JR. Gong]
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
sponsored links
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
A 
nuh 
every 
path 
you 
cross
Lead 
to 
somebody 
whe 
true
Of
 the 
many 
that 
are 
called
Only 
chosen 
is 
a
 few

[Chorus 
2 
– 
JR. Gong]
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

[Verse
 2
 –
 Nas]
Only
 talking 
with 
winners
A
 loser 
or 
two
Got 
my 
number
Still 
they
 think 
they 
real
But 
they 
just 
really 
awfully 
bitter
Salty 
n-ggaz 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 
n-ggaz
Ya’ll 
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 
n-ggaz
Heard 
your 
folks 
bleed 
in 
prison
You
 ain’t 
a 
G
And 
if 
you 
was
I 
don’t 
recall
Who
 would 
roll 
with 
ya’ll
Bunch
a 
f-cking 
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

[Chorus 
3 
– 
JR. Gong]
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
 Eh

[Verse 
3 
– 
JR. Gong]
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

[Chorus
 4
 –
 JR. Gong]
Your
 real 
friends 
will 
serve
 you 
long
When 
all 
else 
fails
Your 
real 
friend 
wont 
do 
you 
wrong
Real 
friend
 don’t
 change

[Verse
 4 
 –
 Nas]
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 
n-ggaz 
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

[Chorus
 5
 – 
JR. Gong]
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

[Bridge 
– 
JR. Gong]
Now 
plentiful
Or
 scantily
My 
cup 
be 
full
Or 
emptily
With 
arm
 in 
arms
We’ll 
all 
trod 
on
Through
 destiny
A
 friend 
that’s 
true
Is 
there 
for 
me
Respect 
is 
due
They 
care 
for 
me
Should I 
be 
down
Or 
even 
out
They’re 
next 
to 
me
Hey

[Chorus Out 
– 
JR. Gong]
Your 
real 
friends 
will 
serve 
you 
long
Your 
memories 
might 
fade
Your
 real
 friends 
will 
serve 
you 
long
Sunshine 
or 
rain, 
hey
Your 
real 
friends 
will 
serve
 you 
long, 
woe 
ya 
woe
When 
all 
else 
fails
Real 
friends
 won’t
 do
 you 
wrong
Real
 friend 
don’t 
change
Real 
friend
 don’t
 change
Real 
friend 
don’t 
change
Real
 friend 
don’t
 change
