We steered our ship to the Sea of all Tranquility The only sound our voices, as star-struck we fly Our hopes ever high That the songs we sing and the words we bring Should never die
We set our sights on the Sea of all Tranquility Our pointless flight betraying now fallen we are (Gods of old now broken and defaced) Compared to a star And the final reach to that barren beach Is much too far
Yesterday our songs of glory shone A dream of ages every one We sold our souls for senseless gain And brought our harvest home in vain (Above the seven seas is one)
Yesterday our songs of glory shone A dream of ages every one We sold our souls for senseless gain And brought our harvest home in vain

Meghan Trainor and her producer Kevin Kadish originally wrote "All About That Bass" for another artist to record. However, after Epic Records boss LA Reid heard Meghan play a demo of the song on a ukulele, he signed the young songwriter to his label and told her she should sing it.
