Lyrics

[Intro]
For-ever, forever
Ev-ev, ev-er forever
New Ring Pop
Ev-er, forever
New Ring Pop-Pop
New Ring Pop, pop

[Verse 1]
I don't want anyone else to know
What we do whenever we're alone
Make me V.I.P. behind the sofa
All my friends take medicine without a cold
Purple stuff turns everyone to gold
Hate the taste, we mix it with Coca-Cola

[Pre-Chorus]
When did pattycake turn to bloody knuckles?
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

[Chorus]
We could stay up, watch adult cartoons
Baby, will you be here soon?
Blowing up the big balloons
So big that they all go pop (They all go pop, they all go)
Turn off the lights, let's kiss in the corner
Promise to play house with me forever
Reach for my finger, put on a new Ring Pop (A new Ring Pop, a new Ring Pop)
Put on a new Ring Pop

[Verse 2]
You only call me when it's getting late
I-I-I saved you a piece of cake
And a bottle on ice with spoiled milk
Luna's on the roof and she's so sad
Pacifiers in her goody bag
Once you jump there's no coming back

[Chorus]
We could stay up, watch adult cartoons
Baby, will you be here soon?
Blowing up the big balloons
So big that they all go pop (They all go pop, they all go)
Turn off the lights, let's kiss in the corner
Promise to play house with me forever
Reach for my finger, put on a new Ring Pop (A new Ring Pop, a new Ring Pop)
A new Ring Pop
Put on a new Ring Pop
Put on a new Ring Pop
Put on a new Ring Pop

[Bridge]
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
When did pattycake turn to bloody knuckles?
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

[Chorus]
We could stay up, watch adult cartoons
Baby, will you be here soon?
Blowing up the big balloons
So big that they all go pop (They all go pop, they all go)
Turn off the lights, let's kiss in the corner
Promise to play house with me forever
Reach for my finger, put on a new Ring Pop (A new Ring Pop, a new Ring Pop)
Put on a new Ring Pop
Put on a new Ring Pop (A new Ring Pop)
Put on a new Ring Pop
Put on a new Ring Pop
A new Ring Pop

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
Another round of baby bottles
Can't be pleased, sleep in tomorrow
Want this cake?
I'll blow out your candle when you get older
A tablespoon if you catch a cold
Purple stuff turns us to gold
Don't like the taste?
Mix it with some Coca-Cola (Coca-Cola)

[Pre-Chorus]
You don't have to be you
And I might not be me
As long as you're sweet to me

[Chorus]
We could stay up, watch adult cartoons
Baby, will you be here soon?
Blowing up the big balloons
So big that they all go pop (They all go pop, they all go pop)
Turn off the lights, let's kiss in the corner
Promise to play house with me forever
Reach for my finger
Put on a new Ring Pop (New Ring Pop, new Ring Pop, new Ring Pop)

[Post-Chorus]
Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop
Ring Pop, ring
Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop
(Put on a new Ring Pop)
Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop
Ring Pop, ring
Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop

[Verse 2]
Luna's on the roof; so sad
I wonder what's in her goodie bag
Once you jump there's no coming back to life
Daddy don't let me party a lot
My treasure chest is usually locked
But I will show you my sandbox tonight

[Chorus]
We could stay up, watch adult cartoons
Baby, will you be here soon?
Blowing up the big balloons
So big that they all go pop (They all go pop, they all go pop)
Turn off the lights, let's kiss in the corner
Promise to play house with me forever
Reach for my finger
Put on a new Ring Pop (New Ring Pop, new Ring Pop)
