If a man says duck
It all turns black

Will the ball explode
with doom and gloom?

The bell will ring
And the child will sing

When you see a cow
???

Options:

  1. The horse knows why
  2. You want it too
  3. It turns to snow
  4. They find a shack
  5. Your eyes turn green

Hints:

(it's already solved but in case you want to try anyway)

1.

Every two lines are separate, and follow the same logic

2.

An alternate ending for the first line is:

If a man says duck
goo ga goo ga gack

3.

The semantics of the second line is irrelevant

I think the answer is

2. You want it too

Reason:

The last word in the second line of each couplet rhymes with the sound made by the last word in the first couplet.

If a man says duck (quack)
It all turns black

Will the ball explode (boom)
with doom and gloom?

The bell will ring (ding)
And the child will sing

When you see a cow (moo)
You want it too

    $\begingroup$ @Randal'Thor popcorn sounds like 'pop' which rhymes with stop $\endgroup$ – Dotan Jul 2 '17 at 13:57

The answer is

2. You want it too

Reasoning:

The title gives it away: popcorn goes pop = stop

Here is the explanation:

You take the last word of each first line, and rhyme the onomatopoeia that is associated with that word

  • Duck -> quack = black

  • Explode -> boom = gloom

  • Ring -> ring/ding = sing

  • Cow -> moo = too
