Nada – Popular lyrics

Three important rules for breaking up:
Don't put off breaking up when you know you want to.
Prolonging the situation only makes it worse.
Tell him honestly, simply, kindly but firmly.
Don't make a big production.
Don't make up an elaborate story.
This will help you avoid a big tear-jerking scene.
If you want to date other people, say so.
Be prepared for the boy to feel hurt and rejected.
Even if you've gone together for only a short time and haven't been too serious,
There's still a feeling of rejection when someone says she prefers the company of others to your exclusive company.
But if you're honest and direct, and avoid making a flowery emotional speech when you break the news,
The boy will respect you for your frankness.
And honestly, he'll appreciate the straightforward manner in which you told him your decision.
Unless he's a big jerk or a crybaby, you'll be friends.

I'm head of the class (I'm popular)
I'm a quarterback (I'm popular)
My mom says I'm a catch (I'm popular)
I'm never last picked
I've got a cheerleading chick.

Being attractive is the most important thing there is.
If you want to catch the biggest fish in your pond, you have to be as attractive as possible.
Make sure to keep your hair spotless and clean.
Wash it at least every two weeks. Once, every two weeks.
And if you see Johnny-football-hero in the hall, tell him he played a great game.
Tell him you liked his article in the newspaper.

I'm the party star (I'm popular)
I've got my own car (I'm popular)
I never get caught (I'm popular)
I make football bets
I'm the teacher's pet.

I propose to support a one-month limit on going steady.
I think it would keep people more able to deal with weird situations, and get to know more people.
I think that if you're ready to go out with Johnny, now is the time to tell him about your one-month limit.
He won't mind. He'll appreciate your fresh look on dating.
And once you've dated someone else, you can date him again.
I'm sure he'll like it, everyone will appreciate it.
You're so novel - what a good idea.
You can keep your time to yourself. You don't need date assurance.
You can go out with whoever you want to.
Every boy! Every boy in the whole world could be yours!
If you'll just listen to my plan, the teenage guide to popularity!...

I'm head of the class (I'm popular)
I'm the quarterback (I'm popular)
My mom says I'm a catch (I'm popular)
I'm never last picked.
I'm a cheerleading chick.
I'm the party star (I'm popular)
I've got my own car (I'm popular)
I'll never get caught (I'm popular)
I'm the teacher's pet.
I make football bets...
