Hits from the bong
Hits from the bong
Hits from the bong
Hits from the bong

Pick it, pack it
Fire it up, come along
And take a hit from the bong
Put the blunt down just for a second
Don't get me wrong, it's not a new method
Inhale, exhale
Just got a ounce in the mail
I like a blunt or a big fat cone
But my double barrel bong is gettin' me stoned
Home skillet, there's water inside don't spill it
It smells like shit on the carpet
Still it, goes down smooth when I get a clean hit
Of the skunky funky smelly green shit
Sing my song, puff all night long
As I take hits from the bong

(Hits from the bong, y'all)
Hits from the bong
Can I get a hit?
Hits from the bong
Can I get a hit?
Hits from the bong
Can I get a hit?
Hits from the bong
Can I get a?

Let's smoke that bowl, hit the bong
And then take that finger off of that hole
Plug it, unplug it
Don't strain, I love you, Mary Jane
She never complains, when I hit Mary
With that flame, I light up the cherry
She's so good to me, when I pack a fresh bowl I clean the screen
Don't get me stirred up the smoke, through the bubblin' water
Is makin' it pure so I got to
Take my hit and hold it
Just like Chong, I hit the bowl and I reload it
Get my four-footer and bring it on
As I take hits from the bong

Hits from the bong
Can I get a hit?
Hits from the bong
Can I get a hit?
Hits from the bong
Can I get a hit?
Hits from the bong
Can I get a hit?
Hits from the bong
This shit here, this shit here
Can I get a hit?
This-this shit here
Hits from the bong
This shit hits so bad
Can I get a hit?
This shit hits so bad, this shit'll straighten your dick out
Can I get a hit?

Overall Meaning

Cypress Hill's "Hits from the Bong" is a classic stoner anthem that celebrates the ritual of smoking and its effects. The song is essentially a tribute to the bong, a water pipe used for smoking cannabis. The lyrics depict the process of packing a bowl of marijuana, lighting it up, and inhaling the smoke, all while enjoying the relaxation and altered state of mind that accompanies it.


The opening lines of the song, "Pick it, pack it, fire it up, come along and take a hit from the bong," invite the listener to join in the festivities and partake in the smoking ritual. The next lines, "Put the blunt down just for a second, don't get me wrong, it's not a new method," suggest that the bong is just one of many ways to smoke marijuana, but it is a preferred method for the artist.


The song's chorus repeats the phrase "hits from the bong" several times, further emphasizing the focus on the smoking ritual. The lyrics also reference the cleanliness and smoothness of the smoking experience with lines like "Still it goes down smooth when I get a clean hit" and "The smoke through the bubblin' water is makin' it pure."


Overall, "Hits from the Bong" celebrates the culture and community around smoking cannabis and the feelings of relaxation, pleasure, and escape that it can provide.

@@stevenrasmussen9705 I always said for years: "Life is more fun stoned!".

I was wrong! It isn't! I've been off it for three years now, and I might've put some weight on, but I feel better for it!

There comes a time when everyone has to grow up, and put a stop to the party!
The party's gotta end sometime!

And if I told you about the DICKS I used to hang around with, you'd understand why I gave up!

But other than the dicks I used to hang around with, I also gave up because I was spending too much!
More than I could afford!

And I was fed up of the same old routine, week after week after week after week!
I wasn't getting anything done coz it was fuckin my motivation!
And I was just stoned ALL THE TIME!

And within 12 months of getting off it, I was working!
