The Champ is dead and the game is not the same without his voice

What used to be boxing is  now sparkles and noise
We all mourn the departing of one more hero this year
One who floated like a butterfly and could sing by the ear
Its time to go home Ali to your heaven or whatever lies across the void
They wanted you to be the people’s champion but you refused to be their droid
A fighter never gives up and a fighter goes on and on
Head body head and so goes the song
 Shuffle your feet in heaven Ali
Angels praise your name
What used to be a bloodsport
Is now just another game
