Muhammad Ali Black Superman Song

Though Ali completely shunned the song, the fans of the boxer took the song to another level

‘Muhammad Ali: Black Superman’ Song is one of the greatest songs paying homage to the true champion. Johnny Wakelin, who used to work as an English recording artist, wrote this song  in 1974. He came up with this fabulous song  after Muhammad Ali emerged victorious against George Foreman in Kinshasa in a matchup which was later known as “the rumble in the Jungle.” The song turned to a super duper hit in UK reaching the number seven in the UK Singles Chart.

Though Ali completely shunned the song, the fans of the boxer took the song to another level.

Here is the Lyrics of the song:

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
