Faithless Muhammad Ali Lyrics

Last updated: 12/11/2011 10:00:00 AM

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 silent,
Watching you shape destiny with your 2 hands,
Faster than the eye could see.

Mesmerizing

You know what skinny little me started to strut,
10 years old suddenly bold
Cause I resolved to live like my hero in the ring,
Be smart never give an inch,
No retreating, and 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 and I remain convinced,
Of his invincibility, athletic agility, virility,
Still a free spirit.
Forever through eternity stinging like a bee,
Mister Muhammad Ali

I want you to know that you are the original!
I want you to know that you are the original!
I want you to know that you are the original!

Your achievements defy belief from the belly of the beast Rising like yeast,
My relief 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 someday people would love me too.
None of the hecklin about my black skin got through.
I woulda walked barefoot through hell for you
It's how I felt back then an I still do so will you
Accept these humble words of praise,
And my gratitude for those glorious days
And your victorious ways,
Instilled in 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!
