                Celebration - Kool & The Gang
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Kool & The Gang
Celebration (1980)
(Kool & The Gang)
From: "Celebrate!"


The chords in the chorus look confusing over the lyrics. That's why I tabbed 
these parts out, so it becomes clearer.
Come on and celebrate - you can even do it on an acoustic. Enjoy!
