Girl, Put the Kettle On…

1 Comment

Welcome to Tea Time!!

tea-time-medium

Some who know me know that I like to make new songs out of songs that exist. “Reworked ditties” – I once phrased it.

They aren’t that great, but they bring smiles to my face, and usually to my family’s faces when I tell them.

Usually the similarity of the lyrics prompts the association in my mind, and the craziness springs onward from there.

I don’t actually do it often, just regularly.

So, with Corinne Bailey Rae’s “Girl Put Your Records On” song a frequent-flyer on my favorite Pandora station, it wasn’t long before I meshed it with “Girl, put the kettle on…” and thus my longest project yet, ensued.

I hope you enjoy!

I’ve added a link to the Vevo video, as it is blocked on YouTube. You can have her on in the background and follow “Girl, Put the Kettle On” while it plays. I was worried listening to one and reading the other would get quite “whoah” but it didn’t – I tested it on me 3 times, and my Mom also tested it. She also sang it ūüėĄ

Anyways, I enjoyed making this. I had no intention of parodying Miss Rae; hopefully it’s more of a nod to her than anything else, because I really like her song…. I’d have no problem if she’d like to go ahead come out with this version, too… that would be so cool!¬†A tea anthem!


Girl Put Your Records On

Three little mugs, sat on my counter

And they all told me a different story

Someone drank cinnamon tea, so sweet,

I started to doubt my caffeine drink

Maybe sometimes… we got it wrong, but it’s all right

The more things seem to rush, the more we gotta hush

Ooo, don’t you hesitate.

Girl, put the kettle on, tell me your favorite tea,

You go ahead, get your mug down

Earl Gray and Bergamot

They’re tasty, doncha know

Just go ahead, choose a tea now

You’re gonna find your brew¬†somewhere, somehow

Blueberry Slide, Chai tea and Honey,

Sipping tea in the cafe on the sidewalk

Don’t you let those flavored teas fool you

Better tea has no fake flavors

Maybe sometimes we feel sleepy, but it’s all right

The more you drink no tea, the more you drink coffee

Don’t want no caffeine

Girl, put the kettle on, tell me your favorite tea,

You go ahead, get your mug down

Earl Gray and Orange Pekoe

They’re tasty, doncha know

Just go ahead, choose a tea now

You’re gonna find your leaf¬†somewhere, somehow

It’s more than I could take

Caffeine for wakeness sake

Some nights kept me awake

I thought that I was stronger

When you gonna realize that you don’t even have to buzz¬†any longer?

Brew what you want to

Girl, put the kettle on, tell me your favorite tea,

You go ahead, get your mug down

Green Tea and Orange Pekoe

They’re tasty, doncha¬†know

Just go ahead, choose your tea now

Girl, put the kettle on, tell me your favorite tea,

You go ahead, get your calm on

Mint tea and Chamomile

They’re tasty, doncha¬†feel

Just go ahead, choose your tea now

Ooo, you’re gonna find your fav somewhere, somehow.

Q&A:

What is your favorite tea?

P.S.:

I am aware that most of the teas I mentioned above actually do have caffeine. Yeah… so, um. I don’t really have an explanation.

Yeah. Less caffeine than full-caf coffee, though…

  1. My fav tea: vanilla rooibus or any chai–(must be the perfect temperature if at all possible for max enjoyment– I sssoooo feel all is well with the world when this happens) : ) yum, yum!! Funny lyrics! Love it! I also have fun being silly making new lyrics to songs– Sometimes I crack myself up! : D
