LyricsI work at Burger King making flame-broiled whoppers, I wear paper hats.Would you like an apple pie with that?Would you like an apple pie with that?Ding! Fries are done. Ding! Fries are done.Ding! Fries are done. Ding! Fries are done.I gotta run. I gotta run. I gotta run. I gotta run.Don"t bob for fries in hot fat.They hurt bad and so do skin grafts.Would you like an apple pie with that?Would you like an apple pie with that?Where is the bell? Wait for the bell.Can"t hear the bell. Where is the bell? While it is likely that this commercial was a mock up that was never aired but the record album does exist. The album was available on cassette tape only and could be ordered by mailing a check to a PO Box in Burbank, California. On December 11th, 1994, "Ding Fries Are Done" was featured for the first time on the Dr. Demento radio show as part of his annual Christmas-themed episodes. It has been featured over an additional 40 times on the show since then.
Years after the flash video appeared, communities like the eBaums World forums started asking questions about the origin of the song. Currently, the identity of "Billy" is assumed to be someone named Brent Calvin.
