  • 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 Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
