Music I First Heard in 2014 – Muhammad Ali (Black Superman) by Johnny Wakelin and the Kinshasa Band

These posts are for music I first heard in 2014 which I love and want to share. This one is just super! Great story, great groove, great tune to sing to. I don’t know why it’s not more popular and frequently played! Great video, too!

I just LOVE it! I can even shadow box dance to it, lol!

There are other videos with just the music, and not video and audio clips of Ali but not as fun, in my opinion. That’s the stuff that inspired this song!

Lyrics

This here’s the story of Cassius Clay 
Who changed his name to Muhammad Ali 
He knows how to talk and he knows how to fight 
And all the contenders were beat out of sight 

Sing, Muhammad, Muhammad Ali 
He floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee 
Mohammed, the black superman 
Who calls to the other guy I’m Ali catch me if you can 

Now all you fight fans, you’ve got to agree 
There ain’t no flies on Muhammad Ali 
He fills the arena wherever he goes 
And everyone gets what they paid for 

Muhammad, was known to have said 
You watch me shuffle and I’ll jab off your head 
He moves like the black superman 
And calls to the other guy I’m Ali catch me if you can 

He says I’m the greatest the worlds ever seen 
The heavyweight champion who came back again 
My face is so pretty you don’t see a scar 
Which proves I’m the king of the ring by far 

Sing, Muhammad, Muhammad Ali 
He floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee 
Mohammed, the black superman 
Who calls to the other guy I’m Ali catch me if you can 

Sing, Muhammad, Muhammad Ali 
He floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee 
Muhammad, the black superman 
Who calls to the other guy I’m Ali catch me if you can 

I’m Ali catch me if you can
