about

For energy, I wanted something with a really strong medium-fast beat,
like a club/dance song. I'd noticed before that there are a bunch of
club/dance songs with the theme "turn up the volume" or "pump up the
volume" but as far as I know, nobody's ever written one with the
opposite theme of "turn it down, some of us are trying to sleep and/or
study!" So that's what I did.

lyrics

Pump down the volume
It's hard to talk in here!
Pump down the volume
Don't want to damage my ear
Turn down the music
Like I already told you
Turn down the music!
That shit is getting old
If I could be so bold to tell you
It's hard to talk in here
It's hard to talk in here
It's hard to talk!

Pump down the volume -
You heard what I said
Pump down the volume;
You ought to be in bed
Turn down the music
'cause it's a little loud
Turn down the music
I bet you're pretty proud
Of waking up the neighbors
It's hard to talk in here!
It's hard to talk in here
It's hard to talk!

[breakdown with voiceover]

Pump down the volume
Pump down the volume
Now!
