When I’m gone as Gaeilge. 600 rannpháirtithe idir scolairí agus foireann Curiarracht dhomhanda – go bhfios dúinn Laoibhse Ní Nualláin agus co. TG Lurgan. “Cups” also known as “Cups (Pitch Perfect’s When I’m Gone)” is a song by American actress Anna Kendrick from the film Pitch Perfect, written by A.P. Carter and Luisa Gerstein.[1] It is a cover of Lulu and the Lampshades’ song “Cups (You’re Gonna Miss Me)”, a rendition of an old-time folk song “When I’m Gone” recorded in 1931 by the Carter Family, with later versions by J. E. Mainer’s Mountaineers and Charlie Monroe. It will also serve as the official song of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Kendrick learned the song after seeing Anna Burden’s YouTube cover on Reddit, and performed it as her character Beca Mitchell’s audition piece in the film accompanied by only a yellow plastic cup and the stage floor as percussion. Unlike the soundtrack version, the single version of the song was remixed with additional instrumentation (notably banjos) and extended by an additional minute.

Prior to the single’s release, covers of the song as well as tutorials on how to do the song (using cups) went viral across numerous video-sharing websites (such as YouTube).

I have my ticket for the long way
Two bottles of water for the journey
And I'd love to have a friend with me
I'm leaving tomorrow, will you be with me?

When I'm gone
When I'm gone
You’ll miss me when I'm not there
You’ll miss me and my smile
You’ll miss me every single way
Oh, you'll miss me when I'm not there

I have my ticket for the long way
The big world is waiting for me
Midst the mountains, by the river
Where the air is nice and fresh
Oh it would be a lot nicer with you, dear

When I'm gone
When I'm gone
You’ll miss me when I'm not there
You’ll miss me and my talking
You’ll miss me and my playing
You’ll miss me when I'm not there
