This one is for the boys with the booming system
Top down, AC with the cooler 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 gotta deal
He pop bottles and he got the right kind of build
He cold, he dope, he might sell Coke
He always in the air, but he never fly coach
He a motherfuckin' 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' for
And yes you'll get slapped if you're lookin' hoe
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 eff 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, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass
He got that super bass
Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass

This one is for the boys in the Polo's
Entrepreneur 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
Yes I did, yes I did,
Somebody please tell him who the eff 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, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass
He got that super bass

    General CommentYou 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/…

    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.

    My InterpretationThis 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.

    General CommentCan 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.

    My OpinionPersonaly, 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.

    Song MeaningThe 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."
