Slap That Bass (And Make It Sing, Boy!) (Mixed Styles)

This song is by Erika Paul.

Slap That Bass (And Make It Sing, Boy!)

Words & Music by Erika Paul
From the cd entitled, "Scat's My Bag"

Slap That Bass! Pluck those strings
Bow it with your bow
And Make It Sing, Boy!

The band's biggest guitar
Is called the stand up bass
It makes many sounds
At any volume, at any pace

Slap That Bass! Pluck those strings
Bow it with your bow
And Make It Sing, Boy!

It can sound like a dinosaur singing
Or a huge corn kernal when it pops!
And even more surprising than this
Is when you hear it play double stops

Slap That Bass! Pluck those strings
Bow it with your bow
And Make It Sing, Boy!

Sometimes it lays down the harmony
Sometimes it grooves on the beat
Sometimes it sings like a bird
A bird with REALLY big feet!

Slap That Bass! Pluck those strings
Bow it with your bow
And Make It Sing, Boy!

A bass can get real funky
A bass can really swing
A bass can play it really straight
Just go on and do your own thing!

Slap That Bass! Pluck those strings
Bow it with your bow
And Make It Sing, Boy!
