Will Smith A Nightmare on My Street [Single Version] Lyrics

Now I have a story that Id like to tell
About this guy you all know me I was scared as hell
He comes to me at night after I crawl into bed
Hes burnt up like a weenie and his name is fred
He wears the same hat and sweater every single day
And even if its hot outside he wears it anyway
Hes home when Im awake but he shows up when I sleep
I cant believe that theres a nightmare on my street

It was a saturday evening if I remember it right
And we had just gotten back off tour last night
So the gang and I thought that it would be groovey
If we summoned up the posse and down watched a movie
I got angie
Jeff got tina
Ready rock got some girl Id never seen in my life
That was all right because the lady was chill
Then we dipped to the theater set to ill
Buggin',cold havin' a ball
And somethin' 'bout Elm street was the movie we saw
The way it started was decent,you know nothin' real fancy
'Bout this homeboy named Fred and this girl named Nancy
But,word!When it was over I said "Yo,that was def"
And everything seemed all right when we left
But when I got home and laid down to sleep
That began the nightmare, but on my street

It was burning in my room like an oven
My bed soaked with sweat
And man I was bugging
I checked the clock and it stopped at 12:30
It had melted it was so darn hot
And I was thirsty
I wanted somethin' cool to quench my thirst
I thought to myself " Yo, this heat is the worst
But when I got downstairs I noticed somethin' was wrong
I was home all alone,but the TV was on
I thought nothin'of it as I grabbed the remote.
I pushed the power b___on and then I almost choked
When I heard this awful voice coming from behind
It said, you got my favourite letter but now you must die
Man, I aint even wait to see who it was
Broke inside my drawers and screamed, so long, cuz
Got halfway up the block
I calmed down and stopped screaming
Then thought, oh, I get it, I must be dreaming
I strolled back home with a grin on my grill
I think that since this is a dream I might as well get ill
I walked in the house, the big bad fresh prince
But freddy killed all that noise real quick
He grabbed me by my neck and said
Heres what well do
We got a lotta work here, me and you
The souls of your friends you and I will claim
You've got the body and I've got the brains
I said, yo Fred
I think you got me all wrong
I aint partners with nobody with nails that long
Look, Ill be honest man, this team wont work
The girls won't be yours Fred, your face is all burnt
Fred got mad and his head started steamin'
But I thought what the hell' I'm only dreamin'
I said "Please leave Fred so I can get some sleep
But gimme a call and maybe we'll hang out next week"
I pat him on the shoulder, said thanks for stopping by
Then I opened up the door and said take care guy
He got mad, drew back his arm, and slashed my shirt
I laughed at first, then thought, hold up, that hurt
It wasnt a dream, man, this guy was for real
I said, freddy, uh,uh,pal there's been an awful mistake here
No further words and then I darted upstairs
Crashed through my door then jumped on my bed
Pulled the covers up over my head
And said, oh please do something with fred
He jumped on my bed, went through the covers with his claws
Tried to get me, but my alarm went off
And then silence
It was a whole new day
I thought, heh, I wasnt scared of him anyway
Until I noticed those rips in my sheets
And that was proof that there had been a nightmare on my street

Fp: oh man, I gotta call jeff, I gotta call jeff
Come on, come on
Come on jeff, answer
Come on, man
Jj: hello?
Fp: jeff, this is prince, man
Jeff, wake up,
Jeff, wake up
Jj: what do you want?
Fp: jeff, wake up, man,
Listen to me, jeff
Jj: its three oclock in the morning, what do you want?
Fp: jeff,listen to me,Jeff, would you listen to me?
Listen, whatever you do, dont fall asleep
Jj: man
Fp: jeff, listen to me, dont go to sleep, jeff
Jj: look, Ill talk to you tomorrow, Im going to bed

Ahhhhhh! ahhhhhh! (ha ha ha ha ha haaaa)

Fp: jeff! jeff! jeff! jeff! answer me, jeff!
