Music Monday – “Weird Al” Yankovic – Gump (Parody of “Lump”)

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme created and hosted by Drew@TheTattooedBookGeek as an opportunity to share a favourite music video.

This week I’m sharing another parody video from Weird Al. I don’t know the original song, but I love the this spoof of Forest Gump, especially those box of chocolate scenes at the bus stop .

[Verse 1]
Gump sat alone on a bench in the park
“My name is Forrest,” he’d casually remark
Waiting for the bus with his hands in his pockets
He just kept saying life is like a box of chocolates

[Chorus]
He’s Gump, He’s Gump
What’s in his head?
He’s Gump, He’s Gump, He’s Gump
Is he inbred?

[Verse 2]
Gump was a big celebrity
He told JFK that he really had to pee
He never feels too dumb because
His mom always told him stupid is as stupid does

[Chorus]
He’s Gump, He’s Gump
He’s kinda square
He’s Gump, He’s Gump, He’s Gump
What’s with that hair?

[Bridge]
Run… run… run, run, now Forrest
Run… run… run like the wind now
Run… run… run, run, now Forrest
Run… stop!

[Verse 3]
His buddy Bubba was a shrimp-loving man
His friend with no legs he called Lieutenant Dan
His girlfriend Jenny was kind of a slut
He went to the White House, showed LBJ his butt

[Chorus]
He’s Gump, He’s Gump
He’s not too bright
He’s Gump, He’s Gump, He’s Gump
But he’s alright

[Outro]
Is this Gump out of his head?
I think so
Is this Gump really brain dead?
I think so
Did this Gump make lots of bread?
I think so
And that’s all I have to say about that
