That's very funny, but what has it got to do with ping-pong? :-)

The first version of the song which we traditionally used for warm-ups was
"Papa's got a head like a ping pong ball"
Thus leading to it being known as the Ping Pong Song.

Ah, I see. That'd explain why "ping pong" works so well in the "ping pong ping pong ping pong ping pong" bit :-)
(I was faintly hoping that there might turn out to be an etymology which involved some sort of complex part-singing and the tune ping-ponging back and forth between singers, but perhaps I'm thinking of a kind of song suited to far more sensible and/or sober performers ;-)

Oh, I always heard it as "Poppy" and then associated that with Nick's Poppy Yoghurt.
