All About That Bass Lyrics

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

Yeah it's pretty clear, I...

    I know that most girls are trying to be nicer than most people are on this site talking about what they think Meghan is trying
    to say

    I think it means that its okay to be fat because someone will eventually fall in love with you.

    The post below is getting a low rating but only a few key words were changed from one extreme to the other big/small, skinny/fat stick figure/whale, more/less........ maybe it is the spelling? "Skinney"??

    size two - twenty-two
    boom boom - tight tush
    junk - stuff
    little "more" booty - little "tight" booty
    stick figure silicone Barbie doll - whale, Moby Dick tale
    sexy - booty
    skinny - fat
    fat - skinny

    All the nice things in the song are still there but just changing these few key words and the song is negative?

    I changed a few words around so I guess it still means that you are perfect......... I'm sure no one will be offended.

    Yeah, it's pretty clear, I ain't no size twenty-two
    But I can move it, move it, like I'm supposed to do
    'Cause I got that tight tush that all the boys chase
    And all the right stuff in all the right places
    I see the magazine workin' 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 mama she told me "don't worry about your size"
    She says, "Boys like a little tight booty to hold at night"
    You know I won't be no whale, Moby Dick tale
    So if thats what you're into, then go 'head and move along
    I'm bringing sexy back
    Go 'head and tell them fat bitches that
    No, I'm just playing, I know you think you're skinney
    But I'm here to tell you...
    Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top
    Yeah my mama she told me, "don't worry about your size"
    She says, "Boys like a little tight booty to hold at night"
    You know I won't be no whale, Moby Dick tale
    So if that's what you're into, then go 'head and move along

    Very positive I think.

    Being fat is a disease. You will get sick younger. You will get arthritis younger. You will die younger. You will be a burden on your family. You will be a burden on society.

    You don't have to be a silicone Barbie doll to be loved or have relationships and stuff with guys.

    Initially when I heard this song I thought what a great, positive message to send to women. However, as I really listen to the lyrics, she's still pitting one size or body type up against the other. Yes she says she's joking when she call the girls skinny bitches, but she also calls thinner girls "stick figure silicone Barbie dolls". I think it's a beautiful thing to love the skin you're in, but not when you have to tear someone else down to do it. Clearly she's not comfortable in her skin it she wouldn't feel the need ridicule anyone with a higher metabolism than her. Why is it socially acceptable for larger people to make fun of thinner people. But if thinner people make fun if larger people it's mean and insensitive? That knife cuts both ways.

    Bass = Big Ass.

    I think the skinny silicone Barbie doll is referring to those girls who have eating disorders or are under the knife just to be "pretty". The ones who are killing themselves to match an image in a magazine. I do not think she is referring to the girls who are genetically thin.

    I think she's talking about booty meaning (smoking crack) as bass is (Charlie that hadn't been cut so you don't need to buy three rocks of crack if it's uncut) no treble
    it's all about that bass no treble you could have the biggest piece of crack but if it's been cut to many times it's no good as in my muma told me don't worry about your size if it's good crack. people selling crack are known as shotters as in selling lots she says you see them magazine's as in machine gun shoting lots at once working that photo shop people selling it and the people lighting the crack as in a quick flash of your lighter you know that shit ain't real come on now make it stop selling crack that's cut too much I won't be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll (as in its a silly con fake crack cut to much people that smoke that live on the dole) also in the video there's a woman dressed in a seethrough dress as they wrap the crack in cling film it looks bigger as in before and after in the video

    That's my interpretation

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    It's a song intended for women who don't fit into the stereotypical skinny Barbie body to feel good about themselves. "Bass" is not intended to be the word "ass"; but instead a metaphor for women who are curvier. As is "treble" for women who do fit into the so called Barbie mold that the media proclaims as the epitome of beauty.
    Be Proud of your body!
    And I'm sorry if the skinny girls get offended, but ya'll have enough media telling you to be proud of your bodies. And I understand about body type disadvantages. My hips are set so wide that no matter how much weight I lose to try and fit the mold, I will still have a black girl booty on a white girl body.

    this song is not about u r perfect the way you are. It is about saying that men only like you if u have a big ass. She tries to cover it up and make people think that the message is that everybody is perfect. The message is that skinny people r bitches. "im gonna shake it shake it like im supposed to do" she is saying that she has an ass to twerk, show off and get guys with

    I believe she is purposely trying to diss skinny girls. She is saying its okay to be fat, don't worry about it. I get her point on saying everyone is perfect, but you cant turn back around and say "boys like a little more booty" and "skinny bitches" and "silicone Barbie doll". that's just my opinion. I'm naturally skinny and it hurts just as much when you hear stuff about being skinny just like it hurts when heavier people hear jokes. I just think she needs to be clearer on her message. I love the song besides that.

    I think this sing is using "bass" as a way of hiding the word "@ss". The song is clearly talking about "booty" and not worrying about your "[boob] size". Trainer is trying to encourage girls with booty size. Plus, try entering the a-word everytime she says "bass" and it makes sense.
