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.

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

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

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.

    There are people who are workers in there own way, we may even have friend's or family that are quick about taking advantage of our hard work like the weasel. the weasel made his living being around the monkey and the cobbler. The weasel was very quick about what he did and show know deep feeling for what ever he did. The monkey never had a clue he just thought life was fun.
