Faithless - Muhammad Ali

rate me

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!
