SparkPeople Cup: With Due Respect to Toby Keith

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

I've wanted to do this vlog since I got my ukelele at Christmas. It just took me this long to semi-learn the B Minor chord. LOL. It was my husband's idea to cover this song. You see, I have a special relationship with my SparkPeople cup. I take it everywhere and I mean everywhere! I don't leave home without it. It's made several cameos in our vlogs, and if you didn't see it onscreen, I guarantee it was just out of the frame. I know you can buy the exact same insulated cup elsewhere, super cheap. But there's something about seeing that SP logo that just encourages me, for some reason. So yes, I have all three colors. They've been rewards along the way. And now, I finally can give the SparkPeople Cup the respect it deserves. Sorry Toby, I just couldn't help myself. Special thanks to the Spark-D Wranglers: my hubs, Randy and my buddies, Chris and Rick, and, of course, Audrey.

Here are the lyrics, in case you want to sing along. Please do. It'd warm the cockles of my heart, to know you're singing too.

Now a SparkPeople Cup is the best receptacle
For hot and cold drinks that are quickly digestible
And I can see that you, sir, are still quite skeptical
But listen up and give it a chance.

With its double-walled, insulated, sturdy construction
It's easy to make this simple deduction
That drinking cold water leads to weight reduction
So fill it up and chug it down fast

SparkPeople Cup, I fill you up
With lots of water, lots of water
I love you, SparkPeople Cup, I fill you up
With lots of water, lots of water

Now I really love your reusable straw
And your screw-on lid just fills me with awe
You're 16 ounce perfection, without any flaw
Not to mention, you're BPA-free

You're dishwasher safe, but I wash you by hand
And I like to support the SparkPeople brand
Cause it's helping me stick to my weight-loss plan
And that makes a big difference to me.

SparkPeople Cup, I fill you up
With lots of water, lots of water
I love you, SparkPeople Cup, I fill you up
With lots of water, lots of water

Now I've seen you in red and I've seen you in blue
But green is the one that floats my canoe
Cuz you are the napkin to my barbecue
And you are the woo to my hoo

SparkPeople Cup, I know this sounds spastic
You're more than a cup, you're more than just plastic
And I don't think I sound a bit too drastic
When I look at you and say,

"SparkPeople Cup, you're not just a cup. You're my, you're my friend. Thank you for being my friend."

SparkPeople Cup, I fill you up
With lots of water, lots of water
I love you, SparkPeople Cup, I fill you up
With lots of water, lots of water

(In case you haven't already figured it out, this is an oh so loose cover of Toby Keith's "Red Solo Cup." Water's better for ya!)
