Pop Goes the Weasel Lyrics

Here are the lyrics to “Pop Goes the Weasel,” a traditional nursery rhyme:

All around the mulberry bush,
The monkey chased the weasel.
The monkey thought ’twas all in fun,
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.

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.
