The teapot song has an amazing story behind its origin. Clarence Kelly and his wife used to run a dance school for children. The students found difficulty in understanding the concept of tap dance. To solve the problem and to keep the children motivating, George Harold wrote the Teapot Song which required minimal skills and encouraged natural pantomime. Soon, both the song and the tap dancing became popular in America and overseas.

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 clever teapot,
Yes it’s true
Here let me show you
What I can do
I can change my handle
And my spout
Just tip me over and pour me out!


In this rhyme, the poet is explaining the process and adventures of the teapot. The teapot depicts itself as little, short and stout. It introduces its handle and stout. When the teapot gets steamed up, it shouts. As it is prepared, pour the tea into the cups. The teapot says himself clever as it can do many things like it says that it can change its handle and its spout. So, it says ‘just tip me over and pour me out’!
