Can you dig it? Damn the instrumental is tight, awesome and also excellent.

Shaft!
Who’s the black private dick
That’s a sex 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)
