SODA POPPIN' AROUND
(Maphis - Bond - Howard)
THE COLLINS KIDS (COLUMBIA, 1957)

Missed the sophomore prom
My baby's gone out of town
Now I'm drowning my sorrow
Soda poppin' around
Not a soul down at Joe's
It's a lonesome old town
Till he comes back tomorrow
I'm soda poppin' around
I'm walking up the street
And down the street
And hoping that a friend I'll meet
Someone who's got the price of a sundae
Not a chance, they're at the dance
And here I'm looking for romance
Gee, I hope he comes back for Mondae
Ain't gonna go home
Till eight or nine rolls around
Just drowning my sorrow
Soda poppin' around

I'm walking up the street
And down the street
And hoping that a friend I'll meet
Someone who's got the price of a sundae
Not a chance, they're at the dance
And here I'm looking for romance
Gee, I hope he comes back for Mondae
Ain't gonna go home
Till eight or nine rolls around
Just drowning my sorrow
Soda poppin' around
