I’m A Little Popcorn – Popcorn Song Lyrics

Pop - pop - pop!
Says the popcorn in the pan.
Pop - pop - pop!
You may catch me if you can.
Pop - pop - pop!
Says each kernel hard and yellow.
Pop - pop - pop!
I 'm a jolly little fellow.
Pop - pop - pop!
How I scamper through the heat.
Pop - pop - pop!
You will find me good to eat.
Pop - pop - pop!
I can whirl and skip and hop.
Pop - pop - pop!
Dancing, I never want to stop!

I 'm a little popcorn in a pot.
Heat me up and watch me pop!
When I get all fat and white I 'm done.
Popping corn is lots of fun!
