Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers

Ice Cream Man


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


- nej, den skal nok høres...

Modern lovers

When you get out of the hospital
Let me back into your life
I can't stand what you do
I'm in love with your eyes

And when you get out of the dating bar
I'll be here to get back into your life
I can't stand what you do
I'm in love with your eyes

I can't stand what you do
Sometimes I can't stand you
It makes me think about me
That I'm involved with you

...But I'm in love with this power that shows through in your eyes

I go to bakeries all day long
There's a lack of sweetness in my life
And there's pain inside
You can see it in my eyes

There is pain inside
You can see it in my eyes
It makes me think about me
That I've lost my pride

...But I'm in love with this power that resides in your eyes

You live in modern apartments
Well I've even got scared once or twice
Last time I walked down your street
There were tears in my eyes

Well now these streets we all know
They help us cry when we're alone late at night
Don't you love them too?
Is that where you got your eyes?

Oh I can't stand what you do
Sometimes I can't stand you
It makes me think about me
How I'm involved with you

...But I'm in love with this power that shows through in your eyes

Your world---it is beautiful
I'll take the subway to your suburb sometimes
I'll seek out the things that must've been magic to you little girl mind

Now as a little girl you must've been magic
I still get jealous of your old boyfriends in the suburbs sometimes
And when I walk down your street
There'll probably be tears in my eyes

(I knew it would happen)

I can't stand what you do
Sometimes I can't stand you
It makes me think about me
That I'm involved with you

...But I'm in love with this power that shows through in your eyes

So when you get out of the hospital
Let me back into your life
I can't stand what you do
But I'm in love with your eyes
