Lyrics 

Pump up the jam

Pump it up

While your feet are stomping

And the jam is pumping

Look ahead, the crowd is jumpin’

Pump it up a little more

Get the party goin’ on the dance floor

See, ’cause that’s where the party’s at

And you’d find out if you do that

I don’t want

A place to stay

Get your booty on the floor tonight

Make my day

I don’t want

A place to stay

Get your booty on the floor tonight

Make my day

Make my day

Make my day

Make my day

Make my day

Yo! Pump up the jam

Pump it up

While your feet are stomping

And the jam is pumping

Look ahead, the crowd is jumpin’

Pump it up a little more

Get the party goin’ on the dance floor

See, ’cause that’s where the party’s at

And you’d find out if you do that

I don’t want

A place to stay

Get your booty on the floor tonight

Make my day

I don’t want

A place to stay

Get your booty on the floor tonight

Make my day

Make my day

Make my day

Make my day

Make my day

Make my day

Yo! Pump up the jam

Pump it up

Pump it up

Yo! Pump it!

Pump up the jam

Pump it up

Pump it up

Yo! Pump it

Pump up the jam

Pump it up

Pump it up

Yo! Pump it

Pump up the jam

Pump it

Pump up the jam

Pump up the jam

Pump up the jam

Pump it up

Pump it

Pump it

Pump it

Pump up the jam

Pump up the jam

Pump up the jam

Pump it

Pump up the jam

Pump it up

While your feet are stomping

And the jam is pumping

Look to be exact

Pump it up a little more

Get the party goin’ on the dance floor

See, ’cause that’s where the party’s at

And you’d find out if you do that

I want

A place to stay

Get your booty on the floor tonight

Make my day

I want

A place to stay

Get your booty on the floor tonight

Make my day

Pump up the jam

Pump it up

Pump it up

Yo! Pump it!

Pump up the jam

Pump it up

Pump it up

Yo! Pump up the jam

Pump it up

Pump it up

Yo! Pump it!

Pump up the jam
