Barry White – Shaft Theme lyrics

Who's the black private dick
That's a s**
Machine to all the chicks?(Shaft!)
You're damn right

Who is the man that would risk his neck
For his brother man?(Shaft!)
Can ya dig it?

Who's the cat that won't cop out
When there's danger all about(Shaft!)

Right on

You see this cat Shaft is a bad mother
(Shut your mouth)
But I'm talkin' about Shaft
(Then we can dig it)
He's a complicated man
But no one understands him
But his woman (John Shaft!)
