[guru]
The music started in the hearts and drums, from another land
Played for everyone, by sons, of the motherland
Sendin out a message of peace, to everybody and
Came across the oceans in chains and shame
Easing the pain, and it was without name
Until some men in new orleans on rampart street
Put out the sounds, and then they gave it a beat
I'm talkin bout jelly roll, king, and satch
I'm talkin bout the music that had no match
Yes the music, and it was born down there
We're gonna use it, so make the horn sound clear
It's jazz music... jazz music

Yo, the music that pops, and other cats made
It stayed, cause people love when they played
To the north, it took a riverboat shuffle
To the big cities, with lots of hustle and bustle
To chicago, and to the apple too
This was a scene, that our forefathers knew
Go get your crew, I know they'll get into
The jazz music... jazz music

The music called jazz had the razzamatazz
It had the flavor, and a lot of pizazz
The big band beat was very neat and unique
The swing was king, it made you tap your feet
There was benny and duke and of course the count basie
The melody was smooth and yes, very taste
There was hap, the prez, and lady day and
Dizzy bird and miles, they were all playin
They brought it to the people of the foreign lands
Back across the oceans and the desert sands
Where it echoes in the distant sounds of drums
And it rises with the sun on days begun
This is the music, that we give tribute to
They gave it to us, that's why we give it to you
The jazz music... the jazz music

The jazz music... uh.. uh.. uh..
