  • Get up and jump, get up and jump
    Get up, get up, get up and jump

    Jump on up, jump on down
    Just jump, a jump, a jump, a jump, a jump around
    Jump the day away, jump all over town
    'Causes jumpin' is okay in a jumpin' kinda way, hey

    Jump a boy, jump a girl, jump a rope, jump for joy
    Just don't stop jumpin', keep your heart muscle pumpin'
    Hillel be jumpin' on that little baby frumpkin say what, you got a pumpkin in your pants?

    When you're just standing or sitting still
    Think about the frogs gettin' a thrill
    Take a little lesson from the kangaroos
    Don't you know they're jumpin' foos, jump you

    Jump a nun, jump a Jack, jump for fun, jump back
    How's about us jumpin' in the sack and now, it's time for a jump attack

    Get up and jump, get up and jump
    Get up and jump, get up and jump
    Get up and jump, get up and jump
    Get up and jump, get up and jump

    Jam Bob, Jim Bob, slim Bob boogie
    To the tune of slima Billy, lookin' like you're mighty silly
    (Say what) you got a pumpkin in your pants (say what) you got a pumpkin in your pants?

    Mister Mexican jumpin' bean knows his fun is sqeaky clean
    Christ, how'd ya think that he got so clean?
    Not from sittin' on his goddamn spleen, get up

    Oh, I be jumpin', I be jumpin', I be jumpin' alone
    I be jumpin' for the phone I be jumpin' Missus Jones
    I really wanna jump on Kinski's bones

    Get up and jump, get up and jump
    Get up and jump, get up and jump
    Get up and jump, get up and jump
    Get up and jump, get up and jump

    Get up and jump, get up and jump
    Get up and jump, get up and jump
    Get up and jump, get up and jump
    Get up and jump, get up and jump

    Jam Bob, Jim Bob, slim Bob boogie to the tune of slima Billy, lookin' like you're mighty silly
    (Say what) you got a pumpkin in your pants (say what) you got a pumpkin in your pants? Writer/s: ANTHONY KIEDIS, MICHAEL BALZARY
