The Pizza Man Song

The Pizza Man song is a camp classic. This is one of those songs that has many different versions and they are all fun.  All of the catch phrases rhyme (somewhat) with “man” and a lot of emphasis is usually put on the rhyme.

The leader sings each line of the Pizza Man Song and then the audience repeats it. Each verse has an action to go with it. At the end of the verse, the catch phrase and action for all of the previous verses are repeated. Some suggested actions are shown in brackets below, but the leader can make up anything appropriate.

If you don’t know the tune, see below the lyrics

The Pizza Man Song Lyrics

This is a repeat after me song. (This is a repeat after me song.)

Hey, Hey, Bo Diddly Bop
I’ve got to get back to my job.
with a Pizza in my hand [hold a pizza palm up]
I’m gonna be a Pizza MAN!

Hey, Hey, Bo Diddly Bop
I’ve got to get back to my job.
With these wires in my hand [pull wires every which way]
I’m gonna be an electricIAN!
ElectricIAN! [pull wires every which way]
Pizza MAN! [hold a pizza palm up] 

Hey, hey, Bo Diddly Bop
I’ve got to get back to my job.
With a basketball in my hand [shoot a ball]
I’m gonna be like Michael JordAN!
Michael JordAN!   [shoot the ball] 
ElectricIAN!  [pull wires every which way]
Pizza MAN! [hold a pizza palm up] 

Hey, hey, Bo Diddly Bop
I’ve got to get back to my job.
With my car keys in my hand [pretend to drive]
I’m gonna drive my miniVAN!
My miniVAN!  [pretend to drive]
Michael JordAN!  [shoot a ball] 
ElectricIAN!  [pull wires every which way]
Pizza MAN! [hold a pizza palm up]
