These later days in Babylon As I watch your children grow And the years them carry on And I miss you even more Still I send them go to school And tell them What dem fi know All of mi friend dem mi salute Daddi gon and Lenny Screw Another year has come and past Man a drop like morning dew Uncle Warrick sick and gone When him couldn't catch a flew Picka T you a mi don Respect long and overdue When nothing never did a gwan You still have on somethin' new Our friendship ever last All when one minus from few Yes we surely had a blast We're like family me and you I know every path you cross Lead to somebody whe' true Of the many that are called Only chosen is a few Of the real friends that serve you long Your memories might fade Your real friends will serve you long Sunshine or rain Your real friends will serve you long Acquaintances will fade Your real friends wont do you wrong Real friend don't change Only talking with winners A loser or two Got my number Still they think they real But they just really awfully bitter Salty niggas hate the smarter ones These are the doubters Who's our bout my run I barely made it out the slums My value high cause I do more than Rap about a gun I made money for niggas Y'all never looking out for none I helped millionaires get to that very position Some real millionaires see that's ill Cause look at statistics Real millionaires And I ain't talking ghetto riches Thorough business You mistreating niggas Heard your folks bleed in prison You ain't a G And if you was I don't recall Who would roll with y'all Buncha fucking know it alls Who's dough is small Look what's it come to Our rapport's good no more We was good before Till I saw what type a dude you took me for We had a chance to take paper down What I took was more Because of hatred Opportunity wasted Your real friends will serve you long Your car and clothes will fade Your real friend wont do you wrong Real friend don't change Hey Your real friend won't run in war Nuh care what the cost is You real friends are in for all the wins and the losses Fi Real! No question at all Them ready fi rise the tallest Take to the enemies All for one And one for all this Real friend will hear you out No secret feelings Real friends won't sell you out No bargain pleading For real! Always looking out A meal! When outside a drought Your real! Friend won't hide you out No Your real friends will serve you long When all else fails Your real friend wont do you wrong Real friend don't change May laughter From backstabbers Turn to tears faster I wish for you No snake shall slither past ya You have to Keep your vision clear Cause only a coward lives in fear My surroundings Got only real powerful niggas here Real men we have a code of ethics No question No jealousies No feminine tendencies We expecting No gossip No phony logic No counting your homey pocket Spare no expense for legal defense If your homey locked up No keeping tabs On who was the last who looked out Selfishness That's a character flaw No holding out Yo what happened to the honor? You're dealing with Sensitive Pre-Madonna drama Teflon love For my dudes who solid Your real friends will serve you long Your memories might fade Your real friends will serve you long Sunshine or rain, eh Your real friends will serve you long, woe ya woe When all else fails Your real friends wont do you wrong Real friend don't change Real friend don't change Real friend don't change Real friend don't change Real friend don't change
