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 pompons
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
Uh huh
Uh huh I said I'm putting down my story in a popular song

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 was on the lookout for someone to hate
Picking on me like a dinner plate
You'd hit during classes and in between them
Dunk me in the toilets now it's you that cleans em'
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's laughing, got everyone clapping, asking
How come you look so cool?
'Cause that's the only thing that I learnt at school, boy
Uh huh
I said that's the only thing I learnt at school

My problem, I never was a model,
I never was a scholar,
And 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

All you ever need to know
You're only ever who you were
All you ever need to know
You're only ever who you were (that'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 (It's all you ever need to know)
And all that you have to do, is be true to you.
That's all you ever need to know (It's all you ever need to know)
