Because you know I'm all about that bass,
'Bout that bass 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass

Yeah it's pretty clear, I ain't no size two
But I can shake it, shake it like I'm supposed to do
'Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
All the right junk in all the right places
I see the magazines working that Photoshop
We know that shit ain't real
Come on now, make it stop
If you got beauty beauty just raise 'em up
'Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top

Yeah, my momma she told me don't worry about your size
She says, boys they like a little more booty to hold at night
You know I won't be no stick figure, silicone Barbie doll,
So, if that's what's you're into
Then go ahead and move along


Because you know I'm all about that bass,
'Bout that bass 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass

I'm bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches Hey
No, I'm just playing I know you think you're fat,
But I'm here to tell you that,
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top
Yeah, my momma she told me don't worry about your size
She says, boys they like a little more booty to hold at night
You know I won't be no stick figure, silicone Barbie doll,
So, if that's what's you're into
Then go ahead and move along

Because you know I'm all about that bass,
'Bout that bass 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass

Because you know I'm all about that bass,
'Bout that bass 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass

Because you know I'm all about that bass,
'Bout that bass 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass,
'bout that bass

    I love this song! Though some people don't. They got the wrong idea about what the song is about, and it's kinda sad, really. Their hating it for all the wrong reasons. Have you seen the YouTube comments lately? "Oh, this is skinny shaming!" And "I can't help that I'm anorexic!" And stuff like that. Anyways, yea, it DOES say, "Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that."But, then it says she was just joking. "Nah, I'm just playin'." People are so butt hurt that there is actually a song, encouraging curvy woman, that they are NOT FAT. And that if a boy only like toothpicks, he can "Go ahead and move along." I mean, this isn't the only song that's about stuff like that, there's Bruno Mars, Just the Way you are, or Selena Gomez, Who Says, or Beautiful, by Cristina Agularia. Or even, less popular, but Video by India Arie. I'm glad there's a song like this, and to all you haters, think what you want to think about her, but I love her.

    This song is just right for me to listen to even though I am 11 I do think I am fat and yet I know it! People tell me that I aint but I know I am. Yet tomorrow at school I will not wear a jacket like I usually do Meghan Trainor is my hero because she let me know that it is not about your size, how much you weigh, or if you are fat! Since I was in 3 grade I told my self I was fat and now I an in 5 grade so that was 2 years of saying I was fat but now I have had enough!

    People can be ridiculous and makes fool out of anyone by their size. The song that was performed by Meghan she put her effort to sing this song pointing out that it's not okay to make some feel shame about their body weight or either their size. People who are judgmental can cause a lot of stress to others that how should they be comfortable with their body.

    Nobody deserves to be treated by judgmental people and they needed a lesson; however reason why it's never okay to judge someone based on their size, appearance of by their looks. In instance why does looks matter to boys/men?
    Mostly girls likes to be attracted by ridiculous guys who wanted to date but never had a chance to date them. People can be insecure and judgmental by becoming insecure about their looks, appearance or size. Don't feel uncomfortable cause they need to know what is the meaning about their size. Everybody comes in all different sizes and they're beautiful. There's no need to judge yourself and judging others just because they're just hurting themselves for being insecure about their size.

    In the song, she talks about everyone being beautiful no matter what size they are. She does not hate on skinny people and even goes so far as to say, 'I know you think you're fat, but I'm here to tell you, every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top'. In now way is she telling people to go out and stuff their faces with whatever they can get their hands on. She's saying that you shouldn't let the opinions of the 'famous magazines' that claim only 'size 2' is sexy, get you down. She's telling everyone to happy with who they are and that they CAN be sexy no matter their weight. That those 'famous magazines' don't have to set the standard for us.

    In the end, she says if you can't appreciate her for who she is, then you can 'move along'. And she's right. Weight doesn't define who we are, it's our character. Many people could take a lesson or two from this song. And the skinny people who are too stupid to read the words which are clearly printed above, shouldn't even bother. If you don't understand it, then don't bother commenting in the first place.

    I think many people are getting the wrong idea here after reading some of the comments. The song isn't supposed to hate on naturally skinny people, or promote obisity. It's just supposed to tell maybe people more overweight that it's okay. You might not have a bikini ready body and that's fine!!It's supposed to laugh at the b*ches that make fun at these people for no reason, not the ones who never dieted and respected the ones who were a bit more chubby. Don't think Meghan Trainer wanted to make an offensive song. After all it is a body image song that is supposed to make people feel better about them self's.
    Now even though this song is really catchy I do think she should have considered rewriting the "tell those skinny b*tches" into something else but hey, the songs a hit and lots of people love it so don't hate.
    I just went on and on rambling on defending Meghan just so I could get my comment to be in the awesome category and probably wasted some of y'all's time eating it so everyone that read/liked this post. I salute you. ;)
    Yours, Serena
