This hook is a parody of call-and-response hooks that are found in some rap songs. It was designed to be nonsensical and contradict itself. For example:
– You don’t traditionally lick cake to get to the center of it.
– Laughing signifies that you’re both awake & asleep, which is impossible.
“Counting the sheep” is a way of calling out everybody who listened to this hook and paid little attention to it. A “sheep” in this case is someone who follows orders without thinking for oneself.
