Meanings of "Cover all the bases"


To cover all of the bases means to deal with, or hope to deal with something thoughly. To plan for any action, at any angle (perspective).
It comes from baseball jargon, meaning to have a defensive man at every base in case the play (action) is there. There are first base, second base, third base, and home plate (it too is a base).

"Cover all the bases" in lyrics

The Silencers (USA) - Stolen Faces

I see some people
Dinin', dancin', using up your graces
In-house beatings cover all of the bases
Private lives exposed to mutations

Nuclear Bubble Wrap - Inyourendo

And from that point on, the conversation will go south
So experiment a bit and then you will be on a roll
You've gotta cover all the bases and fill up all the holes
