The Lyrics

This song makes more sense than the original, which isn't really hard to do with this one, mine is just as sweet, sticky, gooey, and melted as the original however.

The bus was never waiting for us, girl
it ran one block ahead
As we chased after it with pants
Briefly stopping at each corner as we screamed
For it to stop.
We gave up trying to catch it and we
Knew we'd missed our chance.
Li'l Macky's sugar cone is dripping on his hands
While his ice cream is discovered by some ants
All the sweet green ice cream running in the cracks
Someone left those Dove bars in the sun
And he dropped near all his sherbet
Now it's too filthy to retrieve it
So I guess I'd better leave it
And I'll never have that fifty cents again
Oh, no! Oh no!!!

I can't forget that yellow gooey mess
Foaming like a wave.
On the ground attracting bees
The birds, who all had rabies bit you and
The good humor man was drooling by the trees.
All the ice cream is melting in the park
All the sweet Haagen Dasz flowing down
Someone pulled the plug out on my freezer
Maybe it was you, you're no crowd pleaser.
All the sweet, green ice cream flowing down
Someone left that stuff out there in the sun
And I lost my last bus ticket
'Cause it took too long to lick it
And I'll never have that fifty cents again
Oh, no! Oh no!!!
There will be another song for you
And you will sing it
There will be more ice cream for me
Maybe you could bring it.
I will drink my pepsi while it is warm
But never let you catch me having fun,
And after all the shouting and the strife
After all the contretemps with my thirteenth wife
You'll still be the one.

I will take myself to Burger King because I choose it
I will have me a cheeseburger and fries and then I'll lose it.
I will have the things that I desire
While my passions flow like rivers through the muck
And after all my thirteen other wives
Peevishly I'll wish you the best of luck
I'll be thinking of you
And wondering why.

Little Macky's cone's no longer melting in his hands
But he dropped all his ice cream off his cone
His sticky hands let it run down in the drain
But I don't think that I can repeat it
'Cause he took too long to eat it
And I'll never have that fifty cents again
Oh, no!
Oh, no!
Oh, NO!
