Pop Life
What's the matter with your life?
Is the poverty bringin' you down?
Is the mailman jerkin' you 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check in someone else's box?

Tell me, what's the matter with your world?
Was it a boy when you wanted a girl?
(Was it a boy when you wanted a girl?)
Don't you know straight hair ain't got no curl (no curl)
Life it ain't real funky
Unless it's got that pop
Dig it

Pop life
Everybody needs a thrill
Pop life
We all got a space to fill
Pop life
Everybody can't be on top
But life, it ain't real funky
Unless it's got that pop
Dig it

Tell me, what's that underneath your hair?
Is there anybody livin' there? (anybody livin' there?)
You can't get over if you say you just don't care (don't care)
Show me a boy who stays in school
And I'll show you a boy aware
Dig it

Pop life
Everybody needs a thrill
Pop life
We all got a space to fill
Pop life
Everybody can't be on top
But life it ain't real funky
Unless it's got that pop
Dig it

What you putting in your nose?
Is that where all your money goes? (Is that where your money goes?)
The river of addiction flows, you think it's hot
But there won't be no water
When the fire blows
Dig it

Pop life
Everybody needs a thrill
Pop life
We all got a space to fill
Pop life
Everybody wants to be on top
Life it ain't real funky
Unless it's got that pop

Pop life
Everybody needs a thrill
Pop life
We all got a space to fill
Pop life
Everybody can't be on top
But life it ain't real funky
Unless it's got that pop
