"Get Ready" as written by Bradley James Nowell, Floyd I. Gaugh Iv, Eric John Wilson and Lawrence Krsone Parker....
Some folks say that smoking herb is a crime,
If they catch you smokin' they're bound to drop the dime
Insufferable informa crazy fools
Wait with their fingers crossed for you to break the rules
And in the evening, we try to jam,
We like the music loud in this here band
We let the bass line drop as loud as we can stand
Somebody always gotta turn informa for the man
I wanna know know right now, is there one of you in the crowd,
Are you gonna call 911?
And spoil all of my fun
You crazy fool

I'm in the mood
Get ready
I'm in the mood
Come on now, yeah
I'm in the mood
Are you ready?
I'm in the mood
Come on now, yeah
Come on

Load up the bong, crank up the song
Let the informa' call 911
Load up the bong, crank up the song
Let the informa call 911
And when security police force want to arrive
Don't try to run, don't try to hide
Just pull out the .9, pop in the clip, and let one slip
Into these crazy fools

I'm in the mood
Get ready
I'm in the mood
Come on now, yeah
I'm in the mood
Are you ready?
I'm in the mood
Come on now, yeah

And in the evening, when we try to jam
We like the music loud in this here band
Oh, I wanna know now, I want to know, know right now
Are you willing, are you willin' and able?
Oh, got the crazy fool

Some folks say that smoking herb is a crime
If they catch you smokin' they're bound to drop the dime
Insufferable informa' crazy fools
Wait with their fingers crossed for you to break the rules

But, I'm in the mood
Get ready
I'm in the mood
Come on now, yeah
I'm in the mood
Are you ready?
I'm in the mood
Come on now, yeah
I'm in the mood
Get ready
I'm in the mood
Come on now
Uh!

    General CommentWhy do these crazy "vigilantes" do that? If toking wasn't a CRIME, then I'm sure they wouldn't complain to anyone. Just because it is illegal because it is, the everday ignoramus will do everything he/she can to be a fascist follower.

    The song is really straightforward, like most of Sublime's lyrics. And that's a good thing for once.

    General CommentI love this song, when you hear it you can easily tell that Sublime isnt one of those stupid stoners, you can tell that they know how to control their high, and its saying fuck the people who think of weed as something bad, when Brad says "you crazy fools" I love that part, cause he is speaking truth, there is absoulety nothing wrong with smoking the reefer

    General CommentGotta love Bradley for writing this song, good 4:20 song. I use to smoke... along with other substances and weed really keeps you peaceful. It is the least harmful thing out there, the only crime it was guilty of for me was making me depressed cuz i smoked all day everyday without stop for a long time. I use to say weed was good for everything: smoke to wake up -smoke to go to sleep, smoke to feel happy -smoke to calm down, smoke to get high- smoke to get stoned. I mean anything in moderation is fine, I just can't smoke once in a while. Once I start smoking I can't stop cuz it's all natural and who doesn't like getting high? Quitting after many years, I would never condemn anyone for smoking weed, its a beautiful thing. My pops use to say god made all medicines for a reason, and weed definitely has its place. I still smell people's weed, you can't beat the smell of well grown mary jane :D. and I still bump Sublime all the time, they're one of those bands where all their songs are killer- new and old.
