Sir Duke

1976 Stevie Wonder
Music is a world within itself
With a language we all understand
With an equal opportunity
For all to sing, dance, and clap their hands
But just because a record has a groove
Don’t make it in the groove
But you can tell right away at letter A
When the people start to move

But here are some of music’s pioneers
That time will not allow us to forget, no
For there’s Basie, Miller, Satchmo
And the king of all, Sir Duke
And with a voice like Ella’s ringing out
There’s no way the band can lose
“You can feel it all over”

Written as a tribute to Duke Ellington
(and Count Basie, Glenn MIller, Louis Armstrong, and Ella Fitzgerald)
