The Fast Food Song

The Fast Food Song is fun for Scouts. It is an action song and would fit in well with a nutrition themed meeting. Use the song to introduce the topic of fast food and making healthy choices.

Go through the actions before you sing the song. When you say “Pizza Hut” make a roof over your head with your hands. When you say “Kentucky Fried Chicken”, flap your arms like a chicken. And when you say “McDonalds”, make an M in front of you with your arms.

If you don’t know the tune, here is a very funny You Tube video by The Fast Food Rockers, who wrote the song. This is the whole song. When we do it with scouts, we only sing the refrain.

    I just taught this to my kids over spring break. The girls I learned it from drew a box shape in the air with their hands for Pizza Hut (the pizza box) and for McDonald’s they did an “M” but started in the middle of the middle with their fingers touching and drew arches out.

    Just wondering what in heaven’s name this song has to do with nutrition and healthy choices. Except just to say: “Hey kids, avoid every name on this list if you don’t want to grow obese and get diabetes!”

      As stated above, after you sing the song, talk about fast food and healthy choices. Use the song as an attention grabber.

    Here’s the 2nd verse to this song:

    A Burger King, A Burger King (make crown on head)
    Long John Silvers and a Burger King. (hand on forehead looking far across the sea for LJS)
    A Burger King, A Burger King.
    Long John Silvers and a Burger King.
    Red Robin, Red Robin. (Make chicken wings and shake your tail feathers)
    Long John Silvers and a Burger King.
    Red Robin, Red Robin.
    Long John Silvers and a Burger King!

    (We talk about all of the bad choices we have out there for unhealthy food. Enough to make a song out of them! We then talk about how we can make healthier choices on a daily basis.)

    For the first verse we make a triangle with our arms outstretched and touch our fingertips to make a piece of pizza, Make the M arch with our hands overhead, make chicken wings and strut or shake our tail feathers for KFC (which is now Kitchen Fried, no longer Kentucky Fried), crown on our heads for Burger King, and the same chicken wings and tail feather shaking for Red Robin. It’s a fun song!!!

    That is the sickest thing I have ever seen – and I mean sick as in a bad way – what a travesty for this site to promote fake unhealthy food – I would never show that to kids – GROSS SO VERY GROSS!!

    This is awful and bizarre, it almost seems like some sort of sneaky advertising / branding – this is just the absolute worst

    I can understand what the people are trying to do with this song. It is NOT to promote these eating places. We are to teach healthy choices and to help the boys understand UNhealthy choices. This is a song that will get their attention and as said above, you can then talk about all the reasons fast food is unhealthy and what healthy choices you can make if you need to eat there, such as the salads, fruit with meal instead of fries, grilled chicken instead of deep fat fried and so on.

    Over 20 years ago I sang this song in scouts. When lots of girls eat nothing but scout food in the woods for weeks on end they like to sing about fast food during their very long hikes. Don’t make more of it then that. All this “promoting healthy choice” parnoia is going to make your children neurotic

    Just a little thing about this though – if you actually look at the words to the verse you’ll see it’s actually quite suggestive, using double entendres a lot and the chorus serves the purpose of stopping it being utter filth…
    Obviously if you only use the chorus then it’s not a problem.

    I took my daughter to a Girl Scout informational meeting. When they started singing this song, I wanted to grab my daughter and leave. How offensive, in a country in which kids are developing heart disease and diabetes, to be promoting and giving free advertising to corporate monsters who wish our children to become hooked on their horrible “food”!!! INSANE!!!
