notes:
Everyone can name the singer and guitarist of their favorite band
And memorize the drummer's name when they shake his hand
Oh, but nobody knows the name of the guy on bass
It's a strain on the brain when they try to recognize his face

While the singer and guitarist are dancing to the drummer's groove
There's a bass player thumping the strings and he does not move
He is standing in the darkness on stage 'cause there's  nothing to see
No one ever said about him, "That's the kind of player I want to be"

Well, the bass player gets no accolades
No loving fans, no ticker tape parades
You should listen for the sound of low frequencies
It's the bass player's thunder that brings you to your knees
On your knees
To the bass player man

It's not as if I ever wanted to play the bass
But it's hard for me to sing and I don't have a pretty face
So I'm saddled with an instrument that no-one ever thinks about
'Cause the music sounds about the same with the bass or without.

Well, the bass player gets no accolades
No loving fans, no ticker tape parades
You should listen for the sound of low frequencies
It's the bass player's thunder that brings you to your knees
On your knees
To the bass player man
