Super Freak
Rick James

She's a very kinky girl
The kind you don't take home to mother
She will never let your spirits down
Once you get her off the street, ow girl

She likes the boys in the band
She says that I'm her all-time favorite
When I make my move to her room it's the right time
She's never hard to please


That girl is pretty wild now
The girl's a super freak
The kind of girl you read about
In new-wave magazine
That girl is pretty kinky
The girl's a super freak
I really love to taste her
Every time we meet
She's all right, she's all right
That girl's all right with me, yeah
She's a super freak, super freak
She's super-freaky, yow

Super freak, super freak

She's a very special girl
The kind of girl you want to know

From her head down to her toenails
Down to her feet, yeah
And she'll wait for me at backstage with her girlfriends
In a limousine
Going back in Chinatown

Three's not a crowd to her, she says
"Room 714, I'll be waiting"
When I get there she's got incense, wine and candles
It's such a freaky scene

[Refrain]

[Bridge]

Temptations sing!
Ohhhhh
Super freak, super freak
That girl's a super freak
Ohhhhh

She's a very kinky girl
The kind you don't take home to mother
She will never let your spirits down
Once you get her off the street, ow girl

Blow, Danny!

So are they still gonna do a movie about him?

I remember on Chappelles show Rick James was on there and he said

"Cocaine is one helluva drug"

Guess he wasn't lying

He was from Buffalo NY (he was from the eastside around East Delevan) and had personally insulted me as a white person then tried to pick up the girl I was with --- he really was a super FREAK!

never really had the chance to get into his music but the episode he did with chapelle was enough to make me a fan of his.

"coc aine is one hell of a drug"
