verse:

A                     F#m
   music is world within itself

           F                    E
and it's a language we all understand


A                     F#m
   with an equal opportunity

             F                             E5    Eb5
for which to sing and dance and clap their hands


prechorus:

just because a record's in the groove don't make it in  the good

you can tell right away from letter 'a' when the people start to  move

   they can feel it all over people

verse:

A                       F#m
   music always has and always will

          F                               E
be one of the things that life just won't quit

               F                  E5    Eb5
that time will not allow us to forget

prechorus:

        D5    Db5     C5   B5         C5      Db5      D5
there's basie ell and satchmo and the king of all, sir duke

         D5         Db5     C5      B5              C5        
when the sound like that is ringing out, there's no way

Db5 D5   Eb5 E
the band can lose


chorus: (play 8 times)

   you can feel it all over
