Origin

The song was believed to come from the Victorian era. Before supermarkets even existed, fresh foods were usually delivered to households.

One particular food that was delivered at that time was muffins (specifically believed that they are called English muffins) and they are delivered by, you guessed it, the muffin man.

In the song, it says that the muffin man lives in Drury Lane, which is a thoroughfare at the border of Covenant Garden in the City of London.

There is also a game that is associated with the song, which was changed three times being: a forfeit game, a guessing game, and a dancing ring.

Lyrics

Here is the full lyrics of “The Muffin Man”

Do (Oh, do”) you know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Do you know the muffin man,
Who lives on Drury Lane?

Yes (Oh, yes), I know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Yes, I know the muffin man,
Who lives on Drury Lane.

Video

Here is the puppetized video of “The Muffin Man” by Super Simple Songs – Kids Song on YouTube with a bit of a variation where workers like the Ice Cream man and the Fruit Stand man are added in the song.
