Jonathan Richman's "Ice Cream Man"

Since VOX shut down and I lost the link to Jonathan Richman's "Double Chocolate Malted" in the post on that song, here is Richman's "Ice Cream Man," which is cute, and ice-cream-related, though not nearly as awesome as "Double Chocolate Malted." Still, it's Jonathan Richman... It's amusing to see how long this song goes on—the audience keeps asking for more. No irony here, no double entendres, or grown-up in-jokes, just a bunch of silly joy.


Lyrics:
Hi there everybody
We're the Modern Lovers
We're gonna sing about the ice cream man for you

Well now, ice cream man, upon my street
I heard your truck outside, it's really neat
Ice cream man, upon my block
Your little chimes, they reel and they rock

Ice cream man, ring your bell
Play the music, I've learned to love so well
Ice cream man, ring your chimes
In the afternoon so fine.

Ice cream man, upon my street
I heard your truck today, it was a-neat, a-neat, a-neat
Ice cream man, upon my block now,
Your chimes, your chimes they reel and rock

Now, ice cream man, upon my street
Your little truck, you know, is a-neat, neat
And ice cream man, upon my block,
I heard your chimes, I know they reel and they rock

Ice cream man, on my street
Your little truck, you know, is a-neat, a-neat, a-neat
Ice cream man, upon my block,
Your chimes, your chimes, they reel and rock

Ice cream man, upon my street,
You heard your truck today, it's neat, neat
Ice cream man, ring your chimes
In the afternoon so fine.

One more time...

Ice cream man, ring your bell
Play the music, I've learned to love
Ice cream man, ring your chimes
In the afternoon so fine
