Servant of Allah, Muhammad Ali

Born as Cassius, Last name Clay

Black is Beautiful, Equality must stay

 

Floats like a Butterfly, Stings like a Bee

Servant of Allah, Muhammad Ali

 

Golden gloves champ, Olympic boxing gold

Whooped Sonny Liston, Broke the fighters mould

 

Floats like a Butterfly, Stings like a Bee

Servant of Allah, Muhammad Ali

 

Always a showman, ferocious in attack

Malcolm X’s Brother, Proud to be Black

 

Floats like a Butterfly, Stings like a Bee

Servant of Allah, Muhammad Ali

 

Stood against the Government, Said they were Wrong

I’m not going to war, to fight no Vientcong

 

Floats like a Butterfly, Stings like a Bee

Servant of Allah, Muhammad Ali

 

Stripped of his title, Sent to Jail

Man of Principle, will not fail

 

Floats like a Butterfly, Stings like a Bee

Servant of Allah, Muhammad Ali

 

Thrilla in Manilla, against the might Joe

Two great warriors, going toe to toe

 

Floats like a Butterfly, Stings like a Bee

Servant of Allah, Muhammad Ali

 

Rumble in the Jungle, Big George’s Show

Bull and the Matador, no need the final blow

 

Floats like a Butterfly, Stings like a Bee

Servant of Allah, Muhammad Ali

 

Known as the Greatest, his legacy immense

Like Sugar Ray, he had a sixth sense

 

Floats like a Butterfly, Stings like a Bee

Servant of Allah, Muhammad Ali

 

Ring time is over, they said his time was done

Fighting for the underdog, potential in everyone

 

Floats like a Butterfly, Stings like a Bee

Servant of Allah, Muhammad Ali

 

First name Muhammad, Last name Ali

Loved by the people, modern day Ghandi

 

Floats like a Butterfly, Stings like a Bee

Servant of Allah, Muhammad Ali
