C0                 G1          D#2                F3
0It starts with an idea or an impulse to make a sound,
C4 G5 D#6 F7 1And then a message gets sent to my head where my vocal chords are found.
2
3
A#8 F9 C10 4And they vibrate, and cause the air to vibrate too.
A#11 F12 G13 5Then the air gets shot out of my mouth on its way to you!
6
7
C14 G15 D#16 F17 8This vibration I've just made travels as a wave,
C18 G19 D#20 F21 9But if I vibrated differently then it would cause the wave to change.
10
11
A#22 F23 C24 12If I sing low then the frequency of the wave drops.
A#25 F26 13If I sing high then the frequency is high too.
G27 14And if I sing loud then my micro-phone pops!
15
16
C28 G29 D#30 F31 17The sound wave travels through the air unless it hits a wall
C32 G33 D#34 F35 18Then the higher frequencies get absorbed and the deeper ones pass through
19
20
A#36 F37 C38 21And that's why when I'm behind a window I sound like this.
A#39 F40 G41 22And if the wall is hard the sound bounces back and you can hear an echo!
23
24
C42 G43 D#44 F45 25The sound is captured by my micro-phone and sorted digitally,
C46 G47 D#48 F49 26That was until you play this video and now your speakers are mimicking me
27
28
A#50 F51 C52 29And now the waves are back and going into your ear.
A#53 G54 30Only 6 more steps inside your head until you get to hear!
31
32
C55 G56 A#57 33Sound is touch at a distance,
F58 C59 G60 A#61 F62 34When they say that music can touch you, it literally does.
35
36
C63 G64 A#65 37Sound is a vi-ber-ation,
F66 C67 G68 A#69 38But thanks to modern science we can know that it's shaking our eardrums:
39
40
A#70 41And the drum then shakes some tiny bones
C71 42And the bones send vibrations to a liquid
A#72 43And the waves in the liquid bend some hairs
C73 44And the hairs send a signal to the brain
A#74 C75 G76 45And it's only when it forms a pattern in your head that you can hear!
