Parody Song Title:

"Ice Cream Man"

Parody Written by:

Scrawny Johnny

The Lyrics

Cream shirt, suede shoes
What neighborhood am I goin' to?
School's out, hot day
Summer is now underway-ay-ay

They come runnin' just as fast as they can
Cause every kid's crazy 'bout the ice cream man

Drive slow, music please
I'm well supplied with varieties
Can't run, my friend
When I drive by I'm gonna draw you in

They beg for money for as much as they can
Cause every little kid loves the ice cream man

(guitar solo)

Long lines, loud screams
Now I'm worried cause I'm outta ice cream
Riots, big mob
What a lousy, first day on the job

I drive screamin' just as loud as I can
Cause everybody's chasin' the ice cream man

(Song fades with sounds of an ice cream man screaming away with an angry mob chasing down the truck)
From Scrawny Johnny's 2nd album- "Master of Grilling"

I love it, 5-5-5! Amazing coincidence today! Two parodies of "Sharp Dressed Man" today ("Ice Cream Man" and "Fartless Man") by two different authors who both have "Johnny" as part of their author-names! And for anybody who may be, "Johnny D" and "Scrawny Johnny" are NOT the same person. This is a genuine synchronicity. I LOVE IT when this happens! ;-D

This is one of those ideas that can be turned around. There's a Van Halen song called "Ice cream man": "I'm a sharp dressed man, falling when I'm passing beer" or something like that.

Nice job, Scrawny. 5's - JD - for a moment I thought maybe you had a skinny Alter Ego running around somewhere...
