The Lyrics

When the ice has ruts and is marred by marks,
You can’t zoom over in a trice easily.
So it must be reshaped, oh, it must re reglazed—
Gotta call on the Zam-Zamboni.
We’re callin’, callin’: “Zamboni
Yo! Zamboni
Go! Zam-Zamboni, Zamboni!”

I you try to make turns upon ugly ruts, you’ll fall
You’ll be shoutin’: “Busted butt’s hurtin’ me!”
Gotta cry-, gotta cryogenize—that is clear.
Though ass strong, must have Zam-Zamboni.
We’re callin’, callin’: “Zamboni
Yo! Zamboni
Go! Zam-Zamboni, Zamboni!!”

We’re fallin’, fallin’: Zamboni
Yo! Zamboni
Go! Zam-Zamboni, Zamboni.

When the guy gets the machine on ugly ruts, no falls.
You’ll be shoutin’: “Ugly ruts ’vederci!”
That is why, that is why they need get it out here—
No gaffes on ice after Zamboni.
No fallin’, fallin’. . .Zamboni,
Yo! Zamboni,
Go! Zam-Zamboni, Zamboni.

Whenever ice is rubble, go for Zamboni,
Slow Zamboni.
Its fans shout: “Go Zam-Zamboni!!”

Zamboni also made a machine for removing water from astroturf athletic fields, but a song about that Zamboni would probably suck! Good job. ;D

This topic was done quite a lot during the Winter Olympics, e. g.
but still a fresh spin. Put these Fives on ice.

That was a favorite buzz word in Peanuts because Charles Schulz owned an ice rink and married a skater named Jean. One of his characters was named Peggy Jean.

Yes, Lord 2Ease, the rink had characters of Schulz skating around the ice; I took my nephew up there in Santa Rosa:(SonomaCounty: TokerVille) !

He he (to paraphrase a common commenter) Loved the cryogenize reference. My take on the Zamboni was a little more violent, but yours was smoooooooooth.
