Popular Song

You were the popular one, the popular chick

It is what it is, now I'm popular ish

Standing on the field with your pretty pom-pom

Now you're working at the movie selling popular corn

I could have been a mess but I never went wrong

'Cause I'm putting down my story in a popular song

I said I'm putting down my story in a popular song

 

My problem,

I never was a model,

I never was a scholar,

But you were always popular,

You were singing all the songs I don't know

Now you're in the front row

'Cause my song is popular

 

Popular, I know about popular

It's not about who you are or your fancy car

You're only ever who you were

Popular, I know about popular

And all that you have to do is be true to you

That's all you ever need to know

So catch up,

'cause you've got a long long way to go

So catch up,

'cause you've got a long long way to go

 

Always on the lookout for someone to hate,

Picking on me like a dinner plate

You hid during classes, and in between them

Dunked me in the toilets, now it's you that cleans them

You tried to make me feel bad with the things you do

It ain't so funny when the joke's on you

Ooh, the joke's on you

Got everyone laughing, got everyone clapping, asking,

"How come you look so cool?"

'Cause that's the only thing that I've learned at school, boy (uh huh)

 

I said, that's the only thing I've learned at school

 

My problem,

I never was a model,

I never was a scholar,

But you were always popular,

You were singing all the songs I don't know

Now you're in the front row

'Cause my song is popular

 

Popular, I know about popular

It's not about who you are or your fancy car

You're only ever who you were

Popular, I know about popular

And all that you have to do is be true to you

That's all you ever need to know

So catch up,

'cause you've got a long long way to go

So catch up,

'cause you've got a long long way to go

 

It's all you ever need to know

You're only ever who you were

It's all you ever need to know

You're only ever who you were (It's all you ever need to know)

It's all you ever need to know

 

Popular, I know about popular

It's not about who you are or your fancy car

You're only ever who you were

Popular, I know about popular

It's not about who you are or your fancy car

You're only ever who you were

Popular, I know about popular

And all that you have to do is be true to you.

That's all you ever need to know

(That's all you ever need to know...)
