CD 1, Track #17 on Trapeze

Just Like Ali

What I can taste and
What I can see and I
Battered and blue
Say it will love me
I been licked

They love me so
Guess when people lie they say
They love me so
Battered and blue
Say it will love me

Guess when people lie
They so get on
Just like Ali

Look at that man now won’t he look pretty
Lyin at the bottom of the muddy Mississippi
Look like a butterfly sting like a bee
Just like Ali

Paid for salvation I stood by my cause
Delivered some blows like sweet Santa Claus
Didn’t hurt no one but some they mighta hated me
Indeed I did it my way and that’s the truth
Stood by the valley stayed down on my roots
Float like a butterfly sting like a bee
Just like Ali

Look at that man now won’t he look pretty
Lyin at the bottom of the muddy mississippi
Look like a butterfly sting like a bee
Just like Ali

Oh get on 

Paid for salvation I stood by my cause
Just like Ali

Paid for salvation I stood by my cause
Look at that man now won’t he look pretty
Lyin at the bottom of the muddy Mississippi
Just like Ali

Paid for salvation I stood by my cause
Just like Ali

Look at that man now won’t he look pretty
Lyin at the bottom of the muddy Mississippi

Paid for salvation I stood by my cause
Just like Ali

Look at that man now won’t he look pretty
Lyin at the bottom of the muddy mississippi
Just like Ali
