Popular Song (Mika)

La la, la la 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 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 [Chorus:] 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 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 'em 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 that's the only thing that I've learned at school [Chorus:] 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 (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 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...)
