Pop Goes The Weasel

funny Weasel cartoon

Sing and Learn the Actions!


Up and down the City Road,
in and out the Eagle.
That 's the way the money goes,
pop goes the weasel!

Half a pound of tuppenny rice,
half a pound of treacle.
Mix it up and make it nice,
pop goes the weasel!

Every night when I go out,
the monkey 's on the table.
Take a stick and knock it off,
pop goes the weasel!
