And a di di di boom boom bong.
Hey, Mr. Bass Man, you're the hidden king of rock'n'roll.
B: No, no, b-b-ba-b-b-ba-b-ba-b-ba-ba-ba.

L: It don't mean a thing when the lead is singing,
Or when he goes "I-i-i-i-i-i".
B: Yeah.

L: Hey, Mr. Bass Man, I'm asking just one thing.
Will you teach me, hmmm yeah, the way you sing?
'Cause Mr. Bass Man, I wanna be a bass man too.
B: Try this, b-b-ba-b-b-ba-b-ba-b-ba-ba-ba.

L: Hey, Mr. Bass Man, I think I'm really with it,
With a di di di boom boom
And a boom boom, a, di di di di.
C'mon, Mr. Bass Man, now I'm a bass man too.
