Victor Wooten – Bass Tribute lyrics

(T. M.) you gotta have something on the bottom if you want to have a
Band
(Will) Gotta have a strong foundation if you gonna make a stand
(Alvin) The bass is center solid as a rock
(Christian) When your body starts moving you know you just can't
Stop
(Vic) It's played with the soul not just with the hands
(John) By the best bass players in the land
(Alvin) When the bass starts thumpin' sho 'nuff hits the spot
(Rhonda) And I hope it never stops

Stanley Clarke, I tip my hat to you
Jaco Pastorius, you know I love you too
Larry Graham, thank you for all you do

Just thumpin' on the bass, just thumpin' on the bass
Ow yeah, I'm just thumpin' on the bass

(Steve) Bass players used tobe the one standing in the back
(Bill) When Jaco first played "Donna Lee", it sho' changed that
(Alvin) When I first saw Stanley Clarke my jaw hit the floor
(Christian) Bootsy Collins playing "Sex Machine" just give me
Some mo'
(T. M.) Larry Graham, thank you man, for playing that thumb
(Gary/John) Louis Johnson, Marcus Miller, you gotta give them
Some
(Oteil) Anthony Jackson, Paul Mccartney, Chuck Rainey, Willie
Weeks
(Rhonda/Alvin) I wanna thank you all for making it speak

Bootsy Collins, I tip my hat to you
Marcus Miller, you know I love you too
James Jamerson, thank you for all you do

Just thumpin' on the bass, just thumpin' on the bass
Ow yeah, I'm just thumpin' on the bass

(Alvin) The bass, the bottom, low down funky nasty,
How low can you go? Bass Line. The Bassment.
Oh yeah.

What would Stanley say if he were here today? (Vic - Stanley bass part)
What would Jaco say if he were here today? (Vic - Jaco bass part)
What would Larry say if he were here today? (Vic - Larry bass part)
What would Bootsy say if he were here today?(T. M. - Bootsy bass part)
What would Marcus say if he were here today?(Vic - Marcus bass part)
What would Rocco say if he were here today?(Steve - Rocco bass part)
Anthony Jackson (Will - Anthony bass part)
Willie Weeks (Vic - Willie bass part)
Ray Brown (Steve - Ray acoustic bass part)
Robert Wilson (Vic - Robert bass part)

Stanley Clarke, I tip my hat to you
Jaco Pastorius, you know I love you too
Larry Graham, thank you for all you do
Everyone, we owe it all to you

And to all the the other masters of the low end
Thanks for doing what you do
We love you and we haven't forgotten
