Pop! Goes the Weasel Printable Lyrics – PDF

“Pop! Goes the Weasel” is an English nursery rhyme and singing game. A music sheet acquired by the British Library in 1853 describes a dance, “Pop! Goes the Weasel”, as “An Old English Dance, as performed at Her Majesty’s & The Nobilities Balls, with the Original Music”.

The song seems to have crossed the Atlantic in the 1850s where U.S. newspapers soon afterwards call it “the latest English dance”, and the phrase “Pop! goes the weasel” soon took hold.

Lyrics

1. ‘Round and ’round the cobbler’s bench
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.

2. A half a pound of tupenny rice,
A half a pound of treacle.
Mix it up and make it nice,
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.

3. Up and down the London road,
In and out of the Eagle,
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.

4. I’ve no time to plead and pine,
I’ve no time to wheedle,
Kiss me quick and then I’m gone
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.
