    Jazz is makin’ do with taters and grits
    Standin’ up each time you get hit
    Jazz ain’t nothin’ but soul.

    Jazz is livin’ high off nickels and dimes
    Tellin’ folks ‘bout what’s on your mind
    Jazz, it ain’t nothin’ but soul.

    Trumpets cussin’, saxophones, rhythm makin’ love,
    Hustlers wearin’ fancy clothes
    The voice of my people.

    For me, it’s all the truth to be found
    Never mind who’s puttin’ it down
    Jazz ain’t nothin’ but soul.
