"Born Slippy" is a single by British electronic group Underworld. It was released in January 1995 as a single, and has never appeared on an album by the group. The track is instrumental and features no lyrics. It is separate to the track "Born Slippy .NUXX", which appeared on the soundtrack to the film Trainspotting.

The single peaked on the UK Singles Chart during 1995 at #52.[1] The song title comes from the name of a greyhound which the band had bet on and won.[2]

The song was reissued in 2015, on the four disc Super Deluxe reissue of Underworld's 1995 album Second Toughest in the Infants (where it was listed as "Born Slippy (original instrumental version)"). The ".TEL EMATIC" version remains exclusive to this single.
