  • Lump sat alone in a boggy marsh
    Totally emotionless except for her heart
    Mud flowed up into lump's pajamas
    She totally confused all the passing piranhas

    She's lump, she's lump
    She's in my head
    She's lump, she's lump, she's lump
    She might be dead

    Lump lingered last in line for brains
    And the one she got was sorta rotten and insane
    Small things so sad that birds could land
    Is lump fast asleep or rockin' out with the band?

    She's lump, she's lump
    She's in my head
    She's lump, she's lump, she's lump
    She might be dead

    Lump was limp and lonely and needed a shove
    Lump slipped on a kiss and tumbled into love
    She spent her twenties between the sheets
    And life limped along at sub-sonic speeds

    She's lump, she's lump
    She's in my head
    She's lump, she's lump, she's lump
    She might be dead

    Is this lump outta my head?
    I think so
    Is this lump outta my head?
    I think so
    Is this lump outta my head?
    I think so
    Is this lump outta my head? Writer/s: Chris Ballew, David Michael Dederer, Jason S. Finn

  • Megan from Stevenson, AlOMG!!! I love this song! Totally grew up to these guys!
  • Adrian from Houston, United Kingdom"Weird Al" Yankovic made a parody of this song called, "Gump"
  • Bertrand from Paris, FranceIn the onslaught of Seattle bands after the grunge revolution, the humorous approach of Presidents Of the United States Of America is unique. "Lump" is punk in instrumental style, but it is as insanely catchy as bubblegum pop.
