I’m A Little Teapot Lyrics

 I’m a little teapot 

Short and stout 

Here is my handle

 Here is my spout 

When I get all steamed up

 Hear me shout 

Tip me over and pour me out! 

I’m a very special teapot

Yes, it’s true

Here’s an example of what I can do 

I can turn my handle into a spout 

Tip me over and pour me out!
