The Lyrics

Because I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, bass… bass… bass… bass…

Yeah it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no John Paul
But I can pluck it, pluck it, while fans give it their all
‘Cause we got a gig, where everyone will flock
And we must rush like flies, or perform just like chalk

I see that amplifier sittin’ over there
We know this stuff ain’t cheap, hey roadies, handle it with care
If you got talent, talent, just do your best
‘Cause we’ve got more tours scheduled from the east to the west

Yeah my band mates they told me, “you gotta practice your chords”
They said, “Bassists need a little more time to master the scores”
You know I won’t be no simpleton plunking hillbilly
So if that’s what they’re needing, then I’ll do my best to play along

Because I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass…Hey!

I’m jamming four strings here
Go ‘head and tell them fangirls that
Yes, I’m just jamming, I know they want a pat
But I’m here to tell you
We’ve got more tours scheduled from the east to the west

Yeah my band mates they told me, “you gotta practice your chords”
They said, “Bassists need a little more time to master the scores”
You know I won’t be no simpleton plunking hillbilly
So if that’s what they’re needing, then I’ll do my best to play along

Because I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass…

Because I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass…

Because I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass, for the band
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass…Hey!
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass…Hey!
I’ve gotta tune the bass
Tune the bass
Hey!
Yeah yeah… ohh… You know I love my bass… Hey…
