[Verse 1]

(Hey, baby)

You've really got my tail in a spin

(Hey, baby)

I don't even know where to begin

But, baby, I got

One thing I want you to know

Wherever you go tell me 'cause I'm gonna go

[Chorus]

We found love, oh

So don't fight it

Life is a rollercoaster

Just gotta ride it

I need you, ooh

So stop hiding

Our love is a mystery

Girl, let's get inside it

[Verse 2]

(Hey, baby)

You've really got me flying tonight (flying tonight)

(Hey, sugar, ooh, ooh)

You almost got us punched in a fight

(that's all right)

But, baby you know

The one thing I gotta know (know, know)

Wherever you go tell me 'cos I'm gonna show

[Chorus]

We found love, oh

So don't fight it

Life is a rollercoaster

Just gotta ride it

I need you, ooh

So stop hiding

Our love is a mystery

Girl, let's get inside it

[Bridge]

Listen...

Can't you feel my heart (feel my heart)

Can't you feel my heart (feel my heart)

Can't you take my heart

[Chorus]

We found love, oh

So don't fight it

Life is a Rollercoaster

Just gotta ride it (all night long)

I need you, ooh

So stop hiding

Our love is a mystery

Girl, let's get inside it

[Post-Chorus]

(Oh)

Don't fight it, fight it, fight it

(Na, na, na, na, na)

Don't fight it, fight it, fight it

(Na, na, na, na, na)

Don't fight it, fight it, fight it

(Na, na, na, na, na)

Don't fight it, fight it, fight it

(Na, na, na, na, na)

Don't fight it, fight it, fight it

(Na, na, na, na, na)

(Na, na, na, na, na)

[Outro]

Love is a mystery girl

Let's get inside it

Na, na, na, na, na

How to Read Bass Tab: A Beginner's Guide

1. Understanding the Basics

a. Strings:

Bass tab consists of horizontal lines representing the strings of the bass guitar. The lowest-pitched string (usually the E string) is at the bottom, and the highest-pitched string (usually the G string) is at the top.

b. Numbers:

Numbers on the lines indicate which fret to play on a specific string. For example, if you see "3" on the E string, it means you should press down the third fret on the lowest string.

2. Reading Bass Tab Example

In this tab:

  • Play the note on the 1st fret of the E string.
  • Play the open E string.
  • Play the 3rd fret on the A string.
  • Play the 1st fret on the A string.

        D|-----------------|
        A|---------3-------|
        E|---1-1---1---3---|
    

3. Playing Techniques

a. Hammer-ons and Pull-offs:

Hammer-ons are represented by an "h" (e.g., 5h7 means play the 5th fret and hammer onto the 7th fret). Pull-offs are represented by a "p" (e.g., 7p5 means play the 7th fret and pull off to the 5th fret).

b. Slides:

Slides are often indicated by an "/" or "\\" between two numbers (e.g., 5/7 means slide from the 5th fret to the 7th fret).
