Do you know the origins of this old playground song?


Coca-Cola went to town
Pepsi-Cola knocked him down
Seven-Up picked him up
And carried him to Dr. Pepper.

It's from I'm a nut but its also has its own song.
Please tell me.

One of our Mudcatters works on a Website called Mamalisa.com (click). You'll find an mp3 and YouTube videos there, along with these lyrics:

    COCA COLA WENT TO TOWN

    Coca Cola went to town
    Diet Pepsi shot him down
    Dr. Pepper picked him up
    Now we're drinking 7-Up
    7-Up got the flu
    Now we're drinking Mountain Dew
    Mountain Dew fell off a mountain
    Now we're drinking from a fountain
    Fountain broke, people choke,
    Now we're back to drinking coke.


Note that the melody is NOT "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and I think also not "I'm a Nut." It is indeed an entity of its own.

And the following "Cool Hand Games" doesn't have anything to do with "Coca Cola," but I thought it was a cute video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvuGApvNF58

Now, this version (click) IS sung to the tune of "Yankee Doodle":

COCA COLA WENT TO TOWN

Coca cola went to town
Pepsi Cola knocked him down
Dr. Pepper fixed him up
And now we're drinking Mountain Dew.

Mountain Dew fell off the mountain
Now we're drinking water fountain
Water fountain BROKE
And now we're drinking Coke

Coke fell in the dirt
And now we're drinking Squirt
Squirt shot an apple
And now we're drinking Snapple

Snapple saw a deer
And now we're drinking Root Beer
Root Beer saw the light
And now we're drinking Sprite

Sprite got in a fix
And now we're drinking Sprite
REMIX!

...the video may give me nightmares...
