"Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay" is a vaudeville and music hall song. The song's first known public performance was in Henry J. Sayers' 1891 revue Tuxedo, which was performed in Boston, Massachusetts. The song became widely known in the version sung by Lottie Collins in London music halls in 1892. The tune was later used in various contexts, including as the theme song to the television show Howdy Doody.
When Cleveland Brown Jr. and others are cut from the Stoolbend High School marching band in "Menace II Secret Society", they pool their collective instruments to form a polka band with "Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay" as their signature song. When Cleveland tries to set Kenny West up to fail at rap, he convinces him to incorporate the polka music into his rap song "Ta-ra-ra Ay!".
Cleveland Jr.: Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay!
