How Long Will They Mourn Me?
by 2Pac



How long will they mourn me?
Yeah! This for my nigga Kato
It's still on nigga, believe that
We live a Thug Life, Thugs for Life
Yeah (How long will they mourn me?) We handle this shit for you bwoy
Yeah nigga
2Pac in this motherfucker

All my homies drinkin' liquor
Tears in everybody's eyes
Niggas cried, to mourn a homie's 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 suckers back before your buried (shit)
Retaliate and pull a one-eight-seven
Do real niggas get to go to heaven?
How long will they mourn me? Bury me a motherfuckin' G
Bitch don't wanna die, then, don't fuck with me
It's kinda hard to be optimistic
When your homie's lyin' dead on the pavement twisted
Y'all don't hear me doe, I'm tryin hard to make amends
But I'm losin' all my motherfuckin' friends, damn!
They should've shot me when I was born
Now I'm trapped in the motherfuckin' storm
How long will they mourn me?

I wish it would have been another
How long will they mourn me?
How long, will they mourn my brother (Half them niggas all dead and shit)
How long will they mourn me?
I wish it would have been another (dedicated this to Kato nigga, and e'ry thug)
How long will they mourn me?
How long, will they mourn my brother (yo nigga, we gotta keep this shit goin' on, yo Syke)

How long will they mourn me?
Every motherfuckin' day homie
You stayed down when the other niggas didn't know me
From my heart to the trigger you my fuckin' nigga
And things won't be the same without ya nigga
I remember kickin' back, you wanted a 'llac
And goin' half on a motherfuckin' 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 fuckin' time
I can't take it, I'm losin' my fuckin' 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?

I wish it would have been another (Big Kato)
How long will they mourn me? 
How long, will they mourn, my brother (It's still on nigga)
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 R, Double Jeapordy, Mac 10)

Damn, a nigga tired of feelin' sad
I'm tired of puttin' in work
I'm tired of cryin' watchin' 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 niggas can say is that's fucked up
And get tossed up, reminiscin' how we grew up (my nigga)
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?

We 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
It's enough to make you crazy, it's fuckin' with my dome
You only live once on this earth a nigga had it bad
Since the day, of my motherfuckin' birth (uh)
But niggas say they down and they always be my homie
But when a nigga gone, how long will ya mourn me? 

(Yeah!) I wish it would have been another (Mac 10 in this motherfucker, yeah!)
How long will you mourn me?!
How long, will they mourn my brother (Thug Life boy, Nate, blowin that shit)
I wish it would have been another (Nate Dogg do that shit nigga, yeah)
How long will you mourn me?!
How long will they mourn, my brother (This for my nigga Kato, and all his kids)
How long will you mourn me?!
I wish it would have been another
How long will they mourn my brother
