Ariana Grande Popular Song Lyrics

La la, la la

You were the popular one, the popular chick

It is what it is, now I’m popular-ish

Standing on the field with your pretty pompoms

Now you’re working at the movie selling popular corn

I could have been a mess but I never went wrong

‘Cause I’m putting down my story in a popular song

I said I’m putting down my story in a popular song

My problem, I never was a model,

I never was a scholar,

But you were always popular,

You were singing, all the songs I don’t know

Now you’re in the front row

‘Cause my song is popular

Popular, I know about popular

It’s not about who you are or your fancy car

You’re only ever who you were

Popular, I know about popular

And all that you have to do, is be true to you

That’s all you ever need to know

So catch up, ’cause you got an awful long way to go

So catch up, ’cause you got an awful long way to go

I was on the lookout for someone to hate

Picking on me like a dinner plate

You hid during classes and in between them

Dunked me in the toilets now it’s you that cleans ’em

You tried to make me feel bad with the things you do

It ain’t so funny when the joke’s on you

Ooh, the joke’s on you

Got everyone’s laughing, got everyone clapping, asking,

“How come you look so cool?”

‘Cause that’s the only thing that I learnt at school, boy

I said that’s the only thing I learnt at school

My problem, I never was a model,

I never was a scholar,

But you were always popular,

You were singing, all the songs I don’t know

Now you’re in the front row

‘Cause my song is popular

Popular, I know about popular

It’s not about who you are or your fancy car

You’re only ever who you were

Popular, I know about popular

And all that you have to do, is be true to you

That’s all you ever need to know

So catch up, ’cause you got an awful long way to go

So catch up, ’cause you got an awful long way to go

All you ever need to know

You’re only ever who you were

All you ever need to know

You’re only ever who you were

Popular, I know about popular

It’s not about who you are or your fancy car

You’re only ever who you were

Popular, I know about popular

It’s not about who you are or your fancy car

You’re only ever who you were

Popular, I know about popular

And all that you have to do, is be true to you.

That’s all you ever need to know

It’s all you ever need to know
