"Get Up and Jump" as written by Anthony Kiedis and Michael 'flea' Balzary....
Get up and jump, get up and jump
Get up, get up, get up and jump

Jump on up, jump on down
Just jump, a jump, a jump, a jump, a jump around
Jump the day away, jump all over town
'Causes jumpin' is okay in a jumpin' kinda way, hey

Jump a boy, jump a girl, jump a rope, jump for joy
Just don't stop jumpin', keep your heart muscle pumpin'
Hillel be jumpin' on that little baby frumpkin say what, you got a pumpkin in your pants?

When you're just standing or sitting still
Think about the frogs gettin' a thrill
Take a little lesson from the kangaroos
Don't you know they're jumpin' foos, jump you

Jump a nun, jump a Jack, jump for fun, jump back
How's about us jumpin' in the sack and now, it's time for a jump attack

Get up and jump, get up and jump
Get up and jump, get up and jump
Get up and jump, get up and jump
Get up and jump, get up and jump

Jam Bob, Jim Bob, slim Bob boogie
To the tune of slima Billy, lookin' like you're mighty silly
(Say what) you got a pumpkin in your pants (say what) you got a pumpkin in your pants?

Mister Mexican jumpin' bean knows his fun is sqeaky clean
Christ, how'd ya think that he got so clean?
Not from sittin' on his goddamn spleen, get up

Oh, I be jumpin', I be jumpin', I be jumpin' alone
I be jumpin' for the phone I be jumpin' Missus Jones
I really wanna jump on Kinski's bones

Get up and jump, get up and jump
Get up and jump, get up and jump
Get up and jump, get up and jump
Get up and jump, get up and jump

Get up and jump, get up and jump
Get up and jump, get up and jump
Get up and jump, get up and jump
Get up and jump, get up and jump

Jam Bob, Jim Bob, slim Bob boogie to the tune of slima Billy, lookin' like you're mighty silly
(Say what) you got a pumpkin in your pants (say what) you got a pumpkin in your pants?

    General Commentthe title just sums up what the chili peppers want you to do-get up and jump. they say everyone does it and it is fun, so do it yourself. the guitar on this song is just pure hillelfastfunk, just like alot of thier older work which is just so fun and funky

    General Commentthe line about hillel was coz he had a crush on a girl with the surname frumpkin, and anthony wrote this to help him get with her. it was the second song they wrote for the band.

    Torrance. xx.

    General Commentanthony said that whenever someone in the band anted to hook up with a girl, they woudl put her name in a song....so when hille wanted to hook up with some girl with the last name frumpkin anothony wrote the verse:
    Hillel be jumpin on that little baby frumpkin
    say what you got a pumpkin in your pants?
    pumpkin in ur pants refers to Hillel getting 'aroused' by the girl
