Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?

Life is a cigarette, you smoke to the end,
But if you rocket the middle bit,
Then you burn all your friends,
The wider your eyes, the bigger the lies, yes it's true,

Can you hear us pumping on your stereo?
Can you hear us pumping on your stereo?

Take a look through your window now,
You're all alone on the road,
Well you'll burn all your bridges down,
And now you're losing control,
The wider your eyes, the bigger the lies, yes it's true,
If you make a mistake where you couldn't
Relate to your groove, (yes, that's true)

Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?

Well now that I've met you,
And I love you as a friend,
Yeah but your love is mogadon,
Love is the end,
Well, the wider your eyes, the bigger the lies, yes it's true,
If you make a mistake well you couldn't relate to your groove, yes it's true,

Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?
Can you hear us humping on your stereo?

    has the person who put these lyrics on not thought that as the title is 'PUMPING on your stereo' that the lyrics might say the same, instead of HUMPING on your stereo? great song though

    Seriously, listen to it. I'd swear that at points they are genuinely saying 'humping'.

    If you ever see them singing the song and readlip they say humping about fifty percent of the time, Gaz and Mick keep their lips open when it's humping but shut them before the "p" in pumping.

    No, I wasn't the one to discover this, but after someone told me I checked it out.

    It's likely that the line "life is a cigarette" and that paragraph is inspired by a poem by a Spanish poet named Manuel Machado, which has an opening line that translates as that.

    :) I made such a connection when I read that the Bowie song "Rock N' Roll Suicide" was inspired by this poem, but in a less obvious way. So maybe in fact Supergrass were informed by Bowie rather than directly inspired by the poet.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
Album art
Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
