    What are you?
    I'm just a simple man
    I like pretty things
    I'm a simple man, really
    I'm just a simple man
    I like pretty things; I like funny things

    I like my high hats on eight notes
    Basic, don't double up the flow
    I ride the beat; you chase it
    Hennessey straight with the lemon squeezed to quench
    Sounds from the town, they pound with intent
    Experiment with this like it's different 'cause it is
    They make the norm, and it's not what I live
    I give my all and want to ball like y'all
    But I can only spit my shit, you get it?
    I'm not a clone; I got a zone, and Grouch fits in
    Forever rockin' twenty-dollar pants to the end
    I stand six-one and eat food with cheese in it
    Make g's and spend it at the music store
    I never use no more than my head to be led where I'm goin'
    Knowin' points of interest well
    And with the sense it takes to make underground tapes dope
    I formulate how I set sail
    Whether direct or retail I prevail on tracks
    A few bars deep and bizarro on scratch [Ah, yeah]
    Borrow from a batch of, let's say, garbage-ass records
    Not too safe to me with few exceptions
    True direction comes from inside the mind
    And everything else is just accessories
    That is my recipe for life, invest in me
    I want my lady here tonight caressin' me
    Now you can pay me in this type necessity
    Electricity of mic, invest in me the soul

    I'm just a simple man
    I like pretty things
    I'm a simple man, really
    I'm just a simple man [Yes, I am]
    I like funny things; I like beans and rice
    I'm just a simple man
    I like stupid things
    I'm a simple man, really
    I'm just a simple man [What you like?]
    I like funny things; I like cheap things

    Give me the body of a goddess ???? from God
    It's odd how things fall in place
    I'm all about good taste, expensive or not
    No sensitive spot in you, I like what I got
    Now don't mistake man for mind, 'cause I'm not simple-minded
    Just logical, efficient and completely on time
    With my thoughts in the process always bring progress
    I guess this clockwork enabled me to not work
    Nine to five, I rhyme and drive to eat
    Check the Internet, fuck and make a beat
    Go to wack show, sometimes it's still fun
    We criticize fools for bitin' on Big Pun
    Since this is the West Coast I like my hip-hop bumpin'
    Get heated off some wax with the side of sayin' something
    In the trunk and in the earphones
    I'll make it clear, homes
    I'm all about how it sounds
    I deal with audio
    My graffiti looks like shit
    I dress how I dress and can't really dance a lick
    The chance is this shit might never catch on
    But my friends like my songs, and I like my songs
    Life-long endeavors for the pleasure
    Measure of ??? comin' weak, that's the treasure
    I'm just a simple man
    I like basic things
    I'm a simple man, really
    I'm a smart man [Yes, I am]
    I like pretty things; I like dope things
    I'm just a simple man
    I like music fresh
    I'm a simple man, get it?
    I'm just a simple man
    I like pretty things; I like pretty girls
    [That's the point, got it? Not too hard. Yeah!]
    [Don't you just be something on a shelf; just always be yourself]
