"Good Man Is Gone"


[Intro: Sample from Monk Higgins': "A Good Man Is Gone" (Joell Ortiz)]
"If he had left here in a natural waaaay, (in a natural waaaay...) (then what? haha!)
I would feel better when I hear me - saaaay: (what?!) - "A good maan is gooone! "" (uhh, uhh!)

[Joell Ortiz {Monk Higgins Sample}:]
A half a G and E&J out in the big park, (yeah!)
When it got dark we occasionally let the.5th bark. (BOOM!)
You was a hustler, - I was a rhyme writer. (whattup?)
You would serve customers, I would ignite cyphers! (HA!)
We rode around, try and get ass in a white Mazda, (come here!)
Till one day you just disappeared like my father! (hey)
'Member you talkin 'bout that out-of-town dough?
You was drunk! - Most of the time I ain't think you'd be out, yo!
You was drunk! - Most of the time I ain't think you'd be out, yo! (WHOOO!)
Sure did, took your wife and your kid out to P-A, {gooone!}
Right around my B-day. (uh-huh!) - Guess you had it mapped out. (okay!)
Always knew the crack route, (uhh!) {gooone!}
Had them kids in that small town (uhh!) shook rollin' dice (uhh!) with your Gat out! (hehe!)
I visited time to time, I had to check my dude; {gooone!}
You had the hoes on a string, they always blessed the crew. (HAA!)
A Shotgun shell turned my man flesh to stew. (OOHH!) - Damn, Jizz, we miss you! (damn!)

[Chorus: Joell Ortiz {Monk Higgins Sample}]
{A good maan is...} A good man is gone! {gooone, gooone, goooone!} (gone! hah!)
{A good maan is...} A good man is gone! {gooone, gooone, goooone!} (hah!)
{A good maan is...} A good man is GONE! (GONE!) {gooone, gooone, goooone!} (hah!)
{A good maan is...} A good man is gone... {goooone!} Gone... gone... {A gooood man is...} gone!

[Joell Ortiz {Monk Higgins Sample}:]
Uhh! - I met you at Sue's Rendezvous on a Tuesday, (pardon!)
Flex spinnin', I see it like it was today! (word!)
"Block Royal" emblem on your Polo-T, (uhh!)
Handsome nigga; no homo, B. (word!) - You had that glow though see. (c'mon!)
I 'member you asked why I'm so low-key (uh-huh!)
With such a fire mixtape I need a promo V! (hehe!)
You introduced me to the family, took it out to Jers', (yeah!)
Studio in the basement when I pronounce the words. (what?)
Studio in the basement when I pronounce the words! (whooo!)
I 'member you goin' crazy: "Told you he get his flame on! " (hahaaa!) {gooone!}
Right after that's when you introduced me to Akon! (whattup?)
We 'posed to get a track that was nuts like acorns, {gooone!}
Years since you gone I'm STILL gettin' my wait ON! (what?)
Anyway, - your boy gettin his fame on, {gooone!}
Aftermath gang, got my EMINEM and my Dre on. (hey!)
Still rep' "B.R.", - Know I carry the name on! - Damn, Screw, we miss you!

[Chorus: Joell Ortiz {Monk Higgins Sample}]
{A good maan is gooone, gooone, goooone!} A good man is gone! (hah!)
{A good maan is gooone, gooone, goooone!} A good man is gone! (hah!)
{A good maan is gooone, gooone, goooone!} A good man is gone! (hah!)
{A good maan is goooone!} Gone... gone... gone... Uhh! {A gooood man is...}

[Bridge: Joell Ortiz]
This is for anyone who's ever took a loss (c'mon!)
In bed, lights out, you just turn and you toss! (NOOO!)
It wasn't their turn, it wasn't their turn! (uhh!)
Listen, we all got somethin' to leeaarn! (that's that!)

[Joell Ortiz {Monk Higgins Sample}:]
Two things is certain, you live then you die; (ch'eah!)
And I'm a do a lot of livin 'fore I get to the sky. (YEAH!)
'Fore I sit with that guy and repent for my sins, (uhh!)
On my knees hands together and I pray to get in! (c'mon!)
On my knees hands together and I pray to get in! (whooo!)
But until then, (what?) - man, I'm playin' to win; {gooone!}
I came in this game po', I'm a say: "YAY! " at the end! (YUP!)
You ain't super duper nice don't be displayin' your pen, (Yaowa!) {gooone!}
I'll expose it! None of your friends'll claim you again! (who?!)
Joell Ortiz is the name I defend {gooone!}
In the streets, on beats, on every stage I attend;
I'm official! ('FICIAL!) - God forbid I'll die by that pistol, say: "YAOWA! " - We miss you! (word!)

[Chorus: Joell Ortiz {Monk Higgins Sample}]
{A good maan is...} A good man is gone! {gooone, gooone, goooone!} (gone... hah!)
{A good maan is...} A good man is gone! {gooone, gooone, goooone!} (hah!)
{A good maan is...} A good man is GONE! (GONE) {gooone, gooone, goooone!} (hah!)
{A good maan is goooone!} A good man is gone... gone... gone... gone! {A gooood man is...}

[Bridge]

[Outro: Joell Ortiz]
A good man, y'all...
A good man is gone!
I know you lost somebody!
This is for you... and you!
Yeah!
Keep 'em alive, y'all!
Keep 'em alive, y'all! Keep 'em alive, y'all! [echoes] [6 seconds instrumental]
Keep 'em alive, y'all!
Keep 'em alive, y'all! Keep 'em alive, y'all! [echoes] [6 seconds instrumental]
A good man is GONE! [beat stops]
