"Surprise Truck" as written by and Lisher Krummenacher....
Well some people say
That it's the ice cream truck
But it's not
No it's not, and it's not the magic bus

It's not one of the family's buses
Oh, and it's not the ice cream truck and it's
It's not the sheriff's truck
No it's not the sheriff's truck

And they say it walks a line between good and evil
And sometimes it's bad, but it's not
And sometimes it's good, but it's not,
No it's not

And it's not the magic bus
And it's not a cement truck
No, it's a surprise truck
Surprise truck, it's a surprise truck
Oh yeah, it's a surprise truck

Surprise truck

    General CommentYou know how in films where someone steps in the road and they got run over suddenly even when there was no sound of an approaching vehicle ?

    That's a surprise truck.

    It is not the Magic Bus that The Who sang about. That's for sure.

    General CommentI always thought it was a truck, with a guy in it...who might have candy. The same guy from the Vandals song "Viking Suit" maybe.

    General CommentThis song is a parody of some of the more overblown and ridiculous examples of the 60s space rock genre.

    General CommentAmerican stasis: we never turn the page. Hearkens to Kesey's Pranksters ("the family's buses"), 1968 Chicago convention and American Realism - the cement truck. I get a flavor for Edward Hopper's paintings, hallucinogenic driven riffs (played pretty well).

    They never identify the "Surprise Truck" because they can't. It falls out of the norm. Someone turned the page and cognitive dissonance ensued. I wish it was the ice cream truck: I'm hungry!
