Curtis Mayfield Freddie's Dead (Theme From Superfly) Lyrics

Last updated: 06/04/2012 11:00:00 AM

Freddie's dead.
That's what I said...
Let the man rap a plan; 'said he'd send him home.
But his hope was a rope, and he should have known.

Everybody's misused him; ripped him off and abused him.
Another junkie playin'; pushin' dope for the man.
A terrible blow, but that's how it go...
Freddie's on the corner now... if you wanna be a junkie, wow...
Remember, Freddie's dead...

We're all built up with progress,
but sometimes I must confess,
we can deal with rockets and dreams,
but reality... what does it mean? Ain't nothing said.
'cause Freddie's dead.

Hey, hey...
Love, love...
Hey, hey...
Hee! yeah...
Huh huh...
Love, love...
Freddie's dead

All I want is some piece of mind
with a little love I'm trying to find
this could be such a beautiful world
with a wonderful girl
a woman child
don't want to be like Freddie now
cause Freddie's dead

Everybody's misused him; ripped him off and abused him.
Another junkie playin'; pushin' dope for the man.
Freddie's on the corner now... if you wanna be a junkie, wow...
Remember, Freddie's dead...

hey hey hey ha.
Freddie's dead
