Reviews:
How to tell if you're a 'larger than life' character? When they write songs about you and you're not a politician. Had he been fighting a bit longer, Weird Al would have had a song about him. Most would agree that Muhammad Ali (1942-2016) fought much longer than he should have, though.

This is one of my favorite novelty songs of this era and it always pops into my head and stays there way too long whenever I think of the mid '70s. Along with Nixon, Swine flu, mood rings, skull bongs, etc.

Song Lyrics:
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
Muhammad, 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 world's 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

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"

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
(Stavro Arrgolus)
