(Dedicate one to the ladies...)
Now summertime's here babe, need somethin' to keep you cool
Ah now summertime's here babe, need somethin' to keep you cool
Better look out now though, Dave's got somethin' for you
Tell ya what it is
I'm your ice cream man, stop me when I'm passin' by
Oh my my, I'm your ice cream man, stop me when I'm passin' by
See now all my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy
Hold on a second baby
I got good lemonade, ah, dixie cups
All flavors and push ups too
I'm your ice cream man, baby, stop me when I'm passin' by
See now all my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy
Hold on, one more
Well, I'm usually passin' by just about eleven o'clock

H huh, I never stop, I'm usually passin' by, just around eleven o'clock
And if you let me cool you one time, you'll be my regular stop
All right boys
I got good lemonade, ah, Dixie cups

I'll flavors and push ups too
I'm your ice cream man, stop me when I'm passin' by
See now all my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy
Yes I'm your ice cream man, stop me when I'm passin' by
I'm your ice cream man, stop me when I'm passin' by
They say all my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy
Ah, one time
I'm your ice cream man, stop me when I'm passin' by
I'm your ice cream man, stop me when I'm passin' by
They say all my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy
One time, boys
I'm your ice cream man
I'm your ice cream man
Be-be-be-be-be-be-be-baby
Ah my, my, my
All my flavors are guaranteed to satis-uh-fy
Ow

    General Comment:I think the Van Halen site says that "I got puddin' pie, banana dixie cups" is the lyric, but I've seen a Van Halen sheet music book that said "I got good lemonaid..." So, when I played this live, that was what I said because it sounds more like what Dave says. By the way, this is a cover so Dave didn't write the lyrics, but it's still one of their best songs and the definitely Van Halen-ized it.

    General Comment:This song is an inuendo for sex. "All my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy", if that ain't about sex I don't know what is.

    General Comment:Some of the lyrics are wrong. It is not "I got good lemonade," it is "I got puddin' pie."

    General Comment:Goodness, I love this song. How could you not? So much fun. I love how it's all slow at the beginning, then picks up later and rocks. Awesome solo from Eddie, too.

    General Comment:Great tune. He's driving the ice cream truck after quitting time and he mentions neopolitan ice cream. Sounds about right.
