"I'm A Little Teapot (The Teapot Song)"
The Nonsensical 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 clever pot, 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!
Why They're Nonsensical:
Teapots can't say, sing or shout anything. They're inanimate, so they can't indicate where their handles or spouts are. They aren't clever, since they have no intelligence. And they can't change their handles, their spouts, or anything else about them.
[Editor's note: This song is not 'Traditional'; it was written by George Harry Sanders and Clarence Kelley, and released in 1939. First recording was performed by Ronnie Kemper, who appears on the cover of the original sheet music.]
