Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song back in 1962 when I was working my first "job" as a bus boy in an ice cream parlor. I convinced the owner to let me perform on Sunday afternoons....so I wanted a signature song to play so I wrote this song...AGAIN, back in 1964. This song has had some very different attitudes. When I played it in the late 60's and 70's, it was a tribute to the street dealers who worked the street corners ... but things ARE MUCH different now. Anyway, I always met to do a studio version of the song with a Little Feat feel to it....and here it is. I hope you enjoy it. It is just fun and a good dance song! The song comes from my new CD, "Band In The Basement".

Quirky is good! This will get some attention.

    - CodeSwitcher

Very cool and amusing piece. Really good vocal performance. Very different sound, like a really good mix of rock and honky-tonk. Cool instrumentation throughout.

Oh, the little ladies love me so
'Cause I'm the ice cream man

VERSE 2.
I've got every kind
Of tasty delight
I've got every kind
Of sweet and tasty delight
Oh, the little ladies love me so
'Cause I'm the ice cream man

CHORUS
I've got gooseberry, strawberry, blueberry, cranberry,
Black cherry, raspberry, huckleberry and Butter Pecan
I've got Banana split, Peppermint stick, Chocolate Chip,

And if you want I'll put a little bit of whipped cream on it
