Lyrics

[Intro] I'd like to dedicate this to all of the Creator's righteous children I have some food in my bag for you Not that edible food, the food you eat? No. I have some food for thought Since knowledge is infinite It has infinitely fell on me, so um... [Verse 1] It was a stormy night, you know the kind where the lightning strikes And I was hanging out with some of my artsy friends Ooh wee ooh wee ooh The night was long, the night went on People cooling out until the break of dawn Incense was burning so I'm feeling right, aight [Bridge] See I picks my friends like I pick my fruit My Granny told me that when I was only a youth I don't walk around trying to be what I'm not I don't waste my time trying to get what you got I work at pleasing me Cause I can't please you and that's why I do what I do My soul flies free like a willow tree Doo wee doo wee doo wee [Hook] And if you don't want to be down with me Then you don't want to pick from my apple tree And if you don't want to be down with me Then you don't want to pick from my apple tree And if you don't want to be down with me Then you don't want to pick from my apple tree And if you don't want to be down, you just don't want to be down [Verse 2] I have a hoe And I take it everywhere I go Cause I'm plantin' seeds so I reaps what I sow, ya know, ya know Oh, on and on, and on and on, my cypher keeps moving like a rolling stone I can't control the soul flowing in me Ooh wee ooh wee [Bridge] See I picks my friends like I pick my fruit My Granny told me that when I was only a youth I don't walk around trying to be what I'm not I don't waste my time trying to get what ya got I work at pleasing me Cause I can't please you and that's why I do what I do My soul flies free like a willow tree Doo wee doo wee doo wee [Hook] And if you don't want to be down with me Then you don't want to pick from my apple tree And if you don't want to be down with me Then you don't want to pick from my apple tree And if you don't want to be down with me Then you don't want to pick from my apple tree And if you don't want to be down with me, you just don't want to be down Oh my my my, oh my my my Oh my my my, ah Oh my my my my my my my [Bridge] Oh, I picks my friends like I pick my fruit My Granny told me that when I was only a youth I don't walk around trying to be what I'm not I don't waste my time trying to get what you got I work at pleasing me Cause I can't please you, and thats why I do what I do My soul flies free like a willow tree Doo wee doo wee doo wee [Hook + Outro] And if you don't want to be down with me You don't want to pick from my apple tree And if you don't want to be down with me, dum dum diddy And if you don't want to be down with me You don't want to pick from my apple tree And if you don't want to be down with me, you just don't want to be down You just don't want to be down Oh, you just don't want to be down Down, down, down You just don't want to be down... Down, down, down, down, down, down Down, down, down, down, down, down [Fades out]
