The Lyrics

There's a saying about cold days in Hell and another one about idle hands being the Devil's tools but not until I first read about The Motorized Ice Cream Cone (http://dailyviews.runnersworld.com/2009/03/its-come-to-thi.html) did I realise that the inevitable apocalypse for lazy-ass western civilization will come with 4 horsemen, 7 signs and 37 flavors!

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLW5KQdBgZU
When I shop I always stop for idle little things
If it's apt and saving time I'm sucked into the sting
More a target than King Kong
A fool and money don't last long

Now they sell me
Spin upon my ice cream cone
Spin upon my ice cream cone
Spin upon my ice cream cone

Once I was so bona fide I made the perfect game
Bought so many stupid things that spin docs felt ashamed
Like cows allergic to the hay
Facebook has me listed "prey"

Now and then I clean out all the things that had me screwed
Cry over spilt money and the map to fountain'youth
No more do I let them scrap my bones
No way will I buy these spinning cones

So don't sell me
Spin upon my ice cream cone
Spin upon my ice cream cone
Spin upon my ice cream cone

Ouch!

All my days like in a craze for gadgets I would pay
Now I've faced the rockiest road to Hell and I won't play
So don't bring no flavours 'round
Lest I have some fifty pounds

Then come sell me
Spin upon my ice cream cone
Spin upon my ice cream cone
Spin upon my ice cream cone
Spin upon my ice cream cone
Spin upon my ice cream cone
Spin upon my ice cream cone

A motorized ice cream cone? What would make somebody even come up with that idea... Wouldn't it melt before you could enjoy it. Pretty good parody, and a great OS choice. (Love Van Halen!!!)
