The Teapot Song
I’m a little teapot, short and stout. Bend knees and have arms above head to create an ‘o’ shape.
Here is my handle, here is my spout. Put left hand on hip and have right arm diagonally up.
When I get all steamed up, hear me shout, Shake your full body.
Tip me over and pour me out. Lean to the right and lift left leg (keep straight) up off the floor.
I’m a very special pot, it’s true, Place right hand onto your heart.
Here, let me show you what I can do. Return to standing normal and place arms out (palms up).
I can change my handle and my spout, Put right hand on hip and have left arm diagonally up.
Tip me over and pour me out. Lean to the left and lift right leg (keep straight) up off the floor.
