Don’t they have their own culture to crap all over?

SHAFT CONS ADDENDUM [Jonah Goldberg]

Checking my other email addres, I found this late email in response to the Shaft theme song thing from last week. A reader writes:

Jonah,

While the theme from Shaft may have its cute aspects, its a terrible song, from a terrible movie and WAY overplayed.

I’d suggest the theme from Superfly, and “Superfly Conservatives” has a nice ring to it as well. Andwhile Superfly was a drug pusher, he had the same free agent/kick-butt spirit of John Shaft. Terrible movie as well, but one with the greatest pop soundtrack of all time.

I’m sure you know all this since, like me, you probably went through an awkward “o.g./pimp/hustler” phase in college. (ha.)

Anyway, here’s my revised lyrics for the theme of Superfly Conservatives everywhere:

Darkest of night
With the moon shining bright
There’s a war goin’ strong
Lotta things goin’ wrong
The man of the hour
Has an air of great power
The dudes have envied him for so long

(Chorus)
Oooh, Superfly
Hearts and minds can just pass on by
He don’t care, don’t ask no questions why
The only game he knows is Do or Die
Ah-ha-ha

Hard to understand
What a hell of a man
This cat knows the slum
Has a mind, isn’t dumb
When weakness is shown
He’ll leave people on their own
He takes care of his own
You best leave him alone

Chorus

The game he plays he plays for keeps
Kickin’ ass in foreign streets
Don’t try to win them over
(That’s not what he tryin’ to do, y’all)
Taking all that he can take
Gambling with the odds of fate
Don’t try to win them over (4x)
Woo, Superfly

The aim of his role
Is not saving souls
Ask him his dream
What does it mean?
He wouldn’t know
“To Hell with the rest”
Is the most he’ll confess
But time’s running out
And there’s no happiness

Chorus
Superfly (4x)

“Don’t try to win them over…” (9x)

Shaft Cons? Superfly Cons?

I guess it sounds better than The Doughy Pantload Panthers…
