Lyrics

Brother, grab your chillum
And get all your gear, we got problems
We gotta get out of here
Well, I got you and you got me
We’re as high as we could be
So it’s all right
Oh yeah it’s all right
It’s not your fault and it’s not mine
I was just in the wrong place and time, now there’s trouble
Oh yeah trouble
And how did we, get into this mess?
Pineapple Express, Pineapple Express
Totally gone cause’ we’re on Pineapple Express
Gotta keep your head down
And be as cool as you can
No i got us ohh no evacuation plan
Just stay low, follow me
They can’t see what we can see
Cause’ we’re on it, yeah it’s the chronic
Don’t get excited, just get your head right and we’ll stick together if it takes all night
And, it’s all right
Yeah it’s all right
And how did we get into this mess, Pineapple Express
Not use to this stress
Righteously fine to dine, Pineapple Express
We’re on the express, the best in the west
The hell with the rest, it’s the best, Pineapple Express
(Cough, cough, “that’s good weed”)
And how will we get out of this mess, Pineapple Express
Can’t deal with this stress
Totally gone cause’ we’re on Pineapple Express
Get on the express, Pineapple Express
Yeah it’s the best in the west, Pineapple Express
So fine, it’s the kind
Pineapple Express
