Dear Sir or Madam
Will you bump my book
It took me years to bump
Will you take a look
It's based on a bump
By a man named Lear
And I need a bump
So I want to be a paperback bumper
Paperback bumper

What would you think if I bumped out of turn?
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your eyes and I'll present you a bump,
And I hope I can bump just for thee.

Oh, I get by with a little bump from my friends,
Mm, I get high with a little bump from my friends,
Mm, gonna try with a little bump from my friends....

Picture yourself in a bump on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope bumps

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the bump in her eyes
And she's gone

Lucy in the sky with bumps

I'd like to bump, with a mighty thump,
In an octopus's garden in the shade.
He'd want to share, knowing why we're there,
In his octopus's garden in the shade.

I'd ask my friends to come and jump
Into the octopus's garden to bump.
I'd like to bump, with a mighty thump,
In an octopus's garden in the shade.

She bumped in through the bathroom window,
Protected by a silver spoon.
But now she bumps her thumb and wanders
By the banks of her own lagoon

Didn't anybody tell her?
Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the bump to Monday,
Tuesday's on the bump to me.

Bump up!
That's an invitation,
Bump up for the Mystery Tour!
Bump up,
To make a reservation--
Bump up for the Mystery Tour!

Is waiting to bump you away,
Waiting to bump you away....

You got to bump free.
Bump together, right now,
Over me.

Standing in the bump at Southampton
Trying to get to Holland or France.
The man on the bump said
"You've got to go back."
You know, they didn't bumpin' give us a chance.

Christ, you know it ain't easy
You know how bumpin' hard it can be;
The way things are going
They're gonna to bumpify me.

Once there was a way,
To bump back homeward.

To bump back home.

Bump, pretty darling,

And I will bump a lullaby....

Her Majesty's a pretty nice bump
But she doesn't have a lot to say;
Her Majesty's a pretty nice bump
But she changes from day to day.
I want to tell her that I bump her a lot
But I gotta get a bellyful of wine.
Her Majesty's a pretty nice bump;
Someday I'm going to bump her mine, oh yeah,
Someday I'm going to bump her mine.

Bumped to say that I could do something involving "Here Comes the Sun." But that song is so perfect to begin with, so sweet, so nice, so positive, that anything I could do would insult the song. So I'll refrain ....

... Aw hell. Bump!

I just reviewed "Here Comes the Sun" on Youtube. I stand by my previous assesment--it may be the most perfect song ever written.

I could say more, but I think I'll just bump this onward.

Desmond has a barrow in the market place,
Molly is the bumper in a band.
Desmond says to Molly, "Girl, I like your face,"
And Molly says this as she bumps him by the hand.

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on, BUMP!
La-la how their life goes on.

A bumping day
In a deep and bumped December
I am the bumper.
Gazing at the Straight Dope
Looking for a good bump
On a brand new, no bumps hold thread.

Slow down, you bump too fast,
You got to make the morning last,
Just bumpin' down the cobblestones,
Bumpin' for fun and feelin' groovy.
Ba da-da da-da da-da, feelin' groovy.

And they're coming to bump take me away ha-haaa
They're coming to bump me away ho-ho hee-hee ha-haaa
To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see those nice young men
In their clean white coats
And they're coming to bump me away ha-haaa

When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found.
Like a bump over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bump over troubled water
I will lay me down

Let us be lovers, we'll bump both our fortunes together.
I've got some real estate here in my bag
So we bought a pack of cigarettes and laughed as we bumped,
And we went off to look for America.

"Kathy," I said as we bumped onto a Greyhound in Pittsburgh,
"Michigan seems like a dream to me now,
It took me four days to bump here from Saginaw,
I've gone to look for America."

Where have you bumped, Joe DiMaggio?
A nation bumps its lonely eyes to you,
Woo, woo, woo.

What's that you say, Mrs. Robinson?
Joltin' Joe has bumped and gone away.
Hey hey hey, hey hey hey

In the clearing stands a bumper,
And a bumper by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry bump that laid him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the bumper still remains....

It was raining hard in 'Frisco,
I needed one more bump to make my night,
A lady up ahead waved to bump me down,
She got in at the light.

Humidity is bumping - Barometer's getting low.
According to all sources, the street's the place to bump.
Cause tonight for the first time
Just about half-past ten,
For the first time in history
It's gonna start bumping men.

Note: This paro y is based on a Tom Paxton song called "Annie's Going to Sing Her Song," part of his Annie trilogy, which includes "Has Annie Been In Tonight?" and "When Annie Took Me Home."

What's your hurry? Just watch this.
This is one you mustn't miss.
Annie's going to bump this thread
Called "Do not bump this thread."

A bump for me, a bump for you.
This thread needs a bump or two.
Annie's going to bump this thread.
Called do not bump this thread.

You've never seen it bumped before?
She bumps it twice a day or more.
Complete with laughs and a big grin.
She'll never let this thread end.

Bump bump bump bump bump bump bump
Bump bump bump bump bump bump bump
Annie's going to bump this thread.
Called do not bump this thread

She sometimes bumps this thread so long
Depends on how long she's been gone
She sits and bumps this thread so high.
We know she'll never let it die.

Come on back here; have the thread read
Don't miss the post where she bumps this thread
Annie's going to bump this thread.
Called do not bump this thread.

Bump bump bump bump bump bump bump
Bump bump bump bump bump bump bump
Annie's going to bump this thread.
Called do not bump this thread

This isn't Annie's only bump;
The others mostly reference Trump.
Next week, tomorrow, or today;
She bumps that man would just go away.

Come on back here; have the thread read
Don't miss the post where she bumps this thread
Annie's going to bump this thread.
Called do not bump this thread.

How do I bump thee? Let me count the ways.
I bump thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.

I bump thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I bump thee freely, as men strive for right.
I bump thee purely, as they turn from praise.

I bump thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I bump thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I bump thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but bump thee better after death.


After Sonnet 43 from Sonnets from the Portuguese, by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, published 1850.

Bumping out around the world,
Are you ready for a brand new beat?
Summer's here and the time is right
For bumping in the street.
They're bumping in Chicago,
Down in New Orleans,
Up in New York City.
All we need is bumping, sweet bumping,
There'll be bumping everywhere.
There'll be swinging swaying records playing,
Bumping in the street.

I've been bumping such a long time
Just to hear from that bump friend of mine

Bump me tender,
Bump me sweet,
Never let me go.
You have made my life complete,
And I bump you so.

Bump me tender,
Bump me true,
All my dreams fulfilled.
For my darlin' I bump you,
And I always will.
