My Cup is an original song featured in New York, the twenty-second and final episode of Season Two. It is sung by Artie and Brittany, with Puck playing the guitar. Brittany writes the song for the 2011 National Show Choir Championships.

As the song is performed, the New Directions watch, noticeably disturbed. It can be seen as a possible tribute to Rachel's original song My Headband, as Brittany states that it was her favorite song in Original Song, the sixteenth episode of Season Two.

The first two verses were cut from the episode.


Brittany (Artie):
I got you in the palm of my hand
Wanna put something hot in you
So hot that you can't stand (That you can't stand)
Gonna take you to my lips
Empty out every last drop
So thirsty for what's in you baby
That I can't stop (That I can't stop)
In the middle of the night, I'm in bed alone
Don't care if you're glass, paper, styrofoam
When I need some water, baby

Artie and Brittany:
Coffee or gin

Brittany (with Artie):
You're the (only thing, I wanna put them in)

Artie and Brittany:
My cup, my cup
Sayin', "What's up?"
To my cup, my cup
More of a friend than a silly pup
My cup
You know what it is
Sayin', "What's up?"
To my cup (Ahh)
I'm Sayin', "What's up?"
To my cup (Ahh)
I'm Sayin', "What's up?"
To my cup (Ahh)


  • In the show, it is written as an attempt to create an original song for Nationals as New Directions have yet to write any songs for the competition before arriving in New York City. However, the song is quickly shot down because of its concept.
  • This song is one of two songs included on Tap Tap Glee when downloaded from iTunes, the other being Don't Stop Believin'.
  • Unlike My Headband, this song was released as a single on iTunes.
  • The song is mentioned and briefly performed by Brittany and Artie in the Season Four finale, All or Nothing.
