Twilight, Travel, and Treats

Reflections of a Twihard on all things twilight, travel, and treats.

I have been a huge fan of Anna Kendrick's since New Moon's post theatre scene. It doesn't hurt that she's Oscar-nominated as well. She was on Dave Letterman this week promoting her new movie Pitch Perfect and performed what will always be known as "The Cup Song" to most people.

Here's her interview. The Cup Song starts around 6:17.



Right away I had to know how she did it - so cool! Some of you may be familiar with this cup thing. I guess it's been around for a couple decades but I think the singing part is new.

I think this is the original video from Lulu and the Lampshades

 


And this is the basic breakdown of how to do the cup trick



And here are the lyrics to the song from Lulu and the Lampshades' blog
 
I got my ticket for the long way round
Two bottles of whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
I'm leaving tomorrow what d'ya say?

When I'm gone/when I'm gone
When I'm gone/ when I'm gone
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
You're gonna miss me by my hair you're gonna miss me everywhere
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

I got my ticket for the long way round
The one with the prettiest views
Its got mountains its got rivers
Its got sites'll (should be woods, whatever you like) give you shivers
But it sure would be prettier with you

chorus x2

third chorus is a bit different ..
You're gonna miss me by my walk you're gonna miss by my talk
And I know you will miss me when I'm gone.
 
Have fun!
