The man of the hour Has an air of great power The dudes have envied him For so long [CHORUS] 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 But 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 [repeat CHORUS] The game he plays He plays for keeps Hustling times in ghetto streets Trying to get over That's what he trying to do, y'all Taking all that he can take Gambling with the odds of fate Trying to get over Trying to get over Trying to get over Trying to get over Whoo, 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 [repeat CHORUS] Superfly, Superfly Huh, Superfly, Superfly Trying to get over Trying to get over Trying to get over Trying to get over Trying to get over Trying to get over Trying to get over Trying to get over Trying to get over
