"Burritos" as written by Bradley James Nowell, Eric John Wilson and Floyd I. Gaugh Iv....
I don't want to go and party,
I don't want to shoot the pier,
I don't want to take the doggie for a walk,
I don't want to look at naked chicks and drink beer,
I don't want to do a bong load, go and wrench on a car,
I don't want to hose the dog shit down,
'Cause I ain't even gonna get out of bed,

I ain't gettin',
I ain't gettin' out of bed today,
I ain't gettin',
I ain't gettin' out of bed today,

Keep on skankin' Ronnie,
Skank the night away,
But the time is coming,
For us all to pay.

I don't want to watch no porno,
And I don't want to play guitar,
I don't want to spank the monkey,
I don't want to go down to the corner bar,
And I ain't even got to listen
To all the stupid shit you got to say.
I don't want to do a goddamn thing.
I don't want to,
Want to leave my bed today
I don't want
Want to leave my bed today
I don't want
I don't want to leave my bed today

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Keep on skankin' Ronnie,
Skank the night away,
But the time is coming,
For us all to pay

I don't want to eat burritos,
Or read about OJ
No I don't want to get a head rush
'Cause I ain't even gettin' out of bed today

I ain't gettin',
I ain't gettin' out of bed today,
I ain't gettin',
I ain't gettin' out of bed today,
I ain't got to leave my bed today
No, no, no, no, no, no

Keep on skankin' Ronnie,
Skank the night away,
But the time is coming,
For us all to pay

    General CommentI think its about quitting whatever intoxicant, getting mad sick and avoiding the world to stay clean. I mean, he's straight up sick, and everything is unappealing from hosing down dogshit to partying. He's not even at the point of staying busy to be sober, he can't even get out of bed.

    The lines:
    "Keep on skankin' ronnie skank the night away
    But the time has come for us all to pay"
    maybe mean how everything is fun and a great joke, but stick with shit for long enough and everyone feels like shit eventually.

    These lines:
    "I don't wanna go down to the corner bar
    Ain't even got to listen
    To all the stupid shit you got to say
    I don't wanna do a god damn thing"
    mean 'You suck, I don't care what you say, cause your not fiending in the same way like I am, so I don't really care what your opinion is, how you behave, I just wanna be sober for a minute and you still suck.'

    General CommentI would have to say this was about either depression or drug withdrawal, but most likely a combination of both. Bradley was someone who most likely suffered from bipolar disorder. He was up, he was down, and he self-medicated with every drug under the sun. It was Brad's own way of dealing with his depression. It's also possible that his heroin use caused such severe depression once it wore off that he didn't want to get out of bed the next day. I wouldn't know, because I've never used it.

    The ending of this song is so unique. I've never quite heard anything like it, except in the original version of this instrumental, which is called Fighting Blindly, which was Sublime's first real song from what I understand, and is worth a listen, especially the live version, where he says at the beginning, "This is about the drunkest I've ever been."

    General CommentThis song isn't about being lazy, it's about being depressed and not wanting to do anything because of it.
