      De La Soul - The Magic Number Música y Letra

      (Got to have soul!) 
      That's the Magic Number 
      Yes it is 
      It's the magic number 
      Somewhere in this hip-hop soul community 
      Was born 3 Mase, Dove and me 
      And that's the magic number 
      (What does it all mean?) 
      Difficult preaching is Posdnuos' pleasure 
      Pleasure and preaching starts in the heart 
      Something that stimulates the music in my measure 
      Measure in my music, raised in three parts 
      Casually see but don't do like the Soul 
      'Cause seein' and doin' are actions for monkeys 
      Doin' hip hop hustle, no rock and roll 
      Unless your name's Brewster, 'cause Brewster's a Punky 
      Parents let go 'cause there's magic in the air 
      Criticising rap shows you're out of order 
      Stop look and listen to the phrasin' Fred Astaires 
      And don't get offended while Mase do-se-do's your daughter 
      A tri-camera rolls since our music's now set 
      Fly rhymes are stored on a D.A.I.S.Y. production 
      It stands for "Da Inner Sound Y'all" and y'all can bet 
      That the action's not a trick, but showing the function 
      Everybody wants to be a deejay 
      Everybody wants to be an emcee 
      But being speakers are the best 
      And you don't have to guess 
      De La Soul posse consists of three 
      And that's the magic number 
      This here piece of the pie 
      Is not dessert but the course that we dine 
      And three out of every darn time 
      The effect is "Mmmm" when a daisy grows in your mind 
      Showing true position, this here piece is 
      Kissin' the part of the pie that's missin' 
      When that negative number fills up the casualty 
      Maybe you can subtract it 
      You can call it your lucky partner 
      Maybe you can call it your adjective 
      But odd as it may be 
      Without my 1 and 2 where would there be 
      My 3 
      Mase Pos and Me 
      And that's the Magic Number 
      Focus is formed by flaunts to the soul 
      Souls who flaunt styles gain praises by pounds 
      Common are speakers who are never scrolls 
      Scrolls written daily creates a new sound 
      Listeners listen 'cause this here is wisdom 
      Wisdom of a Speaker, a Dove and a Plug 
      Set aside a legal substance to feed 'em 
      For now get 'em high off this dialect drug 
      Time is a factor so it's time to count 
      Count not the negative actions of one 
      Speakers of soul say it's time to shout 
      Three forms the soul to a positive sum 
      Dance to this fix and flex every muscle 
      Space can be filled if you rise like my lumber 
      Advance to the tune but don't do the hustle 
      Shake, rattle, roll to my Magic Number 
      Now you may try to subtract it 
      But it just won't go away 
      Three times one? 
      (What is it?) 
      (One, two, three!) 
      And that's the Magic Number 
      (Yo, what's up?) 
      (1, 2, 3) 
      (I say, children, what does it all mean?) 
      (Woah-woah-wo, 1, 2, 3) 
      (I wouldn't lie to you) 
      (No more no less, that's the magic number) 
      (No more no less) 
      (What it is?) 
      (No more no less) 
      (Is this the future?) 
      (No more no less) 
      (Do the shang-a-lang) 
      (No more no less) 
      (No one on the subway ever chats to me) 
      (No more no less) 
      (Anybody in the audience ever get hit by a car?) 
      (No more no less) 
      (How high's the water, mama?) 
      (No more no less) 
      (How high's the water, mama?) 
      (No more no less) 
      (Three feet high and rising) 
      (No more no less) 
      (That's the magic number)
