    Hop around

    hi!!
    This phrasal verb appears in this lyrics:
    Old Godzilla was hopping around
    Tokyo City like a big playground
    when suddenly Batman burst from the shade
    and hit Godzilla with a Batgrenade.
    I guess the verb is "to hop". I, first, thought it was "to hope" but then I saw the double p.

    Thank you very much!

    Re: Hop around

    It's 'hop', which is to jump around, especially on one leg, though I'd imagine Gozilla probably used both.

    anyway it caused a earthquake :D
    Thank you very much some more questions:
    Jump around is a phrasal verb, isn't it?
    what does it mean? I don't find it in my dictionary.
    Thank you!!

    Re: Hop around

    It's literal- jump from place to place, often without an apparent sequence
