Pop Goes The Weasel - Lyrics

Round and round the cobbler's bench
The monkey chased the weasel
The monkey thought it was 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.

Every night when I get home
The monkey's on the table
Take a stick and knock it off
Pop! goes the weasel.
