A fly tramp, that's what she called me
Cause I don't wear no Stetson hats like Paul C
A laid back homeless, he himself has claimed to have lived
damn near homeless, walking the streets of Manhattan, sleeping on benches
This is a reference to the Otis Redding song, Tramp. (Peep the intro, “you don’t wear continentel clothes or Stetson hats”.)
Paul C, full name Paul C. McKasty, was a sound engineer that worked with Ultramagnetic MCs and supposed wore a Stetson hat on the regular.
