The form is 8 bars long and repeats 4 times for a total of 32 bars and ends on a whole note. Memorize every note and play it up to speed to build endurance and chops.

It's a fine line not to rush, but definitely push forward in the pocket to keep it driving. There are many well used bass lines that you really should know presented here in this one song.
