[Verse 1] 

B                      G#m
 Music is a world with-in itself,
       G                     F#
With a language we all under-stand.
B                    G#m
 With an equal oppor-tunity,
           G                           F# F7
For all to sing, dance, and clap their ha-nds.


[Bridge 1]

            E9      D#9    D9    C#9
But just be-cause a record has a groove,
      D9      D#9    E9
Don't make it in the groove.
            E9           D#9    D9     C#9
But you can tell right a-way at letter A,
         D9  D#9 E9    F9 F#9  F#7
When the peo-ple start to move.


[Chorus 1]

B                     Fm7-5 Emaj7                 C#m9 E/F#
 They can feel it all over, they can feel it all over people.
B                     Fm7-5 Emaj7                 C#m9 E/F#
 They can feel it all over, they can feel it all over people.

[Verse 2]

B                      G#m
 Music knows it is and always will,
          G                               F#
Be one of the things that life just won't quit.
B                             G#m
 But here are some of music's pioneers,
               G                   F#  F7
That time will not allow us to for-get;


[Bridge 2]

            E9     D#9     D9    C#9
For there's Basie, Miller, Satch-mo,
        D9      D#9      E9
And the King of all, Sir Duke.
           E9         D#9    D9      C#9
And with a voice like Ella's ringing out,
           D9  D#9 E9   F9  F#9  F#7
There's no way the band can lose.


[Chorus 2]

B                    Fm7-5 Emaj7                C#m9 E/F#
 You can feel it all over, you can feel it all over people.
B                    Fm7-5 Emaj7                C#m9 E/F#
 You can feel it all over, you can feel it all over people.
B                    Fm7-5 Emaj7                C#m9 E/F#
 You can feel it all over, you can feel it all over people.
B                    Fm7-5 Emaj7                C#m9 E/F#
 You can feel it all over, you can feel it all over people.

B                    Fm7-5 Emaj7              C#m9        E/F#
 You can feel it all over, I can feel it all over, all o-ver now, people.

B                     Fm7-5 Emaj7                   C#m9     E/F#
 They can feel it all over, come on; let's feel it all over people.
B                    Fm7-5 Emaj7          C#m9 E/F#
 You can feel it all over, everybody all over people.
