I can feel the heat,   no one has  to tell me

      F7sus4  F7                  F7sus4       F7
It's so good, once it starts I'll never let go

                  Eb/F              F7                  Eb/F
I can feel the beat like a Spanish dancer, under my feet

F7         Eb/F            F7            Eb/F
Making the world go 'round, I can't come down

F7               Eb/F           F7               Eb/F
You can't hold me when I get to feeling this way

F7             Eb/F            F7                  Eb/F
It's all over, I'm inside that music that's playing

Gm7              Eb9   Db7sus4  Db7      Db7sus4  Db7
It takes me out across          the wall

Dm7              Bb9      Db7sus4   Db7      Cm7+5  C7+5
It makes my life    a car      -       nival

F7              F7sus4                 F7  F7sus4
I go out on the street and take my chances

F7                 F7sus4             F7   F7sus4
Don't even have to ask, I know the answers


I can feel the street like a Spanish dancer, under my feet,
Making the night go 'round, I can't come down.
You can't hold me when I get to feeling this way
It's all over, I'm inside the music that's playing.
