Me Myself and I
De La Soul Lyrics


Mirror, mirror on the wall
Tell me, mirror, what is wrong?
Can it be my de la clothes
Or is it just my de la song?

What I do ain't make-believe
People say I sit and try
But whan it comes to being de la

It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I

Now you tease my plug one style
And my plug one spectacles
You say plug one and two are hippies
No, we're not, that's pure plug bull

Always pushing that we've formed an image
There's no need to lie
When it comes to being plug one

It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I

Proud, I'm proud of what I am
Poems I speak are plug two type
Please oh please let plug two be
Himself, not what you read or write

Right is wrong when hype is written
On the soul, de la that is,
Style is surely our own thing
Not the false disguise of showbiz

De la soul is from the soul
And this fact I can't deny
Strictly from the dan called stuckie
And from me myself and I

It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I

Glory, glory hallelu
Glory for plugs one and two
But that glory's been denied
By kizids and dookie eyes

People think they dis my person
By stating I'm darkly pack
I know this so I point at q-tip
And he states, 'black is black'

Mirror mirror on the wall,
Shovel chestnuts in my path
Please keep on up with the nuts
So I don't get in aftermath

But if I do I'll calmly punch them
In the fourth day of July
'Cause they tried to mess with
Third degree, that's me myself and I

It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I

I knew we were seeing some of the best back then that period had some amazing ground breaking music, and it hasn't been replicated since, I'd say that is the definition of a golden age.

De La
Tribe
JBs
Public Enemy
NWA then Ice Cube / Dre
Digital Underground then Tupac
Eric B and Rakim
KRS One

So much legend in such a short period.

The whole thing went to crap when sampling became untenable.

[Verse 1 - Dove]
Mirror mirror on the wall
Tell me mirror, what is wrong?
Can it be my De La Clothes
Or is it just my De La Soul?
What I do ain't make-believe
People say I sit and try
But when it comes to being De La
It's just me myself and I

[Hook]
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I

[Verse 2 - Posdnuos]
Now you tease my Plug One style
And my Plug One spectacles
You say Plug One and Two are hippies
No we're not, thats pure plug bull
Always pushing that we formed an image
There's no need to lie
When it comes to being Plug One
It's just me myself and I

[Hook]
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I

[Verse 3 - Dove]
Proud, I'm proud of what I am
Poems I speak are Plug Two type
Please oh please let Plug Two be
Himself, not what you read or write
Write is wrong when hype is written
On the Soul, De La that is
Style is surely our own thing
Not the false disguise of show-biz
De La Soul is from the soul
And in fact I can't deny
Strictly from the Dan called Stuckie
And from me myself and I

[Hook]
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I

[Verse 4 - Posdnuos]
Glory Glory Hallelu
Glory for Plug One and Two
But that glory's been denied
By concensing dookie eyes
People think they diss my person
By stating I'm darkly packed
I know this so I point at Q-Tip
And he states, "Black is Black"
Mirror mirror on the wall
Shovel chestnuts in my path
Just keep all nuts twistin up
So I don't get an aftermath
But if I do I'll calmly punch them
In the 4th day of July
Cause they tried to mess with third degree
That's me myself and I

It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I
It's just me myself and I

Fun fact: this song was written as a joke because the record company wanted a radio song. They made it to fail but it was one of their greatest hits.

yah they ate this shit up

@Charlie Digital Yep, exactly. Another good one is Bachman Turner Overdrive's "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet". They came up with that song to make fun of their manager's stuttering and it became their only #1 hit in the US

These guys literally couldn't fail if they wanted to. Sounds about right.

Sooo Dope. Makes me happy after all the years of pain!

I remember years ago when they were about to put out a new release, they released their entire catalogue for free on their website for a single day.
