"Shaft" as written by and Isaac Hayes....
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)

    General Commentif I'm interpreting these correctly, this fellow, "Shaft", is a "bad mother", and you need to "dig it".

    General CommentIssac Hayes is the shit. I hated the remake of Shaft. He never got laid once! It's fuckin' Shaft! And I mean "fucking" Shaft! You can't remake movies like that and try to clean them up. It just doesn't work!

    General CommentYeah, the whole basis for Shaft, was sleaze. He got laid all the time, that was what made him cool.
    The Samual L Jackson version was also too polished.
