Faithless - 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 little 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 retreat when I'm wrapped up
Respect from teachersred necks
And creatures who attack in a pack
Like incensed never seen the light not before or
Since a young prince
And I remain convinced of his invincibility
Athletic agilityvirility
Seen your free spirit for every through eternity stings
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
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 at place too
Love myself born slippy
Outta love for you
And I knew that someday people would love me too.
None of that heckling about my black skin got through
I would walk bare foot through hell for you
It was how I felt back then I would still do for you
So accept these humble words of praise
And my gratitude for those glorious days
And your victorious ways
Instilled in the young minds
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!
