Information About And Multiple Examples Of The Children's Song "A Pizza Hut"

Edited by Azizi Powell

This pancocojams post provides multiple examples of the children's song "A Pizza Hut" (originally known as "The Fast Food Song"). That song is modeled after the children's song "A Ram Sam Sam".

"Ram Sam Sam" is modeled after a Moroccan (North African) folk song. "A Pizza Hut" has the same tune as "A Ram Sam Sam" and is sung while performing motions that are supposed to suggest the names of the fast food restaurants. Some versions of "A Pizza Hut" also include references to Star Wars movie characters and/or mildly put-down references to Boy Scout or Girl Scout (Girl Guide) divisions.

From PIZZA HUT [FAST FOOD SONG]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fast_Food_Song
"Fast Food Song" is a song made famous by the British-based band the Fast Food Rockers, although it existed long before they recorded it,[1] as a popular children's playground song. The chorus was based on the Moroccan folk tune "A Ram Sam Sam". It mentions the fast food restaurants McDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Pizza Hut.[2]

It was released in June 2003 as the lead single from their album It's Never Easy Being Cheesy. The song was highly successful on the UK Singles Chart, reaching number two in the official charts. The song also achieved chart success worldwide and reached number twenty-four on the Irish Charts and number fifty-six on the Australian ARIA Charts. The song was co-written and produced by Mike Stock. The lyrics were mildly controversial for supposedly promoting the excessive consumption of fast food by children, which is why some UK-based radio stations will not play the song when it is requested...

DJ Ötzi version
A version recorded by Austrian artist DJ Ötzi was released in July 2003 titled "Burger Dance". It reached number-one in Germany, peaked at number 3 in Austria, and at number 7 in Switzerland.

The song is largely based on "Fast Food Song", also using samples of "A Ram Sam Sam" and some sections of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" particularly "Glory Glory Hallelujah"...

"It's all here Ram Sam Sam http://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=67001 "Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A Ram Sam Sam (from Rolf Harris)
but we have different movements -
Ram sam sam - stamp your feet
Gooli gooli - arm twiddling (like thumb twiddling but with the whole arm)(same as 'This old man came rolling home')
Arafi - raise your arms in the air as you stand up and then sit down again.
At least, that's the way we do it.
For the Pizza Hutt version -
Pizza Hutt - make a roof shape with your hands
Kentucky fried chicken - make wing flapping movements, with hands under your armpits
McDonalds - make the big M shape - either drawing it in the air or hold arms up with hands curved over and fingertips touching."

Example #3: The Pizzahut song: Fast Food Dance 2012 (Eric Dikeb and the Letsshare team)



Letsshare, Uploaded on Nov 24, 2011

Eric Dikeb came to the Philippines and was part of the Letsshare.tv team for several weeks. We traveled from island to island with the Letsshare disco show. Meanwhile we played the song on the islands and they loved it because of the funny dance. As it is right now Letsshare.tv is touring the Philippines and the song is getting big over here. Everywhere we go people go bananas about it. So we film it on the road. Want to see this song getting big in the Philippines: the Letsshare real reality show daily on www.ltshr.tv !
