Shake and rattle and rattle and shake
The golden grains as they bounce and break
To fluffy puffiness--Poppetty-pop!
Bursting and banging the popper's top!
The yellow kernels, oh, see them grow
White as cotton or flakes of snow!
O-ho, how they frolic and fly about
And turn themselves suddenly inside out!
The popper's full and we'll have to stop;
Pile the bowl with the tempting treat,
Children, come, it is time to eat!
