The Lyrics

No explanation needed here. Enjoy the parody!
New York, New York makes everybody drool,
And no place makes me feel so full.
Where else can you eat a half a million cones
Of a treat that don’t take bull?
When they make their ice cream, ooh that old-school ice cream,
They do it with a lot of style.
But it’s still that same old almond rhythm
That really, really drives ‘em wild.

They say the heart of rocky road is still beatin’,
And from what I ate, I believe ‘em.
Now the ol’ dude may be barely breathin’,
But the heart of rocky road…
Heart of rocky road’s still beatin’.

L.A., Hollywood and ol’ South Central
Is the king of all those dessert towns.
Adam-12, Dragnet, and Emergency!
All show how it’s going down.
When they make their ice cream, that chocolatey ice cream,
They pack it with a lot of flash.
But it’s still that same marshmallow rhythm
That really, really kicks ‘em in the…

They say the heart of rocky road is still beatin’,
And from what I ate, I believe ‘em.
Now the ol’ dude may be barely breathin’,
But the heart of rocky road…
Heart of rocky road’s still beatin’.

Rouge!

[saxophone solo]

Portland, Providence and the Emerald City*,
Dallas and New Orleans.
Lincoln, Bismarck, Denver, Kansas City,
Atlanta and Chicago, too.
Everywhere there’s ice cream, real cold ice cream,
Always a million styles.
But it’s still that same old rocky road ice cream
That really, really drives ‘em wild.

Th-th-th-th-they say the heart of rocky road is still beatin’,
And from what I ate, I believe ‘em.
Now the ol’ dude may be barely breathin’,
But the heart of rocky road…
Heart of rocky road’s still beatin’, yeah.
In Cleveland.
Green Bay.
Heart of rocky road.
*-Nickname for Seattle, among other cities.
