La canzone di oggi: Appletree, di Erykah Badu

Terza traccia dell'album Baduizm

It was a stormy night
You know the kind where the lightnin' strike
And I was hangin' out with some my yatzhee friends
Ooh, wee, ooh, wee, ooh, wee
The night was long the night went on
People coolin' out to the break of dawn

Incense was burnin' so I'm feelin' right, aight
See I picks my friends like I pick my fruit
My ganny 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 pleasin' 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

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 here
You just don't want to be down

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
On and on, and on and on
My cypher keeps movin' like a rollin' stone
I can't control the soul flowin' in me
Ooh, wee, ooh, wee

See I picks my friends like I pick my fruit
My ganny told me that when I was only a youth
I don't walk around trying to be what I'm not
Can't stand a mutherfucker trying to get what I got

I work at pleasin' 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

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 don't want daddy
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
You just don't want to be down

Oh, my, my, my, oh, my, my, my
Oh, my, my, my, oh, my, my, my
Oh, on and on, and on and on
My cypher keeps movin' like a rollin' stone
On and on, and on and on
My cypher keeps movin' like a rollin' stone
I go on, on, on, on, on
My cypher keeps movin' like a rollin' stone
On, on, on, on, on
My cypher keeps movin' like a rollin' stone
