A Nightmare On My Street Lyrics By D J Jazzy Jeff The Fresh Prince

    fresh prince
    now i have a story that i’d like to tell
    about this guy you all know him he had me scared as hell
    he comes to me at night after i crawl into bed
    he’s burnt up like a weenie and his name is fred
    he wears the same hat and sweater every single day
    and even if it’s hot outside he wears it anyway
    he’s gone when i’m awake but he shows up when i’m sleep
    i can’t believe that there’s a nightmare on my street

    fresh prince
    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 groovy
    if we summoned up the posse and bum rushed the movies
    i got angie jeff got tina
    ready rock got some girl i’d never seen in my life
    that was all right though ’cause 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 nothing real fancy
    about this homeboy named freddy and this girl named nancy
    but word when it was over i said yo that was def
    and everything seemed alright when we left
    but when i got home and laid down to sleep
    that began the nightmare but on my street

    fresh prince freddy kruger
    it was burning in my room like an oven
    my bed soaked with sweat man i was buggin’
    i checked the clock and it stopped at 0
    it had melted it was so darn hot and i was thirsty
    i went downstairs to grab some juice or a coke
    flipped the tv off and then i almost choked
    when i heard this awful voice comin’ from behind
    it said you turned off david letterman now you must die
    man i ain’t even wait to see who it was
    broke outside in my drawers and screamed so long cuz
    got halfway up the block i calmed down and stopped screamin’
    then thought oh i get it i must be dreamin
    i strolled back home with a grin on my grill
    i figured 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
    here’s what we’ll do we got a lot of 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 brain
    i said yo fred i think you’ve got me all wrong
    i ain’t partners with nobody with nails that long
    look i’ll be honest man this team won’t work
    the girls won’t be on you fred your face is all burnt
    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 wasn’t a dream man this guy was for real
    i said freddy 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 somethin’ with fred
    he jumped on my bed ripped 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 huh i wasn’t 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

    fresh prince jazzy jeff freddy krueger
    oh man i gotta call jeff i gotta call jeff
    come on come on
