John & Ernest – Super Fly Meets Shaft lyrics

We interrupt this record
To bring you a special bulletin
Super Fly is missing

(Owww, good God)

We now take you to our
On the spot reporter

I have several witnesses here with me
Sir, when was the last time
You saw Super Fly

(It was the third of September)

And you, Sir, can you describe
The suit Super Fly was wearing

(Black or yellow, red or white and brown)

And you, Sir, who was the last person
Super Fly was seen with

(Mrs., Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones
Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones)

If we need you for any further information
Can we call you

(Whenever you call me, I'll be there)

We take you now to Washington

We're here at the White House
The President has a special
Announcement regarding Super Fly
Mister President, Mister President
What seems to be the problem

(I got ants in my pants
And I need to dance)

Just arriving at the White House
Is the man who would risk his
Neck for his brother man (Shaft)

Shaft, now that the President
Has called you into the case
What will you be doing

(Chasing women and drinking)

Mister President
What is your opinion of Shaft

(This cat Shaft is a bad
Shut your mouth)

I see the President and Shaft
Have gone into the White House

(What they do)

Mister President, Mister President
What are you and Shaft doing in there

(Holding hands
Making all kinds of plans)

Mister President, why are you
Holding hands with Shaft

(Could it be I'm falling in love)

I've just been handed a bulletin
Super Fly was last seen

(In Egypt, in Israel too)

We take you back to
Our on the spot reporter

I'm here with Freddie
Who we believe knows
The whereabouts of Super Fly
Excuse me, Freddie
What a minute, what happened

(Freddie's dead)

Freddie's dead?

(That's what I said)

Oh, well, I have several other witnesses
Do you know where Super Fly is

(We know, they know and
You know and I know)

I don't know, how do you know

(Your best friend wrote and told me)

And just who is my best friend

(Super Fly)
