All around the Mulberry Bush
The monkey chased the weasel.
The monkey thought 'twas all in fun
Pop! goes the weasel.

Johnny's got the whooping cough and
Mary's got the measles
That's the way the money goes
Pop -- goes the weasel!

A penny for a spool of thread
A penny for a needle
That's the way the money goes
Pop -- goes the weasel!

A painter would his lover to paint
He stood before the easel
The monkey jumped all over the paint
Pop -- goes the weasel!

When his sweetheart she did laugh
His temper got so lethal
He tore the painting up in half
Pop -- goes the weasel!

I went to the grocery store
I thought a little cheese'll
Be good to catch a mouse on the floor
Pop -- goes the weasel!
But the mouse was very bright
He wasn't a mouse to wheedle
He took the cheese and said "Good night"
Pop -- goes the weasel!

Up and down the City Road
In and out the Eagle
That's the way the money goes
Pop -- goes the weasel!
Half a pound of tuppenny rice
Half a pound of treacle
Mix it up and make it nice
Pop -- goes the weasel!

Every night when I go out
The monkey's on the table
Take a stick and knock it off
Pop -- goes the weasel!
Put some pepper on its nose
And you'll make it sneeze-l
Catch it fast before it snaps --
Pop -- goes the weasel!

A penny for a cotton ball
A penny for a needle
That's the way the money goes
Pop -- goes the weasel!
If you want to buy a pig
Buy a pig with hairs on
Every hair a penny a pair
Pop -- goes the weasel!

All around the cobbler's bench
The monkey chased the weasel
The monkey thought 'twas all in fun
Pop -- goes the weasel!
I've no time to wait and sigh
I've no time to tease-l
Kiss me quick -- I'm off -- goodbye!
Pop -- goes the weasel!


And from "Robin Hood Prince of Thieves"
There was a man from Nottingham
who tried to cross the river.
Oh, what a joke. He tripped on a rope!
Now look at him shiver!
