Lyrics for Not a Pop Song by Little Mix:

Verse 1: Jade
They look for picture perfect
Don't look deeper than the surface
Bubblegum always pops and
Stars they fade, our life never stops

Pre-Chorus: Leigh-Anne
I don't do what Simon says
Get the message 'cause it's read
That's just life it never plays fair
Said to follow any dream
Be a puppet on a string
Works for you but that isn't me

Chorus: All
This ain't another pop song, 'bout fallin' in love
Or a party song, 'bout drinks and drugs
Or a singin' song, 'bout breakin' my heart
And my lonely nights, dancin' in the dark
If I'm a guilty pleasure I want this life forever
I'll take it on 'cause anything is better
Than another pop song, 'bout fallin' in love
But if you wanna sing along say, "I don't give a what"

Verse 2: Jesy, with Perrie
A hamster on the wheel
That's how we feel tryin' to be real
These unrealistic expectations, said we'll make it if we fake it

Pre-Chorus: Leigh-Anne
I don't do what Simon says
Get the message 'cause it's read
That's just life it never plays fair
Said to follow any dream
Be a puppet on a string
Works for you but that isn't me

Chorus: All
This ain't another pop song, 'bout fallin' in love
Or a party song, 'bout drinks and drugs
Or a singin' song, 'bout breakin' my heart
And my lonely nights, dancin' in the dark
If I'm a guilty pleasure I want this life forever
I'll take it on 'cause anything is better
Than another pop song, 'bout fallin' in love
But if you wanna sing along say, "I don't give a what"

Bridge: Perrie
No broken bottles
Or glitter on the floor from the night before
And no boy troubles
If this what you came here for, then you should know that

Chorus: Jade, All
This ain't another pop song, 'bout fallin' in love
Or a party song, 'bout drinks and drugs
Or a singin' song, 'bout breakin' my heart
And my lonely nights, dancin' in the dark
If I'm a guilty pleasure I want this life forever
I'll take it on 'cause anything is better
Than another pop song, 'bout fallin' in love
But if you wanna sing along say, "I don't give a what"

Outro: All, Jade
Not a pop song
I don't give a what
Not a pop song
I don't give a what
But if you wanna sing along say, "I don't give a what"

Song Facts

“Not a Pop Song” is the first promotional single from Little Mix’s sixth studio album, “Confetti”. The song finds the band brushing aside the stigma that accompanies being a female pop-band, and also takes shots at Simon Cowell, the head of the band’s former record label.

The song was first teased back in March 2020 after band-member Jade posted a video with singer-songwriter Tayla Parx in the studio where the pre-chorus can be heard playing in the background.

On October 7, 2020, which also happens to be Simon Cowell’s birthday, the band took to social media to officially announce that the single would drop two days later on October 9. It was released alongside an official lyric video.
