Information About The Oompa Loompa Songs
The Ooompa Loompas that sing the song originally appeared in Roald Dahl's book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". They were tiny people from an exotic land called "Loompaland" that were experts in the growing of cocoa beans. They were the only workers in the Chocolate Factory because they were the only ones Willy Wonka trusted with his chocolate.
The Oompa Loompa Songs were most famously portrayed on the silver screen in the 1971 film "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" starring Gene Wilder.

The famous "Oopma Loompa" dance can be performed while you sing this song! To dance like an Oompa Loompa hold both of your hand up like you are asking two people to stop. Then pump your legs up and down slightly in sync with the song. Then step left one step, step right one step, and spin around. You can do this in a line and switch places in the line by picking up the dancer to your left and putting them to the right of your place in the line.
Another fun Oompa Loompa activity requires an enormous blue ball, but if it can be found the entire group can sing the song while walking around it with hands behind the back before working together to push it in different directions. This ball will be a placeholder for Violet Beauregarde, who was turned into a huge blueberry by chewing experimental gum.
Each of the Oompa Loompa songs are meant to teach a specific moral lesson to children. They do not want children to eat too much, chew too much bubble gum, be disrespectful, or watch too much TV. These are wonderful lessons for any child.
