Lyrics

Rachel:
Hey heart on the road again
Moving on forward
Sticks and stones won't break our bones
We're in the car on the highway
It's a magical feeling that no one's got a hold
You're a catalyst to your happiness you know

Rachel with Blaine and Santana:
This is your heart, it's alive
It's pumpin blood
And it's your heart, it's alive
It's pumpin blood

And the whole wide world is whistling
And it's whistling

Rachel:
Hey heart on the run again
Driving strong onward
Sticks and stones won't take its course
Got the part in the front seat

It's the best and worst feeling
Like nothing can go wrong
Yeah you're the decider of the world
That you will get to know

Rachel with Blaine and Santana:
Cause it's your heart, it's alive
It's pumpin blood
And it's your heart, it's alive
It's pumpin blood

And the whole wide world is whistling

Rachel with Kurt and Santana:
Hey heart on the road again
On the highway, on the highway
Hey heart on the road again
On the highway, on the highway

Rachel with Blaine and Santana:
Cause it's your heart, it's alive
It's pumpin blood
And it's your heart, it's alive
It's pumpin blood

And the whole wide world is whistling (Mercedes: Oh, ooh)

Rachel:
It's whistling (Mercedes: It's whistling)
It's whistling (Mercedes: Oh, ooh)
It's whistling

Rachel with Alumni:
And the whole wide world is whistling

Trivia

  • The entire gay bar scene, including Pumpin Blood, was a homage to an earlier musical, Lauren Bacall's 1970's Applause. This video, a clip taken from Applause, shows the similarities between Applause and the Glee scene.
  • Mark Kanemura and Jeremy Hudson (former Lady Gaga dancers) are part of the performance.
