Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It exists in all different places
It transcends all time and spaces
I know, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, it's complicated
It saved me, I know it can save you
That sounds dumb but trust me it's been proved
I know, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, it's underrated

[Hook]
I think I like it, I think I like it
I think I like it, I think I like it
I think I like it, I think I like it

[Chorus]
Pop is when you hear a song
And cannot help but sing along
It's when you hate it but you still appreciate it
Pop belongs to everyone (oh oh)
Pop is on the radio
And who decides we'll never know
Somebody told me I should follow where the money goes

[Hook]
I think I like it, I think I like it
I think I like it, I think I like it

[Verse 2]
Poor kids come from nothing, but they can
Have it too, it's egalitarian
I know, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, it's hard to make it
Drive rich cars and live in some mansions
Still, have heart under all the fashions
I know, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, you gotta chase it, but

[Hook]
I think I like it, I think I like it
I think I like it, I think I like it
I think I like it, I think I like it

[Chorus]
Pop is when you hear a song
And cannot help but sing along
It's when you hate it but you still appreciate it
Pop belongs to everyone (oh oh)
Pop is on the radio
And who decides we'll never know
Somebody told me I should follow where the money goes

[Hook]
I think I like it, I think I like it
Yeah, I still like it, yeah, I still like it
I think I like it, I think I like it
