Who's the black private dick
That's a sex machine to all the chicks?
Shaft, ya, damn right
Who is the man that would risk his neck
For his brother man?
Shaft, can you dig it?
Who's the cat that won't cop out
When there's danger all about?
Shaft, right on
They say this cat Shaft is a bad mother
Shut your mouth
But I'm talkin' 'bout Shaft
Then we can dig it
He's a complicated man
But no one understands him but his woman
