"What's This?!" is the song Jack sings as he accidentally discovers Christmas Town in Tim Burton's animated musical film, The Nightmare Before Christmas.

It's a really fun one to play - I hope you enjoy it :)

F             G#-Bb-^C
They're gathering

^C#-^C  G#  ^C   G#  ^C-G#
Around   to   hear   a   story

Roasting chestnuts on a fire!

They're covering it with tiny little things

But look, there's nothing underneath

F       G#        F     G#-Bb    ^C  ^C#   ^C
No ghouls, no witches here to scream

G#     ^C     G#   ^C    G#-^C     G#
And scare them or ensnare them

^C-G# ^C-G# ^C-G# ^C
Only   little   cozy   things

G#-^C   G#-^C    G#     ^C  - G#
Secure   inside   their   dreamland...

^C        ^C#
What's this?

 

Bb   ^C#-^C   Bb  ^C  ^C#-^C
The monsters are all missing

Bb   ^C#   ^C - Bb       G# Bb ^C
And the nightmares can't be found

Bb ^C# ^C Bb ^C ^C# ^C Bb ^C#
And in their place there seems to be good

^C# ^C - Bb    G#  Bb-^C
Good feelings all around!

^C#-^D#  ^C#  ^C  ^C#  ^D#
Instead   of   screams   I   swear

I   can   hear   music   in   the   air

^C#   ^D   ^C    Bb   ^C   ^D
The smell of cakes and pies

^C  ^D-^E-^F-^E   ^D-^F-^E
Are   absolutely   everywhere...

 

^C#   ^D    F#        A
The sights, the sounds

F#        A-B-^C#     ^D   ^C#   F#-G#
They're everywhere and all around

F#    G#-A   B   ^C#  A     F#-A
I've never felt so good before

F#     A-B     ^C#   ^D-^C#  A  ^C#
This  empty  place  inside  of  me

A  ^C#-A  ^C#
Is   filling  up

A ^C#-A  ^C#-A   ^C#     A-^C#
I   simply   cannot   get   enough

 

A  ^C#  A   ^C#  A  ^C#   A
I   want  it,   oh,   I   want   it

^C# A  ^D ^C#  B  ^C# ^D
Oh,  I  want  it  for  my  own

^C# ^D ^E  ^F#   ^E ^D  ^E  ^F#
I've got to know, I've got to know

^E   ^D   ^E   ^F#   ^E  ^D  ^E    ^F#
What is this place that I have found?

^D     ^E    ^G#
WHAT IS THIS!?
