Appletree - Erykah Badu

I'd like to delicate this to all the children
I have some food in my bag for you
Not the edible foof, the food you eat, no
Perhaps some food for thought
Since knowledge is infinite
It has infinitely fell on me, so um...

It was a stormy night, you know the kind where the lightnin' strike
And I was hangin' out with some of my artsy friends
Ooh wee, ooh wee, ooh wee
The night was long, the night went on, people coolin' out 'til the break of dawn
Incense was burin' so I'm feelin' right, aight

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 tie 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 wanna pick from my appletree (x3)
And if you don't want to be down, you just don't want to be down

I have a hoe
And I can 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 cipher 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 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 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 dow with me
You don't want to pick from my appletree (x3)
And if you don't want to be down with me
You just don't want to be down

Oh my my my my, oh my my my my, oh my my my my my my my

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 pleasin' me
Cause I can't please you, and that's why I do what I do
My sould flies free like a willow tree
Doo wee, doo wee, doo wee

And if you don't want to be down with me
You don't want to pick from my appletree
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 appletree
And if you don't want o be down with me
You just don't want to be down
You just don't want to be down
You just don't want to be down
