Song Meaning
Verse 1
Darkest of night
With the moon shining bright
There's a set goin' strong
Lotta things goin' on
The man of the hour
Has an air of great power
The dudes have envied him for so long
Verse 0
[Chorus]
Superfly
Superfly
Superfly
Superfly
Verse 2
Hard to understand
What 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
Verse 3
[Chorus]
Verse 4
The game he plays he plays for keeps
Hustlin' times and ghetto streets
Tryin' ta get over
(That's what he tryin' to do, y'all)
Taking all that he can take
Gambling with the odds of fate
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Woo, Superfly
Verse 5
The aim of his role
Was to move a lot of blow
Ask him his dream
What does it mean?
He woudn'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
Verse 6
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
Tryin' ta get over
