about

This song is a zeppelin-inspired desire-filled homage to this favorite kid (and grown-up!) dessert, complete with a call-and-response chant. By the end, even the kitty cats are screaming for ice cream. "Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you." Oprah Winfrey

lyrics

VERSE 1
when summertime comes
and the weather gets hot
I like to mostly think about
things which are not

like ice and snow
and swimming lakes
and my favorite food for those
sizzlin’ summertime days

so I’m hatchin’ me a plan
to be shiverin’ down
with a lick or bite of the
coolest snack in town

CHORUS
I’ll give you a guess
it’s really creamy and messy
I’ll give you a try
it’s super-cold and icy
I’ll give you a hint
it’s drippin’ down my chin
now do you know what it is?
(ice cream)
can you guess what it is?
(ice cream)

VERSE 2
when I’m playin’ in the park
and the sun is high
and I’m sweatin’ like a piggy
in a mucky muddy sty

well who should come a hummin’
right down the street
but a little white truck
full up with special treats

my friends and I chase it
on down the block
‘cause we know what it is
and we want what it’s got

DOUBLE CHORUS
I’ll give you a guess
it’s really creamy and messy
I’ll give you a try
it’s super-cold and icy
I’ll give you a hint
it’s drippin’ down my chin
now do you know what it is?
(ice cream)
waffle cone
sugar cone
cake cone
regular
cup or
dish or
stick or
sandwich
chocolate
vanilla
strawberry
sprinkle dip
do you know
what it is
(ice cream)
did you guess
what it is
(ice cream)

BRIDGE
I say who? and you say me
I say who? me, who? me
I say when? you say now, please
I say when? now, please
when? now, please
I say yum and you say me
I say yum-me, yum-me
I say ice and you say cream
I say ice cream, ice cream

BREAKDOWN
you sing, I sing
we all sing for ice cream
you scream, I scream
we all scream for ice cream
your mama screams
your daddy screams
we all scream for ice cream
your brother screams
your sistah screams
the baby screams
the grandpa screams
the doggie screams
the kitty cat screams
we all scream for ice cream
I I I I I’m gonna eat my ice cream cone
