Theme from Shaft
Isaac Hayes Lyrics

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)

There's not nearly enough waka chika in music these days.

Totally agree... How do you suppose to be really in the mood without bongos , waka chika and flutes.... We 're going to the extinction

Tim Bryant

You said it.


@markas5 I couldn't agree more,, right on my brother.


@Catcrumbs you'll need a wah wah pedal, and be able to finger mute a guitar string (in this case, the low E).
The original guitarist Charles 'Skip' Pitts used a Maestro Boomerang Wah, but today you'll get close with anything you buy.
