Right: From American Songs and Ballads, Series 3, Volume 3

Chorus:
'Round and 'round the cobbler's bench
The monkey chased the weasel,
The monkey thought 'twas all in fun
Pop! Goes the weasel.

A penny for a spool of thread
A penny for a needle,
That's the way the money goes,
Pop! Goes the weasel.
Chorus:

2. A half a pound of tupenny rice,
A half a pound of treacle.
Mix it up and make it nice,
Pop! Goes the weasel.
Chorus:

3. Up and down the London road,
In and out of the Eagle,
That's the way the money goes,
Pop! Goes the weasel.
Chorus:

4. I've no time to plead and pine,
I've no time to wheedle,
Kiss me quick and then I'm gone
Pop! Goes the weasel.
Chorus:

Queen Victoria is very sick,
Napoleon's got the measles,
Sebastopol's not taken yet;
Pop goes the weazle!
Chorus:
All round the cobbler's bench,
The monkey chased the weazle,
The priest, he kissed the cobbler's wife,
Pop went the weazle.

2. A penny for a ball of thread,
A penny for a needle,
That's the way the money goes;
Pop goes the weazle.
Chorus:

3. My wife, she is awful sick,
The baby's got the measles,
Sally's got the whooping cough;
Pop goes the weazle.
Chorus:

4. Johnny Bull, he makes his brag,
He can whip the whole creation,
Why don't he take Sebastopol,
By Pop goes the weazle.
Chorus:

5. Mayor Wood has put the rumsellers through,
The Maine Law's a sad evil,
We cannot get our toddy now;
Pop goes the weazle.
Chorus:
