A moving feeling within me That I was sitting there demanding a God-given right And my soul became satisfied that I was right in what I was doing At the same time there was something deep down within me Moving me That I could no longer be satisfied or go along with an evil system That I had to be maladjusted to Yet in spite of all of this, I had to keep loving the people Who denied me service Who stared at me

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.
