Memorizing Pancake Robot lyrics

Parry Gripp "Pancake Robot" cover art

“Pancake Robot” by Parry Gripp is such a fun song to memorize the lyrics. Anytime you have pancakes, you can bust out some lyrics from this song. Like this little verse:

The pancake robot is coming to town
He’s mixing up the batter and he’s laying it down
Buttermilk, blueberry, chocolate chip
50 million pancakes he’s gonna flip

Here’s the song on Spotify or Youtube.

Listening with a three-year-old toddler

My three-year-old daughter and I listened to this song last weekend. As with any three-year-old when they hear a song they like, they want to hear it over and over. This song is so much fun, we probably went through five replays of it. I tried to learn the lyrics, but I couldn’t catch them all.

Listening with a seven-month-old baby

A few days later, I was staying at home with my seven-month-old daughter. She was feeling sick in the morning, but by the end of the day, she was much better. We wound up dancing to Pancake Robot. This time I wanted to really learn the lyrics, so we played the song about twenty times in a row.

Dancing with a baby is so much fun. She enjoyed it. Any time we’d stop dancing, she would start babble-talking. Maybe she was saying, “let’s continue dancing, please!”

For your lyrical pleasure, here’s the entire set of lyrics for Pancake Robot

(In bold are my favorite part of the lyrics)

Pancake Robot
Come and get ’em while they’re hot

The pancake robot is coming to town
He’s mixing up the batter and he’s laying it down
Buttermilk, blueberry, chocolate chip
50 million pancakes he’s gonna flip


All you can eat, (yum yum)
All you can eat, (yum yum)
The pancake robot is coming to town
All you can eat, (yum yum)
All you can eat, (yum yum)
It’s a pancake explosion, come and party down

Pancake Robot
Come and get ’em while they’re hot

The pancake robot is here at last
His flapjacks are flying supersonically fast
With his maple syrup cannon, and his butter pat blaster
He’s gonna feed the world, cause he’s the pancake master!


Stackity, stackity way up high
Stacking those cakes into the sky
Flippity, floppity down they go
Grab yourself a fork ’cause it’s time to mow
Flat and round, flat and round
Griddle cake griddles hot and brown!
Everybody everybody chow down!
‘Cause the pancake robot’s in town!

All you can eat,
All you can eat,
The pancake robot is coming to town
All you can eat,
All you can eat,
It’s a pancake explosion, come and party down

All you can eat, (yum yum)
All you can eat, (yum yum)
The pancake robot is coming to town
All you can eat, (yum yum)
All you can eat, (yum yum)
It’s a pancake explosion, come and party down

Pancake Robot
Come and get ’em while they’re hot

In the next month, if anyone says to me “buttermilk—”, I will immediately reply with: “—blueberry, chocolate chip. 50 million pancakes he’s gonna flip! All you can eat, (yum yum).”

I guess you could say this is my Buttermilk Challenge for the month of February.
