 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, thankyou for one more day
