Babelfishing Poetry: "Neck Song (A Foundation)"

Hello! Would you like to see some more Babelfishing Poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, alter the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem?  You would? Well, you're in luck!

This week: "The Teapot Song" (commonly known as "I'm a Little Teapot") was originally published in 1939, and it gets Babelfished today in 2012 (watch a cutesy kiddie video of the song here, or a dancey uptempo version here).  Dance along if you're so inclined.  Enjoy. 

Neck Song (A Foundation)

I won!  I'm short and stocky.
Here is my handle, here is a mouth.
When I hear about all the dishes, I cry.
I commented, and I just poured out!

I have many pots, it's true.
What can he do as an example?
I can take credit for the nozzle handle.
I just poured it on the comments.
