Super Bass Lyrics

This one is for the boys with the boomin' system,
Top down, AC with the coolin' system...
When he come up in the club, he be blazin' up;
Got stacks on deck like he savin' up,
And he ill, he real, he might got a deal;
He pop bottles, and he got the right kind of bill...
He cold, he dope, he might sell coke;
He always in the air, but he never fly coach...
He a muthafuckin trip, trip, sailor of the ship, ship;
When he make it drip, drip kiss him on the lip, lip...
That's the kind of dude I was lookin' fo'.
And yes, you'll get slapped if you're lookin', ho!
I said, "Excuse me, you're a hell of a guy;
I mean my, my, my, my, you're like pelican fly!
I mean, you're so shy, and I'm loving your tie;
You're like slicker than the guy with the thing on his eye, oh!"
Yes, I did, yes, I did;
Somebody please tell him who the F I is;
I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up,
Back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up...

Boy, you got my heartbeat runnin' away;
Beating like a drum, and it's coming your way...
Can't you hear that boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass? (He got that super bass!)
Boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass! (Yeah, that's that super bass!)
Boom, boom, boom, boom (Young Money), boom, boom, boom, boom...
Boom, boom, boom, bass, boom, boom, boom, boom...
Can't you hear that boom-badoom-boom, boom-badoom-boom, bass? (He got that super bass!)
Boom-boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass! (Yeah, that's that super bass!)

This one is for the boys in the Polos;
Entrepeneur niggas, and the moguls...
He could ball with the crew, he could solo,
But I think I like him better when he dolo!
And I think I like him better with the fitted cap on;
He ain't even gotta try to put the mack on!
He just gotta give me that look;
When he give me that look, then the panties comin' off, off, uh...
Excuse me, you're a hell of a guy;
You know, I really got a thing for American guys...
I mean... sigh. Sickenin' eyes;
I can tell that you're in touch with your feminine side, uh!
Yes, I did, yes, I did;
Somebody please tell him who the F I is;
I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up,
Back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up...

Boy, you got my heartbeat runnin' away;
Beating like a drum and it's coming your way...
Can't you hear that boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass? (He got that super bass!)
Boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass! (Yeah, that's that super bass!)
Boom, boom, boom, boom (Young Money), boom, boom, boom, boom...
Boom, boom, boom, bass, boom, boom, boom, boom...
Can't you hear that boom-badoom-boom, boom-badoom-boom, bass? (He got that super bass!)
Boom-boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass! (Yeah, that's that super bass!)

See, I need you in my life for me to stay;
No, no, no, no, no, I know you'll stay...
No, no, no, no, no, don't go away...
Boy, you got my heartbeat runnin' away;
Don't you hear that heartbeat comin' your way?
Oh, it be like, "Boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass"...
Can't you hear that boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass?

Boy, you got my heartbeat runnin' away;
Beating like a drum, and it's coming your way...
Can't you hear that boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass? (He got that super bass!)
Boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass! (Yeah, that's that super bass!)
Boom, boom, boom, boom (Young Money), boom, boom, boom, boom...
Boom, boom, boom, bass, boom, boom, boom, boom...
Can't you hear that boom-badoom-boom, boom-badoom-boom, bass? (He got that super bass!)

Super bass = Superb ass.

You are probably trolling but...

If you've ever lived in an apartment you know this all too well. It's late at night and you hear rhythmic thumping from someone that's put an expensive sound system in their car. boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass

Sub-bass energy is popular in dance music and dub reggae, where the low frequencies involve energy from the kick drum, the bass guitar and electronic synthesizers. Other genres such as dubstep or drum and bass often feature the whole bass-line reproduced in sub-bass frequencies. Much experimental music uses sub-bass, in particular drone music, where the majority of the sound can often be in the sub-bass range. Often, hip hop and rap songs feature much sub-bass. Songs like this, that make liberal use of sub-bass are generally given the term of "bass song."

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sub_bass

As for the "pelican fly" phrase, Urban Dictionary has this:

When you are completely wasted/high stoned to the point of totally losing it. Can only really reach "pelican fly" on cocaine, amphetamines. E, LSD. But some people can reach it on marijuana. Origins from the film "Scarface." Al Paccino is sitting in a bath watching TV and sees a pair of flamingoes flying and says : "Hey Manny look at it .. Pelican fly come on pelican." Man I smoked some really strong weed and was "pelican fly."

..So maybe that's what she's trying to express.

Slicker than the guy with the thing on his eye = Slick Rick

...the rest should add up now.

**ErezMA is probably trolling but...

Pretty standard mainstream stuff. Attraction to cocaine dealers, automatically spreading legs, yep.

