CHILDRENS' SONG OR GAME

I'M A LITTLE TEAPOT, SHORT AND STOUT,
(HERE HE PUTS HIS HAND ON HIS HIP, WITH HIS ARM CURVED
OUTWARD AS A HANDLE WOULD BE.)
HERE IS MY HANDLE, HERE IS MY SPOUT--
(HERE HE CURVES HIS ARM OUT FROM THE SIDE OF HIM, LIKE A
SNAKE.)
WHEN I GET ALL STEAMED UP, I BEGIN TO SHOUT,
(HERE HE BENDS TO THE SIDE OF THE "SPOUT" AND PRETENDS HE
IS GOING TO POUR OUT TEA.)
TIP ME OVER AND POUR ME OUT.

Submitter comment: THE PERSON BEGINS THE SONG STANDING UP:
