Campus-wide debates have recently centered on the proper pronunciation of CupcakKe, the stage name of Spring Fling artist, Elizabeth Eden Harris. Meanwhile, in the Yale Daily News, some op-eds have characterized the 18-year-old’s music as “smut” and “difficult to swallow” while others have lauded her as an important gay and feminist icon. We, however, had another issue. CupcakKe’s music got stuck in our head and we wanted to be able to sing it unabashedly outside of the Yale bubble, where people may not be familiar with CupcakKe’s ouevre. If you are not already familiar with CupcakKe and her artistry, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with her body of work.

After a close reading of the lyrics of CupcakKe’s greatest hit, “Deepthroat,” we produced the following radio-friendly edits, which aim to maintain the artist’s intent, content and rhyme scheme, while being appropriate for the whole family. We present “Bleep Throat.”

Feed me, Feed me

Daddy better make me full (you better)

Feed me, Feed me

My tummy loves a mouthful

Lick, lick, lick, lick (I lick)

I’m gonna eat ’til I’m sick (I do)

But I can’t mess up my nails (I can’t)

So I’mma eat the chips with chopsticks

Mouth wide open, mouth wide open

Mouth wide open like I was at the dentist

Mouth wide open, mouth wide open

Tummy so full, I can’t speak a sentence

Mouth wide open, mouth wide open

Mouth wide open like I was at the dentist

Mouth wide open, mouth wide open

Tummy so full, I can’t speak a sentence

I eat in small bites, gentle (yeah)

Your food just makes me mental

I’mma write my thesis in sauce (in sauce)

Don’t need a pen or a pencil (no I don’t)

All I need is my hoagi (my hoagi)

I got ham, turkey and salami (ooh!)

Don’t need no drink to get naughty (no)

‘Cause bro I just need pastrami (I do)

My diet’s mean, and isn’t clean (It’s not)

I don’t like froyo, ice cream (lick lick!)

Keep on eating all of the food

I’ll even eat a sardine (ew!)

This will never ever end (It won’t)

Abdomen that shake when I spin (I spin)

I gotta food baby so big

I ain’t swallow one kid, I think I swallowed twins

Feed me, Feed me

Daddy better make me full (you better)

Feed me, Feed me

My tummy loves a mouthful

Lick, lick, lick, lick (I lick)

I’m gonna eat ‘til I’m sick (I do)

But I can’t mess up my nails (I can’t)

So I’mma eat the chips with chopsticks

Mouth wide open, mouth wide open

Mouth wide open like I was at the dentist

Mouth wide open, mouth wide open

Tummy so full, I can’t speak a sentence

Mouth wide open, mouth wide open

Mouth wide open like I was at the dentist

Mouth wide open, mouth wide open

Tummy so full, I can’t speak a sentence

Just come put it in my mouth (my mouth)

Let’s eat a hoagie, thick cuts

Sauce so thick, get my fingers licked

I keep eating till I chuck (thirsty)

This food so spicy, makes me squirm (squirm)

It’s gonna sweat me out of my perm (my perm)

Can’t wait ‘til it’s my turn

To bring this food baby to term (right now)

Wanna eat grapes on my back

Feed me on my back

Not grapes, a big Mac

That mean I’m no wussy

Don’t need a work out ’cause I’m ms metabolism

Acid sloshing around, sound like I’m gargling

Gimme some tree nuts, all I ask

My tummy is full of gas

So I pull my hair back in case I hurl

Made my stomach juices whurl fast

I’m so gassy

I’m so gassy

I’m so gassy

Man, I’m so gassy

I’m so gassy

I’m so gassy

I’m so gassy

Man, I’m so gassy
