  • Song Lyrics:
    This is the legend of Cassius Clay.
    The most beautiful fighter in the world today.
    He talks a great deal and brags indeed-y.
    Of a muscular punch that's incredible and speedy.
    This brash young boxer is something to see.
    And the heavyweight championship is his destiny.

    He is the greatest.

    This kid fights great. He's got speed and endurance.
    But if you sign to fight him, increase your insurance.
    This kid's got a left, this kid's got a right.
    If he hits you once, you're asleep for tne night.
    And as you lie on the floor while the ref counts ten.
    You'll pray that you won't have to fight me again.

    The fistic world was dull and weary.
    But with a champ like Liston, things had to be dreary.
    Then someone with color and someone with dash.
    Brought fight fans a-runnin' with cash.

    Cassious Clay.

    I'm the heavyweight champion of the world.
    And I'm gonna become champion of the universe.

    Don't make me a crown, but it's just what I want.
    A heavyweight crown, because I am great. I am the greatest!
