This week’s prompt is ‘jump,’ and I really had no clue which songs in my collection would feature this word. I could only think of Kris Kross’ Jump. The other thing that came to mind was when the artist, any artist really, is rousing the public into applauding and jumping. But that’s not part of the lyrics, so it doesn’t count.

A quick search brought me to Rihanna’s song ‘Jump.’ To my surprise, a large part of the song is a remix of Ginuwine‘s Pony, which is one of my favourite R&B songs of all time.
What I love about Rihanna’s version are the beats and the overall music. I don’t listen to such music a lot, but it can definitely make for a nice change.

The video contains swearing.

Jump

Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump
Tell me that you love me when you know you don’t love
But I guess I guess I guess is all good
You can play the game, I’mma still do my thang
Ain’t no better way for it to be put
When you fuck them other girls I bet they be wondering why you always call my name
You think I’m gonna wait around
I ain’t got all day
You don’t need another lover
Don’t you let it go
I already got it covered, let the others know
If you want it let’s do it
Ride it, my pony, my saddle
Is waitin’, come and, jump on it
If you want it let’s do it
Ride it, my pony, my saddle
Is waitin’, come and, jump on it
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump
Think I give a damn boy don’t you know who I am
I ain’t runnin’ ’round kissing no dude
Think somebody else like me gon’ come around
Boy you got it misunderstood
Put it in your face but you wreckin’ us yet
Like you can’t recognize a good thing
Now that you got a chance
Tell me what it’s gon’ be?
You don’t need another lover
Don’t you let it go
I already got it covered, let the others know
If you want it let’s do it
Ride it, my pony, my saddle
Is waitin’, come and, jump on it
If you want it let’s do it
Ride it, my pony, my saddle
Is waitin’, come and, jump on it
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump
You say it’s my fault, OK I get it
You ain’t pick up your calls, I’m like forget it
See you put up your wall
You know you did it, the rise and the fall, just admit it
You say it’s my fault, okay I get it
You ain’t answer your calls, I’m like forget it
It’s the the rise and the fall
It’s the the rise and the fall
And you could have had it all
If you want it let’s do it
Ride it, my pony, my saddle
Is waitin’, come and, jump on it
If you want it let’s do it
Ride it, my pony, my saddle
Is waitin’, come and, jump on it
Jump, jump, jump on it
Jump, jump, jump on it
Jump, jump, jump on it
Jump on it, jump on it
Jump, jump, jump on it
Jump, jump, jump on it
Jump, jump, jump on it
Jump on it, jump on it
