When ever I see someone
Less fortunate than I
My tender heart tends to start to bleed
And when someone needs a make-over
I simply have to take over
I know, I know
Exactly what they need
And even in your case (no offense)
Though it's the toughest case
I've yet to face
I'm determined to succeed
And yes indeed
I know about Popular
And with an assist from me
To be who you'll be
Instead of dreary who you-were (well are)
There's nothing that can stop you
From becoming populer (lar)
Celebrated heads of state or
Specially great communicators
Did they have brains or knowledge?
Don't make me laugh! He,he!
They were popular!
Just not quite as popular
