    Lyrics

    [Dr. Dre]
    Things just ain't the same for gangsters
    Times is changin, young niggaz is agin
    Becomin O.G.'s in the game and changin
    To make way for these new names and faces but
    The strangest things can happen from rappin
    When, niggaz get wrapped up in image and actin
    Niggaz get capped up and wrapped in plastic
    And 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 them 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 and visisted niggaz in the hospital
    And saw the same shit all across the globe
    I just sit back and watch the show (the watcher)

    Chorus: Dr. Dre

    Cause 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 (the watcher)

    [Dr. Dre]
    I moved out of the hood for good - you blame me?
    Niggaz aim angry at niggaz they can't be
    But niggaz can't hit niggaz they can't see
    I'm out of sight, now I'm out of they dang reach
    How would you feel if niggaz wanted you killed?
    You'd probably move to a new house on a new hill
    And choose a new spot if niggaz wanted you shot
    I ain't a thug - how much Tupac in you you got?
    I ain't no bitch neither - it's either my life
    Or yo' life and I ain't leavin - I like breathin
    Cause nigga we can go round for round
    Clip for clip, shit fo'pound for pound
    Nigga if you really wanna take it there we can
    Just remember that you fuckin with a family man
    I got a lot more to lose than you, remember that
    When you wanna come and fill these shoes (the watcher)

    Chorus

    {*GUN SHOT*}

    [Dr. Dre]
    Things just ain't the same for gangstas
    Cops is anxious to put niggaz in handcuffs
    They wanna hang us, see us dead or enslave us
    Keep us trapped in the same place we raised in
    Then they wonder why we act so outrageous
    Run around stressed out and pull out gauges
    Cause everytime you let the animal out cages
    It's dangerous, to people who look like strangers
    But now we got a new era of gangsters
    Hustlers and youngsters livin amongst us
    Lookin at us, now callin us bustaz
    Can't help but reminisce back when it was us
    Nigga we started this gangsta shit!
    And this the motherfuckin thanks I get?
    It's funny how time fly
    I'm just havin fun, just watchin it fly by (the watcher)

    Chorus

    (the watcher - 4X)
