Artist: De La Soul
Album:  Me Myself and I 12"
Song:   Ain't Hip to Be Labelled a Hippie
   In America today
   People think they know the way
   Of the Soul
   De La is on the road
   To blink and clear the hay
   Behind the line of inner fine
   We 've explained this time and time
   Daisies don't mean everything
   Daisies don't mean anything
   But the word itself when broken up
   Wears just a larger pound
   D.A. stands for "T-H-E"
   I is "Inner"
   S is "Sound"
   Y is "Y'all", that's you
   Should see the Inner Sound
   Will help you breathe
   But still I sport a heavy sigh
   When I have to explain
   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
   PAUL: So, you're just yourself, huh, Pos?
   POS: Basically Paul, that's it.
   PAUL: You mean you're not a hippie?
   POS: No.
   PAUL: Not even a half a hippie?
   POS: Not a nugget.
   PAUL: Wait. What about you and Dove's parents?
   POS: Straight up Soul brothers and sisters.
   PAUL: So what the full equation shows is "The Inner Sound Y'all"
   should be focused on, not just the word 'DAISY' itself.
   POS: Most definitely.
   PAUL: Wait a minute. Did you say 'Most definitely?'
   POS and PAUL: Rrrr-rah!
