Remember when the ice cream man used to come to town when you was little and no matter what you was doing, you would stop and lose your fuckin’ mind? It’s something about the ice cream truck that makes kids lose it. And they can hear that shit from ten blocks away. They don’t hear their mothers calling but they hear that motherfucking ice cream truck. And no matter what was was going on, the ice man came, it stopped. You be gettin’ some marbles and shit and hear *starts humming the ice cream truck theme*
"Ice cream!! Ice cream!! The ice cream man is coming!! The ice cream man is coming!! Ma!! Ma!! Throw down some money!! The ice cream man is coming!!" Then your mother come to the window and be throwing change and say bring back my change. You catch all that shit and run down the street, top speed.
"Ice cream!!!" Ice cream man always drove an extra block tho. And I know he seen us and shit, but I think he just be in the car with his friends and saying, "Watch how fast I make these motherfuckers run." You’d be behind him doing 50 and going "Ice cream!!" He’d stop and you’d be all winded. "Thank you, ice cream man! Thank you!"
I’d get my ice cream and I didn’t eat it. I’d just sing for a little while. You know how kids are. “I have some ice cream, I have some ice cream, and I’m gonna eat it all, I’m gonna eat it all…” The ice cream be running down your arm and shit.
There would always be that one one kid on the side that didn’t get no ice cream. And kids don’t care, they’d be like, “You don’t have no ice cream! You didn’t get none! You didn’t get none! ‘Cause you are on the welfare, you can’t afford it.”
Other kids join in: “You can’t afford it, You can’t afford it, and his father is an alcoholic! You wanna eat some of my ice cream….Wanna lick…Sike! You want some ice cream. You want some ice cream.” *accidently drops ice cream* “You dropped your ice cream, you dropped your ice cream…”"
Baby close your eyes and listen to the music
Drifting through a summer breeze

how to use it
Come along with me and put your mind at ease….
