~ Announcer spoken
Right about now ladies and gentlemen
We'll like to continue with our show
I introduce to a young man
That's only twelve years old
And he is considered as being a
Genius of our time
Ladies and gentlemen let you and I
Make him feel happy with a nice ovation
As we meet and greet Little Stevie Wonder
How 'bout it, eh
~ Stevie

Ladies and gentlemen, now I'm going to do a song
Taken from my album, 'The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie'
The name of the song is called, umm, 'Fingertips'.

Now, I want ya to clap yo' hand, come on.
Come on!

Jump up and down, do anything that you wanna do!

Clap your hands, just a little bit louder
Clap your hands, just a little bit louder

Just-a one more time
