  • Pop Goes The World
    Men Without Hats

    Johnny played guitar, Jenny played bass.
    Name of the band is The Human Race.
    Everybody tell me have you heard? Pop goes the world.

    Jenny played keyboard, Johnny played drums,
    Called Little Baby and a big Bonhomme
    Everybody tell me have you heard? Pop Goes The World.

    It goes something like this: (p p p pop)

    Johnny and Jenny had a crazy dream,
    See their pictures in a magazine.
    Every little boy needs a girl.
    Pop Goes The World.

    Jenny and Johnny getting smart (it seems)
    Made more money on a movie screen.
    Every little nest needs a bird.
    Pop Goes The World.

    One two three and four is five,
    Everybody here is a friend of mine.
    Whatever happened to the Duke of Earl?
    Pop Goes The World.

    Six seven eight and nine is ten,
    Send Al Gunn to see the doctor (Ben)
    Say what planet are we on? The third!
    Pop Goes The World.

    And Every time I wonder where the world went wrong,
    End up lying on my face going ringy dingy ding dong

    And every time I wonder if the world is right,
    End up in some disco dancing all night & day.

    Johnny played guitar, Jenny played bass,
    Name of the band is The Human Race.
    Everybody tell me have you heard? Pop Goes The World.

    Johnny played guitar, Jenny played bass,
    Ain't nobody couldn't take their place.
    Everybody tell me have you heard? Pop Goes The World... Writer/s: IVAN DOROSCHUK
