Curtis MayfieldSuperfly

Darkest of night With the moon shining bright There's a set goin' strong Lotta things goin' on The man of the hour Has an air of great power The dudes have envied him for so long Oooh, Superfly You're gonna make your fortune by and by But if you lose, don't ask no questions why The only game you know is Do or Die Ah-ha-ha Hard to understand What a hell of a man This cat of the slum Had a mind, wasn't dumb But a weakness was shown 'Cause his hustle was wrong His mind was his own But the man lived alone Oooh, Superfly You're gonna make your fortune by and by But if you lose, don't ask no questions why The only game you know is Do or Die Ah-ha-ha The game he plays he plays for keeps Hustlin' times and ghetto streets Tryin' ta get over (That's what he tryin' to do, y'all) Taking all that he can take Gambling with the odds of fate Tryin' ta get over (4x) Woo, Superfly... The aim of his role Was to move a lot of blow Ask him his dream What does it mean? He woudn't know "Can't be like the rest" Is the most he'll confess But the time's running out And there's no happiness Oooh, Superfly You're gonna make your fortune by and by But if you lose, don't ask no questions why The only game you know is Do or Die Ah-ha-ha Superfly (4x) "Tryin' ta get over..." (9x)
