(Ariana Grande)
La la, la la
You were the popular one, the popular chick
It is what it is, now I'm popular-ish
(Mika)
Standing on the field with your pretty pompoms
Now you're working at the movies selling popular corn
I could've been a mess but I never went wrong
Cause I'm putting down my story in a popular song
(Ariana Grande)
Ahh,
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

(Ariana Grande)
Always on a 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
(Mika)
Tryna make me feel bad with the things you do
It ain't so funny when the jokes on you
(Ariana Grande)
Ooh, the jokes on you
Got everyone laughing, got everyone clapping, asking
How do 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 that I 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

(Ariana Grande)
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
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

[Chorus]
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
(Ariana Grande)
All you ever need to know
