The "Who Dat?" chant was originated long ago in minstrel shows and vaudeville act from the end of the 19TH and early 20Th centuries. Big band musicians and jazz musicians began to scuttle the tune in the 1920s and 30"s. The 19Th Century poet Paul Laurence Dunbar was the supposed author of the chant, which, in sorts, can be found in his poem "When Malindy Sings", which later ended up in the lyrics of the song "Who Dat Say Chicken in dis Crowd," which was a song in the minstrel show "Summer Nights" by E.E. Rice. A familiar line in black minstrel entertainment was the phrase: "Who Dat?" which would be humorously responded to with the phrase "Who Dat say who dat?," far too many black-faced skits used this colloquialism during the vaudevillian era and beyond, and not in a good way.

Who dat up there who’s dat down there
Who dat up there who dat well down there
Who’s dat up there, sayin’ who’s dat down there
When I see you up there well who’s dat down there Who dat inside who’s dat outside
Who’s dat inside who dat well outside
Who’s dat inside, singin’ who’s dat outside
When I see up there well who’s dat out there Button up your lip there big boy
Stop answerin’ back
Give you a tip there big boy
Announce yourself jack Who dat up there who’s dat down there
Who dat up there who dat, well down there
Who’s dat up there, singin’ who’s dat down there
When I see you up there you bum
Well who’s dat down there Who dat
