About Me Myself and I

"Me Myself and I" is a song by American hip hop trio De La Soul, released as a single in 1989 from their debut studio album, 3 Feet High and Rising. It established the group's characteristic style of combining hip hop with humor and social commentary. The group's frustration concerning their forced-upon hippie label is addressed in the typically dry humor which became the De La Soul trademark. It was the group's only number one on the U. S. R&B chart. The song also topped the U. S. Club Play chart. The song, along with its B-side are structurally similar to Black is Black by The Jungle Brothers. The song's number 1 position in The Netherlands was spurred by the VPRO television station, who made a documentary about De La Soul after meeting them when they were still unknown. The record label Indisc acquired the local rights from Tommy Boy Records, and immediately seized the opportunity to release the song as a single. It ranked number 46 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop. This song is included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. It is also used in the video games NBA Street V3 and NCAA Football 06. The song was used in the opening scene for the season 5 finale of the HBO original series Entourage. As of August 2016 the song appears in a "Back to School" marketing commercial for Macy's.

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 when 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 hallelujah
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
