Mr. Bass Man (Album Version)

Mr. Bass Man (Album Version)

John Entwistle

(Bop-bop-bop singing by bass voice)
Mr Bass Man, you've got that certain somethin'
Mr Bass Man, you set that music thumpin'
To you it's easy when you go 1-2-3, d-d-be-bop-a-bop
(You mean be-be-BOP-p-p-bop bop bop)

Mr Bass Man, you're on all the songs
Be-did-did-a-boom-boom, be-dit-dit-a-boom-boom-bom
Hey Mr Bass Man, you're the hidden King of Rock 'n' Roll, d-d-be-bop-a-bop
(No no, be-be-BOP-p-p-bop bop bop)

It don't mean a thing when the lead is singin'
Or when he goes "Hi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yah"
Mr Bass Man, I'm askin' just one thing,
Will you teach me? Yeah, the way you sing?
'Cause Mr Bass Man, I wanna be a bass man too, d-d-be-bop-a-bop
(Try this, be-be-BOP-p-p-bop bop bop)
Mr Bass Man, I think I'm really with it
Be-did-did-a-boom-boom, a-boom-boom-be-dit-dit-dit-dit
Oh, Mr Bass Man, now I'm a bass man too, d-d-be-bop-a-bop
(That's it, be-be-BOP-p-p-bop bop bop)
(Scat bass duet between John & bass voice)

It don't mean a thing when the lead is singin'
Or when he goes "Hi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yah"
Mr Bass Man, I'm askin' just one thing,
Will you teach me? Yeah, the way you sing?
'Cause Mr Bass Man, I wanna be a bass man too, d-d-be-bop-a-bop
(Try this, be-be-BOP-p-p-bop bop bop)

Mr Bass Man, I think I'm really with it
Be-did-did-a-boom-boom, a-boom-boom-be-dit-dit-dit-dit
C'mon, Mr Bass Man, now I'm a bass man too, d-d-be-bop-a-bop
(Getting good, be-be-BOP-p-p-bop bop bop)
