American Old Time Song Lyrics: 35 Pop Ooes The Weasel
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 35
POP OOES THE WEASEL
Queen Victoria is very sick. Napoleon's got the measles,
Sebastopol's not taken yet-pop goes the weasel.
All 'round the cobbler's bench the monkey chased the weasel;
The priest he kissed the cobbler's wife-pop went the weasel.
A penny for a ball of thread, a penny for a needle,
That's the way the money goes-pop goes the weasel.- Chorus.
My wife she is awful sick, the baby's got the measles,
Sully's got the whooping cough-pop goes the weasel.- Chorus.
Johnny Bull he makes his brag he can whip the whole creation.
Why don't he take Sebastopol by pop goes the weasel.-Chorus.
Mayor Wood has put the rum sellers through, the Maine law's a sad evil,
We cannot get our toddy now-pop goes the weasel.- Chorus.
