I need a song related to Muhammad Ali's life?

I need a song where in the lyrics it describes how when someone like Muhammad Ali was the greatest and lots of people would look up to him, and his "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee" self...and he would brag, boast, and proclaim that he was the Greatest! When all of a sudden he is diagnosed with parkinson's disease and he turns into nothing and is pretty much useless.

So I need a song that shows no matter how great or famous one is...they can suddenly just turn into nothing.

    I've got several suggestions but first understand that Muhammad Ali was retired when he received the diagnosis so he was partially out of the limelight. Once he had the disease he didn't go to nothing.

    He helped create a foundation to deal with the issues of Parkinson's disease: The Mohammad Ali Parkinson Foundation.

    He has been awarded medals, honorary doctorate degrees, he lit the Olympic torch in 1996. His foundation provides treatment and funds research. Because of him, people have paid attention, gotten early diagnosis which can definitely prolong the quality of life for a PwP. He has helped innumerable young people with the Early Onset form of the disease by setting an example along with Michael J Fox. Young or Early Onset PD was pretty much ignored until these two gentlemen opened to the public.

    Nothing - I don't think so.

    He and his family have done more since his PD diagnosis than you and I and all of our friends & acquaintances combined to educate, help, inspire, finance research and still survive. That is not nothing; it is a very important Something.

    But in the vein in which you were thinking - I think this is the way most people feel after being diagnosed with a serious condition:

    It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday by Boys 2 Men

    How do I say goodbye to what we had?

    The good times that made us laugh

    Outweigh the bad.

    I thought we'd get to see forever

    But forever's gone away

    It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

    I don't know where this road

    Is going to lead

    All I know is where we've been

    And what we've been through.

    If we get to see tomorrow

    I hope it's worth all the wait

    It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

    And I'll take with me the memories

    To be my sunshine after the rain

    It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

    And I'll take with me the memories

    To be my sunshine after the rain

    It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday
