tip me over and pour me out

< Previous | Next >


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.
Just tip me over and pour me out.

Robots, animation

"Tip over" means "tilt" and "pour out" means to pour all the water out of it. Is my understanding correct? Thanks.

    It means "tip me [the teapot] over and pour my contents out." If "me" is the teapot, "pour me out" doesn't really make sense, but we understand that a little artistic licence has been taken.
