The information one can obtain via Wikipedia never ceases to amaze, including the following articulate analysis of the song lyrics.
REGULATORS! MOUNT UP!
Read the rest of the synopsis at Wikipedia, and here's the video so you can sing along...It was a clear black night, a clear white moonWarren G was on the streets, trying to consumesome skirts for the eve, so I can get some funkjust rollin' in my ride, chillin' all alone
On a cool, clear night (typical to Southern California) Warren G travels through his neighborhood, searching for women with whom he might initiate sexual intercourse. He has chosen to engage in this pursuit alone.
Just hit the Eastside of the LBC
on a mission trying to find Mr. Warren G.
Seen a car full of girls ain't no need to tweak
all you skirts know what's up with 213
Nate Dogg, having just arrived in Long Beach, seeks Warren. On his way to find Warren, Nate passes a car full of women who are excited to see him. Regardless, he insists to the women that there is no cause for excitement.
So I hooks a left on the 21 and Lewissome brothas shootin' dice so I said "Let's do this"I jumped out the ride, and said "What's up?"some brothas pulled some gats so I said "I'm stuck."
Warren makes a left turn at 21st Street and Lewis Ave, where he sees a group of young men enjoying a game of dice together. He parks his car and greets them. He is excited to find people to play with, but to his chagrin, he discovers they intend to relieve him of his material possessions. Once the hopeful thieves reveal their firearms, Warren realizes he is in a less than favorable predicament.
Since these girls peepin' me I'ma glide and swervethese hookers lookin' so hard they straight hit the curbWon'tcha think of better things than some horny tricksI see my homey and some suckers all in his mix
Meanwhile, Nate passes the women, as they are low on his list of priorities. His primary concern is locating Warren. After curtly casting away the strumpets (whose interest in Nate was such that they crashed their automobile), he serendipitously stumbles upon his friend, Warren G, being held up by the young miscreants.
I'm gettin' jacked, I'm breakin' myselfI can't believe they taking Warren's wealththey took my rings, they took my RolexI looked at the brotha said "Damn, what's next?"
Warren, unaware that Nate is surreptitiously observing the scene unfold, is in disbelief that he's being robbed. The perpetrators have taken jewelry and a name brand designer watch from Warren, who is so incredulous that he asks what else the robbers intend to steal. This is most likely a rhetorical question.
