Lyrics

Oh do you know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man?
Oh do you know the muffin man,
That lives in Drury Lane?

Yes I know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man.
Yes I know the muffin man,
That lives in Drury Lane.

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!

In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Information About Muffin Man

"The Muffin Man" is a traditional children's song or nursery rhyme of English origin. The rhyme was first recorded in around 1820 with lyrics very similar to those used today; sometimes it is sung using Mulberry lane instead of Drury Lane.

Drury Lane is the name of a street located in London's Theatreland There are many traditional songs that have been set according to the lyrics of this song with regional variations in wording.

The Muffin Man would deliver muffins door-to-door or sell them in the street; the muffins were the English bread product called English muffins and not the sweeter cupcake American variety.

One of the many stories associated with this is :Originally eaten by the "downstairs" servants in England's Victorian society, the English muffin surfaced and rose to prominence in Great Britain when members of all classes of society became aware of its goodness. The family baker made English muffins from leftover bread and biscuit dough scraps and mashed potatoes. He fried the batter on a hot griddle, creating light, crusty muffins for the servants. Once members of the "upstairs" family tasted these rich muffins, they began to request them for themselves - especially during teatime.

As a result of the English muffin becoming the "most fancied" bread on the isle, English muffin factories sprang up all over England. Muffin men could be heard in the streets selling their muffins from wooden trays slung around their necks. For teatime in private homes and clubs, the English muffins would be split and toasted over an open fire and served in a covered sterling dish alongside tea. The prominence of the muffin men in English society was evident when "Oh, do you know the muffin man" became a popular children nursery rhyme. The popularity of the English muffin reached its zenith in Great Britain during the years preceding World War I.
