Superfly

Curtis Mayfield

  Darkest of night 
With the moon shinin' 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' cards on ghetto streets 
Tryin' ta get over 
(That's what he tryin' to do, y'all) 
Takin' all that he can take 
Gamblin' with the odds of fate 
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Woo, Superfly 

The aim of his role 
Was to move a lot of blow 
Ask him his dream 
What does it mean 
He wouldn'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
