    Lyrics

    Half a pound of tuppenny rice
    Half a pound of treacle
    That's the way the money goes
    Pop goes the weasel

    Ha ha, yeah

    Half a pound of tuppenny rice
    Half a pound of treacle
    That's the way the money goes
    Pop goes the weasel

    Every night, when I go out
    The weasel's on the table
    Take a stick and knock it off
    Pop goes the weasel

    Up and down the city road
    In and out of 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

    You know, pop goes the weasel
    For years, I've wondered
    What that meant
    And nobody seemed to know

    So, I looked it up
    And the official explanation
    Goes something like this

    Pop goes the weasel refers to
    The habit of London hatters long ago
    Popping or pawning their weasels
    Or accessories on Saturday night
    To buy liquor, isn't that interesting

    Up and down the city road
    In and out of the eagle
    That's the way the money goes
    Pop goes the weasel

    But you know
    I've got a theory of my own
    About pop goes the weasel
    It's much simpler

    Why did the weasel go pop, go pop
    Pop, pop goes the weasel
    Why did the weasel go pop
    'Cause they upped the price
    Of tuppeny rice to four pence

    How did the pop get into the weasel
    Weasel, pop goes the weasel
    How did the pop get in there
    Well, the weasel caught his
    Beakle in the treacle

    Now, if you've got a weasel
    And you don't want him to pop
    The next time you go shopping
    Don't you take him in the shop
    Two, three, four

    Half a pound of tuppenny rice
    Half a pound of treacle
    Now that is the way
    That the money goes
    Pop goes the weasel

    Every night, when I go out
    The weasel's sitting on the table
    Now I take a stick
    And I knock it off
    Pop goes the weasel

    Up and down the city road
    In and out of the eagle
    That's the way the money goes
    Pop goes the weasel

    Together now

    Half a pound of tuppenny rice
    Half a pound of treacle
    Now, I mix it up
    And I make it nice
    Pop, pop, pop goes the weasel

    Pop, pop, pop goes the weasel
    Poppity, poppity, pop
    Goes the weasel now

    Would you excuse me for a moment
    I'm just gonna pop my weasel
