Gump or Gumps may refer to:

Gump (song)

"Gump" is a song by American musical parodist "Weird Al" Yankovic. It is a parody of " Lump" by alternative rock group The Presidents of the United States of America and also parodies the 1994 movie Forrest Gump. It is one of several Yankovic songs describing the events of a movie, such as " Jurassic Park" and " The Saga Begins."

The cover for the single is itself a parody of the Presidents of the United States of America's logo. This is one of Yankovic's shortest album parodies, second only to his remade version of " My Bologna" (a parody of The Knack's " My Sharona"). In the video for this song, Yankovic dons a bald cap. The The Presidents of the United States of America themselves praised the parody and has since often referred to the "Weird Al" song during live performances.
