You gotta have somethin' on the bottom if you want have a band
Gotta have a strong foundation if you gonna make a stand
The bass is the center solid as a rock

When your body starts moving you know you just can't stop
It's played with the soul not just with the hands
By the best bass players in the land

When the bass starts thumpin' sho' 'nuff hits the spot
And I hope it never stops

Stanley Clarke, I tip my hat to you
Jaco Pastorius, you know I love you too
Larry Graham, thank you for all you do

Thumpin' just thumpin' on the bass, just thumpin' on the bass
Auh yeah, I'm just thumpin' on the bass

Bass players used to be the one standin' in the back
When Jaco played, "Donna Lee", it sho' changed that
When I first saw Stanley Clarke, my jaw hit the floor
Auh, Bootsy Collins playin' sex machine baby, just give me some mo'

Larry Graham, thank you man, for playin that thumb
Louis Johnson and Marcus Miller, you gotta give them some
Anthony Jackson, Paul McCartney, Chunk Rainey, Willie Weeks
I wanna thank you all for makin' it speak

Bootsy Collins, I tip my hat to you
Marcus Miller, you know I love you too
James Jamerson, thank you for all you do

Thumpin' just thumpin' on the bass, just thumpin' on the bass
Auh yeah, I'm just thumpin' on the bass

The bass, the bottom, low down funky nasty
How low can you go, bassline, the bassment? Oh yeah

What would Stanley say if he were here today?
What would Jaco say if he were here today?
What would Larry say if he were here today?
What would Bootsy say if he were here today?

What would Marcus say if he were here today?
What would Rocco say if he were here today?
Anthony Jackson, Willie Weeks
Ray Brown (walk that dog) , Robert Wilson (get it, Robert)

Stanley Clarke, I tip my hat to you
Jaco Pastorius, you know I love you too
Larry Graham, thank you for all you do
Everyone, I owe it all to you

Can't ya feel it in your soul?
Let the bass take control
Just thumpin on the bass, the bass, the bass
Can't ya, can't ya feel the bass?
Can you face the bass?
Thumpin' on the bass

And to all the other masters of the low-end
Thanks for doin' what you do
We love you and we haven't forgotten
