I'm A Little Teapot
I’m a little teapot, (point to-self)
Short and stout, (round arms and touch fingertips together in front of body)
Here is my handle, (place one hand on hip)
Here is my spout. (extend other arm out)
When I get all steamed up, hear me shout,
"Tip me over and pour me out!" (tip sideways in direction of extended arm and pretend to pour out tea)

I’m a very special pot, it’s true, (point to self)
Let me show you what I can do.
I can change my handle to my spout, (switch arm positions)
"Tip me over and pour me out!" (tip sideways in direction of extended arm and pretend to pour out tea)

Polly Put the Kettle On
Polly put the kettle on, (pretend to put kettle on fire)
Polly put the kettle on,
Polly put the kettle on,
We'll all have tea.

Sukey take it off again, (pretend to take kettle off fire)
Sukey take it off again,
Sukey take it off again,
They've all gone away.

Blow the fire and make the toast,
Put the muffins on to roast,
Blow the fire and make the toast,
We'll all have tea. (pretend to drink tea)
