  • Pop bottles pop-bottles
    In pop shops;
    The pop-bottles Pop bottles
    Poor Pop drops.

    When Pop drops pop-bottles,
    Pop-bottles plop!
    Pop-bottle-tops topple!
    Pop mops slop!

    Stop! Pop'll drop bottle!
    Stop, Pop, stop!
    When Pop bottles pop-bottles,
    Pop-bottles pop!
