They Call It Their "Epic Patty-Cake Song" And Now I'll Be Singing It For The Rest Of The Day
Kurt Schneider, Sam Tsui, Alex G, and Alyson Stoner play the absolute best game of patty-cake you've ever seen. The 4 friends do it while singing the song "I'll Think Of You" written by Kurt and arranged by Sam. The earliest version of the patty-cake rhyme appears in the play "The Campaigners" written by Thomas D'Urfey in 1698. What's amazing is the fact that games like patty-cake are able to survive 100's of years of history relatively unchanged. Their simple rhymes and hand motions make them ideal for passing along oral traditions. That is why some historians believe this rhyme serves to explain the process of baking bread in communal ovens. Marking the bread with a "T" would let you know which loaf was yours later.
