I've heard two different people complaining this week about the subject matter in the song "Pumped Up Kicks" - so I decided to rock a few solid alternates.

I re-wrote the lyrics for my pet:

All the other pets with their pumped-up jets
You better run, better run, outrun my bun
All the other pets with their pumped-up jets
You better run, better run, faster than my rabbit


I feel better about the song that way, and it does wonders for his self-esteem.

If nothing else, this certainly does underline exactly the validity and artistic integrity of the original.

"All you little kids with the pumped up kicks
better run, better run run
faster than my church group."

Very funny.
