Tom Waits: Ice Cream Man

ICE CREAM MAN
/Tom Waits/

I'll be clickin' by your house about two forty-five
Sidewalk sunday strawberry surprise
I got a cherry popsicle right on time
A big stick, mamma, that'll blow your mind

'Cause I'm the ice cream man, I'm a one-man band, yeah
I'm the ice cream man, honey, I'll be good to you

Baby, missed me in the alley, baby, don't you fret
Come back around and don't forget
When you're tired and you're hungry and you want something cool
Got something better than a swimming pool

'Cause I'm the ice cream man, I'm a one-man band
I'm the ice cream man, honey, I'll be good to you, yeah

'Cause I'm the ice cream man, I'm a one-man band
I'm the ice cream man, honey, I'll be good to you

See me coming, you ain't got no change
Don't worry baby, it can be arranged:
Show me you can smile, baby just for me
Fix you with a drumstick, I'll do it for free

'Cause I'm the ice cream man, I'm a one-man band
I'm the ice cream man, honey, I'll be good to you
Be good to you, be good to you
Good to you, yeah [5x]
Good to you
I'll be good to you
I'll be good to you ...
