Mr. Bass Man
Sha Na Na Lyrics


Ba-ba-ba-bah, ba-ba-bah-ba-bah
Ba-ba-bah-ba-bah, ba-ba-ba-ba-bah-boom ...

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
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-bah
You mean ba-bah-ba-ba-bah, ba-ba-bah-bah-bah

Yeah! Mr. Bass Man, you're on all the songs
With the bip-bip-boom-boom
And the dit-dit-bom-bom-bom
Hey Mr. Bass Man, you're the hidden King of Rock 'n' Roll
Ba-ba-ba-bah, No-no, ba-ba-bah, ba-ba-bah-bah-bah ...

Oh, it don't mean a thing when the lead is singin'
Or when he goes Hi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yah

Hey Mr. Bass Man, I'm askin' just one thing
Will you teach me, mmm, yeah, the way you sing
'Cause Mr. Bass Man, I wanna be a bass man too
Ba-ba-ba-bah
Try this, ba-ba-bah, ba-ba-bah-bah-boom

Oh Mr Bass Man, I really think I'm winnin'
With the bip-bip-boom-boom
And the dit-dit, dit-dit-da-dah
Hey Mr. Bass Man, now I'm a bass man too
Ba-ba-ba-bah
That's it, ba-ba-bah, ba-ba-bah-bah-boom

Ba-ba-boom-boom ...
Now you
Ba-ba-boom-boom ...
With me
Ba-ba-boom-boom ...

Oh, it don't mean a thing when the lead is singin'
Or when he goes "Hi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yah"

Hey Mr. Bass Man, I'm askin' just one thing
Will you teach me, mmm, yeah, the way you sing
'Cause Mr. Bass Man, I wanna be a bass man too
Ba-ba-ba-bah
Try this, ba-ba-bah, ba-ba-bah-bah-boom

Oh Mr Bass Man, I really think I'm winning
With the bip-bip-boom-boom and the dit-dit-bom-bom-bom
Oh Mr. Bass Man, now I'm a bass man too
Ba-ba-ba-bah
That's it, ba-ba-bah, ba-ba-bah-bah-boom
