Lyrics to song Can't say Goodbye by Snoop Dogg feat. Charlie Wilson&The Gap Band

I'm a man I gotta take care of my family
Fighting these pressures in my life
I know my mind should be on
shining and getting grammies
But these streets won't say a goodbye

I can't say goodbye
To the blocks Goodbye
To the hood Goodbye
To the streets (to my problems)
I can't say goodbye
To the hood Goodbye
To the blocks Goodbye
To the streets
I can't say goodbye goodbye
To the blocks Goodbye
To the streets Goodbye
To the hood
I can't say goodbye
To the hood Goodbye
To the blocks Goodbye
To the homies

VERSE 1 - SNOOP DOGG
I quess it's tru, you can't take
the hood out a homeboy
Plus, my hood just lost another homeboy
Another one got life, and we don't
know, if he coming home boy
They industry tell me
"just leave it alone boy,
Let them do them take care of your own boy"
But I sit back think about,
before I was grown boy
and had dreams of being a dope boy
Yeah, I was runnin' from the po po
Banging for the turth, late night huntin'
Puttin'in work, good day
comin', airbrush, shirt,
Pay day, at the spot, got my hair cut first
Made mom sick when I wouldn't go to church
Yeah I live in the burbs, but I think 21st
I know since I left that it's gotten much worse
But I'd still be there, if I
couldn't write a verse

CHORUS - CHARLIE WILSON
I'm a man I gotta take care of my family
Fighting these pressures in my life
I know my mind should be on
shining and getting grammies
But these streets won't say a goodbye

VERSE 2 - SNOOP DOGG
To the the blocks that raise
me, the enemies and the homies that made
Me, tough enough to hang on the
corners that would mold me
Critics wonder if I'm tryna be the old me,
But if the think the old me ever
left, then they don't really know me,
And don't know, we don't change,
we just become OG, you always addicted
To the life, you just don't
OD,but shyt I owe the streets before
they owe me
Took me in when my moma didn't
want me, to wild to be a child, and pops
Not around now, all I got now
is the homies, to teach me, how
to be a man
In what not, how to break ounces in the grams and wat not The reason I'm so nice with
my hands and wat not shit, you think
I forgot, man

CHORUS 3 - CHARLIE WILSON
I'm a man I gotta take care of my family
Fighting these pressures in my life
I know my mind should be on
shining and getting grammies
But these streets won't say a goodbye

VERSE 4 - SNOOP DOGG
Thank god every day that the boy could spit
And all around the world they enjoyin' my shit
I know I got plenty more awards to get
I got a, beautiful wife and some gorgeous kids
But it wouldn't be right if I ignored the shit
that made me who I am, the music in demand
Told me that I can for the world gave a damn
If it wasn't for my niggas, sayin' stick to the plan
Probably be a gun instead of a pen in my hand
Probably be doin' a dub in da pen with my man
The say leave dese streets but they
don't really understand
All I had was the block, when I didn't have fans
rapped on the corners when I couldn't get spins
All I had was the homies when I didn't have kids
If it all come down and my career was
to end, I'm sure my name
Would live.. in the streets

CHORUS - CHARLIE WILSON
I'm a man I gotta take care of my family
Fighting these pressures in my life
I know my mind should be on
shining and getting grammies
But these streets won't say a
goodbye

I just can't say goodbye

I can't say goodbye Goodbye Goodbye
I can't say goodbye Goodbye Goodbye
I can't say goodbye Goodbye Goodbye
I can't say goodbye Goodbye Goodbye

You can take the man out the streets,
But you can't take the streets out the man
