Popular Lyrics

    Whenever I see someone
    less fortunate than I--
    and let's face it, who isn't
    less fortunate than I?
    My tender heart
    tends to start to bleed
    And when someone needs a makeover,
    I simply have to take over.
    I know I know exactly what they need!
    And even in your case,
    though it's the toughest case I've yet to face,
    don't worry, I'm determined to succeed
    Follow my lead
    and yes, indeed
    you will be.

    You're gonna be popular!
    I'll teach you the proper ploys
    When you talk to boys,
    little ways to flirt and flounce
    I'll show you what shoes to wear,
    how to fix your hair,
    ev'rything that really counts
    to be popular!
    I'll help you be popular!
    You'll hang with the right cohorts,
    you'll be good at sports,
    know the slang you've got to know
    So let's start,
    'cause you've got an awf'lly long way to go!

    Don't be offended by my frank analysis
    Think of it as personality dialysis
    Now that I've chosen to become a pal, a sister
    and adviser,
    there's nobody wiser,
    not when it comes to popular!
    And with an assist from me
    to be who you'll be,
    instead of dreary who you were... are...
    There's nothing that can stop you
    from becoming populer... lar...
    La la
    La la
    We're gonna make
    you popular!

    When I see depressing creatures
    with unprepossessing features,
    I remind them on their own behalf
    to think of
    celebrated heads of state or
    'specially great communicators...
    Did they have brains or knowledge?
    Don't make me laugh!

    They were popular
    Please! It's all about popular!
    It's not about aptitude,
    it's the way you're viewed,
    so it's very shrewd to be
    very, very popular
    like me!

    And though you protest
    your disinterest,
    I know clandestinely
    You're gonna grin and bear it
    your newfound popularity
    La la
    La la
    You'll be popular
    Just not quite as popular
    as me!
