Hi there everybody
We're the modern lovers
We're gonna sing about the ice cream man for ya

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

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

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

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

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

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

One more time

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