    "Muhammad Ali" Lyrics


    If all you keep hearing it so long you will see me as a super
    star and you'll have time to waste with your minions and tink
    I see your face in front of me,
    Still grainy from that old black and white TV
    My whole family silenced,
    Watching you shape destiny with your 2 hands,
    Faster than the eye can see...


    You know what skinny lickle me started to struggle,
    10 years old suddenly bold

    Cause I resolved to live like my hero in the ring...
    Be smart never give an inch, No retreating
    an I racked up respect from teachers, Red Necks
    And creatures who attack in a pack like insects.
    Never seen the like not before or
    Since, a young prince
    An I remain convinced of his invincibility
    Athletic agility, virility,
    Still a free spirit, forever through eternity
    stingin' like a bee...
    Mr Muhammed Ali.

    I want to know who you are!
    I want to know who you are!
    I want to know who you are!

    Your achievements defy belief from the belly of the beast
    Rising like yeast,

    yo, My release from low self esteem
    Came when I saw you rapping on my TV screen.
    Float like a butterfly,
    That describes my walk to school after fight night
    I felt so cool cause I was the greatest too,
    Love of self born simply out of love for you,
    And I knew that someday people would love me too.
    None of that hecklin' about my black skin got through,
    I would walk barefoot through hell for you,
    It's how I felt back then an still do, so will you
    accept these humble words of praise,
    And my gratitude for those glorious days
    And meritorious ways instilled in the a young mind.
    Skill sublime,
    yours to mine!

    I want to know who you are!
    I want to know who you are!
    I want to know who you are!
