The Lyrics

I bet you're all curious over what this parody's about....hmmmmm! Because it's so hot here in the UK, I've written a song about one of summer's great guilty pleasures...
Hot summer's day and the kids won't behave
They're quite fractious
They're bitchin' and brayin' and itchin' and playin'
With matches

Though you-oo-ou have a head that's thro-obbin'
Take them to-oo (oh-oh) Baskin & Robbins, baby!

It's a lickin' thing
It's a sa-vi-our for the blues
Mr Whippy sings
"What's the flavour you're gonna choose?"

I've just eaten five (five five five, five)

Chocolate ices, pistachio highs
Keep me ti-ickin' (The sugarI crave)
When temp'rature climbs to the 40's, don't mind
What I'm li-ickin' (choc-chippin', choc-chippin')

Ice cre-ee-eam's my secret desi-i-ire
(Gotta have it, gotta have it)
Calori-i-ies (go-oh) higher and higherf*** it!

It's a licky thing
Yeah, it's better than drugs and booze
It's a sticky thing
Always ends up on rugs and shoes

Two bucks ninety nine? (nine, nine, nine, nine..)
What a crime (crime, crime)hey hey!

Leavin' the wife for the loves of my life
Ben & Jerry (addiction's a b!tch)
I'm sellin' my soul for some cold Rocky Road
Or straw-berry (I need it, I need it)

Ice cre-ee-eam's my one secret thrill-aaahh
(Rum 'n raisin, rum 'n raisin)
Give me three-ee (to go) killer vanillas, baby!

It's a licky thing
Yeah, it's better than drugs and booze
It's a kinky thing
Tried to give up but it's no use

(Repeat and fade)

Well, I've read it and I'm still curious as to what it's about! Just kidding, conehead! Yet another triple scoop of hilarity! Slurped it up...555

Kristof - if it's gonna be ELO, it's GOTTA be pretentious! vanilla, strawberry, rum'n'raisin? come off it! ELO would be licking "lime-infused lychee/macadamia nut swirl" or "balsamic and boysenberry bliss with toasted almond sprinkle" - (jk) once I recalled the way the OS started this was a treat, Kristof - a "triple treat" in fact (remember them?) - 555

I'm going with Spumani. Exactly what I thought this parody would be about, of course =)

555. (spumoni, is what he means---pistachio/cherry ice cream). But nothing satisfies as much as good ol' plain Breyer's vanilla (with the little bean slivers).