My Opinion

This song is definitely about Hitler. Whether it's admiration or fear is debatable. Look here: "This one is for the boys with the boomin' system" Already, we see a reference to his effective economic plan for Germany, which she seems to admire. "Top down, AC, with the coolin' system" But she turns around with this, which comments on the comfort he provided himself while ordering... "When he come up in the club, he be blazin' up" ...that's correct, the Holocaust. "Blazing up" being the burning of bodies. "Stacks on deck like he savin' up" Stacks of corpses in mass graves. A pretty clear one. "And he ill, he real, he might got a deal" This is one of those lines wherein lies either admiration or fear. "Ill" has become something of a slang term for something perceived as enjoyable, "cool". being "real" is also something to be respected. "he might got a deal" has disturbing grammar for a reason. The line and grammar both represent her indecision and confusion about admiring him or not. "...he got the right kind of build" Hitler was popular with the help of his charisma, charm and look. Or, "the right kind of build." "He cold, he dope, he might sell coke" This line may represent her resentment of admiring someone who may be less than reputable. "He always in the air, but he never fly coach He a muthaf***in' trip, trip, sailor of the ship, ship" She is praising his military work in these lines.

The entire chorus is her either describing her inability to hold back her love, or her fear of the surrounding war, hence the onomatopoeia.

"This one is for the boys in the Polos Entrepreneur niggas, and the moguls He could ball with the crew, he could solo But I think I like him better when he dolo" She shows appreciation for the SS and Hitler together and separate. I don't have a scrotehair of an idea what "dolo" means.

My Interpretation

Can someone please tell me what this all means? What is a Pelican Fly? I understand pelicans can fly, but that's not likely what they're referencing and as far as the name, Super Bass? What does this song have to do with bass? They're not referencing any fish, or the bass guitar instrument and I highly doubt bass has any significant instrumental portion to this song... or what they pass off as a song. This is a terrible song... I much prefer Rebecca Black.

she is just saying that he is really fly as in the cool type of fly, like if I said your ice cold im implyng that really crule, and the name refers to her heart beat "you got my heartbeat runnin' away; Beating like a drum and it's coming your way... Can't you hear that boom, badoom-boom, boom, badoom-boom, bass? (He got that super bass!"

A pelican is a bird, not a fly. This also still has nothing to do with a bass. There is no bass component to this song nor are there any mentions of the bass instrument.

I thought this was extremely obvious, but she is comparing her racing heartbeat with the sound of bass. She's a talented rapper and she isn't any less of one just because you couldn't figure out what her song was about. Go comment on some old rock music or something if your just going to be critical of popular artists.

I always feel this song is a love song. Yes, there's all the shallow sounding lyrics about guys with lots of money and expensive cars. But the way I see it, she's talking about a particular, shy and clever fellow that she's in love with because they are compatible. The 'Super bass' (to me) is the heartbeat you get when in love. The whole second lyric, to me, is her saying that, although she has guys after her all the time, trying really hard and 'putting the mack on', she prefers the guy she's with.

It's Love, rap-style.

My Opinion

"When he come up in the club he be blazin up Got stacks on get like he savin up And he real, he ill, might got a deal He pop bottles and he got the right kinda build He cold, he dope, he might sell coke He always in the air, but he never fly coach"

Really romantic. "Love, rap-style" indeed.

That's a really beautiful way to describe this song, and I can agree with you that the lyrics can totally say that. Although, if you watch the musicvideo, it sends out a totally different message. In my opinion.

An error occured.

Personaly, I don't like this type of music, but it's not the sound nor her voice that bugs me. It's just the musicvideo. Always talking about that us women shouldn't be seen as sexobjects and all I can see in her musicvideo is boobs and unbuttoned shorts. Also, that every single man in that musicvideo has these extreme abs, which kind of looks like brains sticking out of their stomaches.

I kind of hate the musicvideo. Just my opinion.

My Opinion

i personally like how you describe abs.. lol

An error occured.

this needs more comments. such a catchy beat. i think it's "the right kind of build"

lmfao

I hear "ain't that that super bass" instead of "he's got that super bass" in the chorus.

Lyric Correction
An error occured.

The song means "That male of the species H. Sapiens Sapiens who I have just observed in this venue is dominant, well-endowed in both status and resources, and quite aesthetically pleasing. This has lead to a marked increase in cardiovascular activity due to sexual arousal."

Song Meaning

And...?this statement is quite incomplete. Interesting if more developed.

Just kidding.but cardiovascular status and sexual status? Haha I get it... Evolution is primal.boom boom bang lol cuz the bass says so!
