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 Oh, 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 Oh, 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 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 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 Oh, 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 Superfly Superfly Superfly Tryin' ta get over Tryin' ta get over Tryin' ta get over Tryin' ta get over Tryin' ta get over Tryin' ta get over Tryin' ta get over Tryin' ta get over Tryin' ta get over

Guys, this reminds me of what happened to me once. Me and a mate of mine were looking for our own place to live but because house prices are ridiculous, we decided to both chip in together and get a single place and be room mates. Eventually, we heard about this place from a guy selling it on the internet, saying it was a 2-bed shack outside the city we lived in. It seemed alright so we both bought it and went to see it. Turns out the whole thing was a con and all we did was buy an old abandoned power pilon and the guy had done a runner and left us with this place and no money. My mate decided "Sod it" and went off to live his own life with what little he had left but I decided to make a go of it and fitted it up best I could with a cooking stove and a few other amenities to make it comfortable. One day though shit got weird and I found I couldn't leave, whenever I'd try to escape this thing, I'd just end up trapped, my skin turning into metal as I tried to force my way out and now here I am, stuck in this freaking pilon with no hopes of escape unless someone's willing to switch places with me. Life fuckin sucks, dude...

They should re-release this in 2017, they'd make a load of cash, the millennials would think it was a marvel movie about an insect with super powers, then they get educated as to what REAL music is.

Many have tried to capture the essence of the gangster, hustling lifestyle in the 45 years since this was released, but no one has expressed the simultaneous allure and tragedy as well as the genius Curtis Mayfield.   Growing up in the Cabrini Green projects, he understands this world well.  He recognizes the appeal without glorifying it.  While not judgmental, he ultimately realizes the inevitable consequences and shortcomings of the lifestyle better than anyone I have ever heard.  Biggie lyrically was the only thing I have heard that comes close."Had a mind, wasn't dumb
But a weakness was shown
'Cause his hustle was wrong"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
