Pizza Pizza Daddy-O with a Lomax Video

“Pizza Pizza Daddy-O” is a cool circle dance game. Below are the lyrics to one version… many exist and you can add your own lines.

The kids stand in a circle and one child goes in the middle. The child in the middle is the one whose name they say in the first line of the chant. After the lyrics below you can watch a video of “Pizza Pizza Daddy-O” by Bess Lomax Hawes from 1967. It shows two different versions of the song.
