I love my Sump

Steve added a new song to our stream this week called Pump My Pumps by Dan Black.  It’s a rather catchy song, but I was having trouble figuring out what the lyrics were other than the obvious “Pump my pumps”.  I could pick out “basement” and “sump”, which was kinda cool – it’s a song about someone who loves his sump pump.  Well, maybe not cool, but it’s different.

Here’s how I thought the chorus went:

I just pump my pumps
Pump them to the floor
As the basement bumps
Pump them to the floor
As the needle jumps
Bump them till I call
Cause I love my sump
I love my sump yeah

Sadly, I was sooooooo wrong.  The reality?

I just pump my pumps
Run ’em on the floor
As the bass bin blows
Run ’em on the floor
As the needle jumps
Run ’em ’til I claw at another slump
Another slump yeah

It’s still a great song, but now it makes more sense.
