    Lyrics

    Ah, ah, ah, ah
    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 pompom
    Now you're working at the movies 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

    [Chorus:]
    My problem, I never was a model,
    I never was a scholar,
    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 got an awful long way to go
    So catch up, 'cause you got an awful 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
    Dunk 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 learned at school
    Boy, uh huh,
    I said that's the only thing I've learned at school

    [Chorus:]
    My problem, I never was a model,
    I never was a scholar,
    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 got an awful long way to go
    So catch up, 'cause you got an awful long way to go

    That's all you ever need to know
    You're only ever who you were
    That's all you ever need to know
    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...
