The Lyrics

What to do when you're waiting for the kettle to boil...
Walkin' round and round (walkin' round and rou-ound)
What's the bi-ig delay? (what's the big dela-ay?)
I just want a cup (I just want a cu-up)
Of coffee today (of coffee today)
Gettin' really bo-ored (gettin' really bo-ored)
Sung three songs, this is lame (sung three songs, this is lame)
While the kettle's steamin' (while the kettle's steamin')
Passin' the time away

Used too much water
Might possibly-y explain
Why the kettle's been boilin' (kettle's been boili-in')
For what feels li-ike a da-ay (what feels like a day)
My feet are startin' to get so-ore (startin' to get so-ore)
Can't si-it down, my back aches (sit down, my back aches)
The kettle's still steamin' (the kettle's still steamin')
Becomin' a real pain

"Watched pot never boils (watched pot never boi-oils)"
Is what peo-eople say (is what people sa-ay)
I've kept my eyes off (I've kept my eyes o-off)
It, still boilin', lame (it, still boilin', lame)
Also got the toaster (also got the toaste-er)
On, I'm sta-arved, okay? (on, I'm starved, okay?)
Will the kettle's steamin' (will the kettle's steamin')
Be stoppin' first today? (will the kettle's steamin')
Or will the toaster take (will the toaster's burnin')
This really dumb first place?

Tomorrow I start parodying every song in the 2015 United State of Pop! All 50 of 'em! Yeah, don't know why DJ Earworm went for 50 this year instead of the usual 25, but my theory is that it was half "too many cool songs get left out" and half "I get to call it 50 Shades of Pop".
