Baby Songs Pop Goes the Weasel

Popular Nursery Rhymes Lyrics

The history of the nursery rhyme dates back to the year 1700. However, it is not very common today. In fact, many children are not taught anything about it. The history of the nursery rhyme can be derived from Cockney Rhyming slang whose origin is in London. The fact about the Cockneys is that they were a very close community. They bonded with one another very much such that they became suspicious and disliked by the cops. Apparently, they are not loved by the police to date. During this time, the community had certain cultures that were not common in other areas. For instance, it was common for the poor people to own a suit which they wore during special occasions. After the special occasion, they would pawn the suit and wait for the next occasion when it was worn.

 

Pop Goes the Weasel Lyrics

 

The original version is:

Half a pound of tupenny (= two-penny) rice,
Half a pound of treacle.
That’s the way the money goes,
Pop! goes the weasel
