  • What I want you to do is count to ten
    Nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two
    On one, you will be asleep - one

    I'm a blunt gettin smoked and I can't wake up

    I'm dreamin, about bein a blunt
    I'm runnin around and I just can't wake up, hah!
    I'm dreamin, about bein a blunt, ho!
    I'm walkin around and I just can't wake up

    I'm tryin to wake up, I can't wake up
    So I run and jump, someone yelled, "Get that blunt!"
    Get that blunt now I'm thinking this is major
    I've got a bunch of people chasin me with a razor?!
    I don't like this dream as a blunt
    But I can't get out of it and I can't seem to wake up
    So I'm runnin and racin, blunt smokers are chasin
    This is insane, I'm caught by House of Pain
    I'm picked up, they said they gonna Put My Head Out
    They slit my back and all the tobacco fell out
    Now I'm hollowed wet thin and yes ready
    They poured the shumpang gently and re-wet me
    I'm in the mouth yo, I can't wake up
    Yo I'm a blunt gettin smoked and I can't wake up

    I'm a blunt gettin smoked and I can't wake up

    Check it out now, in the same attire here comes the fire
    OW they lit it, now I'm burnin by the minute
    But check it out, more heads came to chill
    Everlast took a pull and passed me to Cypress Hill
    Cypress Hill took a pull, lungs are full
    Who's next? I'm bein passed to Das EFX
    As they took a mad pull, smoke blows in heaps
    It's really smoky but I can still see Black Sheep
    Whoa! Black Sheep gets me, relights me
    Room is proper, now I'm passed off to Shabba
    Shabba's voice gets low like a tuba
    He said, "Me no follow no rumor" and passed me to Grand Puba
    I wasn't burnin right so Puba got mad at me
    And said, "Who rolled this?" and passed it to Kid Capri
    Kid Capri said, "I won't front!
    Pass it to Redman, he knows how to roll a blunt"
    Redman said, "No need to re-roll"
    He hit, relit it, and passed me to De La Soul
    De La Soul took a hit and kept hittin
    Now they're buggin cause they passed me to Bill Clinton
    Bill Clinton said, "I'll smoke but I won't inhale
    I'll only hit it twice," he got slapped by Greg Nice
    Now I fell on the floor, Greg Nice picked me up
    I'm bein smoked and I can't wake up

    I'm a blunt gettin smoked and I can't wake up

    Get me out of this, somebody wake me up
    I'm still on fire and I'm still bein smoked up
    Half my body is gone, now they're comin to my head
    Now my head is being pinched by Teddy Ted
    A crazy nightmare I got to go
    I got to wake up and I'm passed off to Yo-Yo
    Yo-Yo gets respect as a lady
    She didn't smoke, she passed me to Showbiz & A.G
    A.G. said, "Respect due seen"
    He got one big pull and passed me to Smooth B
    Smooth B, although he's talking to Teddy
    Took a hit and passed me to Fab 5 Freddy
    Freddy said, "Yo! There's nothing left pop"
    Looked at me in my face and passed me to Chubb Rock
    Chubb Rock said, "Yo Freddy chill!
    If you ever catch me smoking, just kick me in the grill"

    I'm a blunt gettin smoked and I can't wake up
