Theme From Shaft Lyrics

Artist: Isaac Hayes

Theme from "Shaft"
Isaac Hayes

Who's the black private dick
that's a sex machine to all the chicks?
You're damn right
Who is the man
that would risk his neck for his brother man?
Can ya dig it?
Who's the cat that won't cop out
when there's danger all about
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)

Isn't "black private dick" a little racist?
by PC Too Far on 6/21/2009 6:17am
Is a black man referring to himself as a black man racist?

Private dick is a common reference to private investigator.

To answer directly, no it's not racist, not even close. But your thoughts may be.

A dick and an eye are not the same thing. But a private dick and a private eye are.

To us older folks, "Black private Dick" can mean reference to a detective. W. C. Fields had a comedy in about the 1940's "The Bank Dick" which featured an investigator. Common usage back then. The feature could be on U-Tube.

I'm scoring this tune out for a college big band and small string section. Lots of cool little parts all thru this chart. Basically it is just Fmaj 7 and Eminor!
