The Lyrics

One of the jobs I always wanted, but never had, as a kid was working in an ice cream parlor. Here's a little slice of life story about a kid who did but couldn't keep his face out of the ice cream bins and got demoted.
I ONLY HAUL ICE FOR YOU

Hey boss, you're a generous and kind boss
Anyone would have fired me but you

But I can’t touch a scoop
In this cold lonely box I am cooped
I only haul ice for you ... boss.

Ice cream makes me high
and your mango sorbet is to die
But I only haul ice for you

I’m so sorry I’ve lost your faith boss,
Brought on your cold shoulder my way

You don’t hear
my sad cry
as those hundreds of sundaes they buy
Such torture I’ll never get through
Since I only haul ice for you.

Sometimes you just have to have fun.

Thanks Christie, TT, and Mark S. I love the way your imaginations never rest. Your comments are as funny or funnier than the parodies. :-D

Love the OS and your parody. Did you ever work for Ben and Jerry?

Thanks 2Eagle. I love parodies of classics and favorites, especially when they remain true to the spirit of the original. No, I never did, but I'm willing. I did see The Grateful Dead back in the 80's when they returned to New Orleans for the first time since being "busted on Bourbon Street" back in 1970. It was the only concert where I was actually "frisked" before entering. :-)
