"I'm a Little Teapot"

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's an example of what I can do.
I can change my handle to my spout,
Just tip me over an pour me out.

*alternative lines, popular in Great Britain:
When I hear the tea-cups, hear me shout...
When I give a whistle, hear me shout...
When the Kettle's boiling, hear me shout...
