The Lyrics

This is what stoners see when they're high. Enjoy...
Now this is what it's like when bums get high...
Now this is what it's like...
Now this is what it's like when bums get high...
Now this is what it's like...

What is it really
That's going on here?
Is this scene real or am I gonna die?
Now is there any
Body out there?
Who knows the difference between sober and high?

What is it really that is in my head?
Is it speed or is it cyanide?
I'm never, ever gonna become sober
Now this is what it's like when bums get high!

Are you ready to smoke!?
'Cuz I'm ready to smoke!
What'cha gonna smoke, baby, baby!
Are you smokin' this weed!?
Can I buy it from you!?
Selling weed is a crime!

What is it really
That motivates you?
Is it this speed or is it this crack?
We'll smoke it night long
Until you realize
That you depend on this to get you high

Now which is right and which is the devil?
You can't decide what will make you high
What you want is to be sitting here, smokin'
'Till you see what it's like when bums get high!

Are you ready to smoke!?
'Cuz I'm ready to smoke!
What'cha gonna smoke, baby, baby!
Are you smokin' this weed!?
Can I buy it from you!?
Selling weed is a crime!

You are a stoner

Now this is what it's like when bums get high...
Now this is what it's like...
Now this is what it's like when bums get high...
Now this is what it's like...

What is it really that you wanna get high for?
I know that you want to get high
I know that you do not want to ever stay sober
Now you know what it's like when bums get high!

Are you ready to smoke!?
'Cuz I'm ready to smoke!
What'cha gonna smoke, baby, baby!
Are you smokin' this weed!?
Can I buy it from you!?
Selling weed is a crime!

Are you ready to smoke!?
'Cuz I'm ready to smoke!
What'cha gonna smoke, baby, baby!
Are you smokin' this weed!?
Can I buy it from you!?
Selling weed is a crime!

Are you ready!?
Yes, I'm ready!
Smoking weed is a crime!

Are you ready!?
Yes, I'm ready!
Smoking weed is a crime!
Rate me, please!:)

I find marijuana to be a good topic to parody. I'm not high.
